The Goon Re-Enacts ‘A Christmas Carol’ – Dark Horse Comics: A Goon Christmas – YouTube

14 12 2012

Rejoice! Writer and artist Eric Powell, and Director Erik Bruhwiler bring you a ‘Christmas Carol’ like no other!

This version of Dickens’ festive tale re-imagines the classic Victorian tale in a style more in keeping with ‘The Goon’. Powell clearly enjoys subverting some of the characteristics of the various protagonists within the narrative. In particular, Bob Cratchett seems more interested in enjoying himself, than providing for his sickly child. Instead of working on Christmas day, as Scrooge suggests, Bob declares “Screw that! I’m making merry, aka gettin’ real drunk!”
