GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Boom Boom!” Henchman21 and “Mr. Tuesday Night” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 31, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Now, something is happening today in comics. I’m not exactly sure what it is, but… oh yeah! It’s the day that the new Locke and Key issue comes out! Oh, you expected us to talk about Justice League or Flashpoint? Get real! This feature is about comics that we are looking forward to the most, and the last time I checked, we’re way more interested in indie comics. Also, there’s not any Batman comics coming out this week, and I honestly don’t know where a lot of those will stand in my favorite comics. The Hench and I aren’t holding back this week, so if you’ll let me check my watch real quick… Yep. It’s clobberin’ tiiiiiiiime!!!!!!!!!

Eric Powell Looks To Expand ‘The Goon’ Universe This Fall

buzzardEric Powell has been a busy man as of late. Last week it was announced that his amazingly awesome epic The Goon had gone digital and now MTV has debuted the first look at Powell’s new Goon spin-off miniseries Buzzard.

Buzzard will be a three-issue miniseries set in The Goon‘s universe that focuses on a former sheriff who now craves flesh! But not the kind of flesh you may assume. The Buzzard man was originally the sheriff of a town where all the inhabitants went all George Romero on him and started craving brain pancakes for breakfast. Buzzard himself was spared of the Left 4 Dead syndrome until he meets a mysterious Priest, who cast upon him a spell that intended to turn the sheriff into a zombie but instead achieved quite the opposite: a near-immortal man who must consume the flesh of the dead.

Powell talked to MTV News about the characters origins…

Dethklok – Video Games And Comic Books Get Metal

Dethklok, the band from Adult Swim’s series Metalocalypse, is heading to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network in a new game from Konami.

Users will play as a Dethklok roadie named Klokateer who will go up against “a heinous rampage [of] rabid mutant fans in brutal combat,” while protecting the pure fans that are presumably non-mutants. And off course players will be entertained with music from Dethklok, including three all-new songs.

While I am psyched about the idea of a totally metal game like this, I’m a little disappointed that there’s no mention of The Goon, who most recently crossed paths with the Norwegian musicians in the 32-page one-shot Dethklok vs The Goon comic from Dark Horse. If you are bashing mutants or the like, then it’s only natural to let him crossover again as a secret or unlockable character. (I don’t even really care if he kills the roadie, just put him in, ok game studio!?)

First Images From Comic Adaptation ‘The Goon’

Goon

For those who don’t know, the Dark Horse comic from Eric Powell, The Goon, is currently being developed into a feature length computer animated movie. Even better, visionary director David Fincher is acting as a producer on the film.

A couple of new images have been released for the project, and they give you a great look at the work being done. Fans of the comic and fans of movies alike can definitely get behind this.

The Goon follows your typical huge, muscular dude who handles things for a mob boss along with his scrappy little sidekick, Franky. In this world, however, things don’t just come down to dealing with a runner who’s late on his payments or a rival mob trying to slip in. In this world, many problems also include many paranormal beings and creatures, including a dangerous gang of zombies who are lead by a zombie priest.

Be sure to click over for the images. Also included, if you missed it, a sweet poster was unveiled last year at Comic Con. All of these can be enjoyed below courtesy of AICN.
