Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks Announces GRUMBLE VS THE GOON for Free Comic Book Day
Award-winning cartoonist Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Goon with its first ever Free Comic Book Day title in 2019. GRUMBLE VS THE GOON is a side-splitting, full color one shot co-written by Powell and Rafer Roberts and illustrated by Powell and BATTLE BUG creator Mike Norton. Here, for the first time ever, The Goon and his pal Franky will meet Tala and Eddie, from the pages of GRUMBLE, in an interdimensional adventure, chock full of death, mayhem... and dog catching.

“We really wanted to do something special for Free Comic Day.” said THE GOON creator Eric Powell. “ A gift to comic readers that would celebrate 20 years of the Goon and show off what Albatross Funnybooks is all about. Creative freedom and fun comics. I’m thrilled to collaborate with Mike and Rafer on this project and have Grumble alongside the Goon representing the company.”

Spin Master Locks Licensing with DC Comics

DC Comics
Mattel has been at the wheel of the DC Comics action figure machine for as long as I can remember, turning our favorite heroes and villains into toys for babies, tweens and old, crotchety men complaining about an ab-crunch or lack thereof, alike. Now we are faced with the exciting prospect of another massive toy manufacturing giant taking on the DC toy license and I, personally, can't wait to see how they make their mark on modern action figure engineering.

Two teenaged brothers, Jimmy (Mark Dacascos, John Wick 3) and Billy Lee (Scott Wolf, Party of Five) find themselves in possession of the amulet's missing half, thrusting them into the adventure of their lives.

Emmet Cancels the Apocalypse in the LEGO Movie 2 Holiday Short

LEGO Movie 2 Holiday Short
We all have that friend who is eternally sunny...maybe even annoyingly so. You want to wallow in a good, solid funk and there they are, singing and trying to hug you. Gross. My friends all love Halloween, so at the very least, when the Holidays kick into full gear and the Christmas music starts getting blasted from every communist lawn, I can take comfort that I will see Tim Burton-esque decorations in my feed, trees full of eyeballs and, of course, elves on shelves...on fire. Today, we celebrate both the eternally sunny optimist and the morose, doom-sayer who can appreciate a light display that stings the eyes...because you can't have LEGO Emmet without LEGO Batman.
