SDCC 2010: THE GOON Panel

I'll be honest: I am not familiar with Eric Powell's popular comic book series The Goon. However, people I trust not only say the comic is terrific, but they told me that the panel for the film adaptation for the past several years has been hilarious. After going to this year's panel and listening to actor Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911!) banter with Powell, Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler of Blur Studio (who are animating the film), voice actor Paul Giamatti, and producer David Fincher, I will tell you this: I'm going to make sure I'm damn familiar with The Goon. Not only did it deliver on this promised hilarity, but even more than the panel for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, this one relies on the fans in a big way. You see, The Goon doesn't have a green light. It has a teaser that's trying to raise interest for a movie that doesn't have studio backing yet. That means the fans need to go online and let people know they love it. Needless to say, they loved it and they're going to go online and let people know that.
