CBC #21 joins Eric Powell in celebrating 20 years of his signature character, The Goon! In a comprehensive career-spanning interview, the creator shares about his background, development of the two-fisted character, and plans for the next quarter-century--including a mouth-watering gallery of rarely seen artwork. Plus CBC editor and author of the new retrospective The Book of Weirdo, Jon B. Cooke, conducts a rare new interview with perhaps the greatest cartoonist of all time, R. CRUMB, about the artist's work on that legendary humor comics anthology. Ye Ed also details the Book of Weirdo book tour; starting his first podcast, Subterranean Dispatch; and future plans about a history of alternative comix. Plus John Romita Sr. shares his appreciation for the work of the great comic strip artist Milton Caniff. Also look for our usual excellent features by our regular gang of contributors, including another "Dateline" installment by Our Man Hembeck! Edited by Jon B. Cooke.
