13th Funniest Comic Book - The Goon

When I want to let folks know what the Goon is all about, I always turn to a scene where the Goon and his best friend Frankie are having an altercation with some folks, and a fellow tries to reason with Frankie, which appears to be working, until Frankie bellows, "Knife to the eye!" and stabs him in the eye with a big knife.

It's that absurd physical comedy, along with a number of amusing takes on the horror genre (like when the Goon unionizes ghouls), that makes Eric Powell's The Goon so darn special.
