Preview by Publisher Blurb
Since debuting in 1999, The Goon has won constant critical praise as well as a large and rabid fan base for creator Eric Powell. This beautiful Artist's Edition features Powell's Goon original graphic novel, Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker, the opus that earned the writer/artist two Eisner Awards!Each page of this Artist's Edition was scanned under close supervision by Powell himself to ensure the finest reproduction possible of his delicate and stunning original art-many pages of which were in color washes and sepia tones as storytelling devices
which only adds to the beauty of the originals. What is an Artist's Edition? AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART. While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art-for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
