After pretty sporadic publication throughout 2010, Eric Powell's hillbilly horror swamp comedy/drama The Goon is returning to Dark Horse starting in June. Powell has, of course, been keeping busy between two-fisted adventures of tough guys wrecking swamp monsters, but some of us have been missing his most famous creation.

Powell talked to MTV Geek recently about the return of the book, what he's been up to, and provides a (mini) update on the status of the much-anticipated movie.

MTV Geek: So where’ve you (and The Goon) been, man?

Eric Powell: Well, I was working on the Goon screenplay, my self published all ages book Chimichanga, Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities, The Buzzard mini-series, and Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters.

Geek: Now that you’re back at it, what’s the overall plan for The Goon? It felt like a lot of last year was about clearing out the decks.

EP: Yep, I don't want The Goon to ever get stagnant. I try to change up the tone so no one knows what to expect. That's definitely the plan for the next few issues. Between Chinatown and the monthly run of "The Return of Labrazio" the book took on a more serious somber tone. I feel like doing some crazier stuff now.

Geek: You’ve mentioned in the past that you’re taking the Mignola route with your book, focusing on one universe. Will that ever mean bringing in other creators to expand the world of the Goon?

EP: I doubt it. When I mentioned Mignola, I believe I actually mentioned Mignola and Jeff Smith, [and] I was referring to maintaining focus on one project in order to build it's momentum. I've succeeded at that. Now I just have to maintain it! Mike has spread his characters out successfully to build his own little universe. I don't think that's the way for me to go. I don't want The Goon to have a universe.

Geek: What kind of schedule are you planning for the return of the book?

EP: We're going back to the original bi-monthly schedule.

Geek: Chinatown was, for me, the most incisive look at the character and how his mind works. When can we expect more looks at Goon’s past?

EP: I have a fun story planned in the next few issues about his teenage years. But that's all I can tell you.

Geek: Along the same lines, any plans for more spin-offs like last year’s Buzzard story?

EP: Nope. Buzzard needed some closure. That's why he got a mini-series. I might return to him, but nobody else needs their own book. Sometimes a supporting character is best used as a supporting character. Read More...

He's been in the news a lot lately, and now he's got his own Bluewater comic book! Political Power: Donald Trump is written by Jerome Maida and has a cover by Joe Phillips, will be released in October 2011 by Bluewater Productions. Take your first look at Political Power: Donald Trump, and then read on for more details!

He seems to be everywhere; on television, in book stores and most recently, elbowed his way into the current political morass. But whether he’s “firing” reality contestants, running a billion dollar corporation, picking fights with celebrities or toying with the idea of a presidential bid, Donald Trump’s larger than life persona has been captured for an upcoming Bluewater Productions biography comic.

“Political Power: Donald Trump,” scheduled for an October 2011 release, follows the polarizing life and career of the high-profile tycoon, presidential aspirant and media bon vivant.

“We’re trying to portray him less as a caricature and more as potential leader of the free world,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis on why Trump’s biography was being published via the “Political Power” brand. “Whether you agree with his political posturing or find him completely self-interested and insincere, he’s pulling up a chair at 2012 Republican presidential nomination table.”

Written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida, the 32-page Trump comic biography covers his transition from real-estate magnate who took over his successful father’s company to “The Donald,” the eponymous moniker that fuels tabloids, drives television ratings and relishes the spotlight.

"Trump may be egocentric, he may be a grandstander and a loudmouth, but there’s no denying he has the attention of America,” said Maida.

The issue, which will sport a cover from noted artist Joe Phillips, will retail for $3.99. It will be available through comic book shops and several online venues such as Amazon.com and the Barnes and Noble and Borders.

The “Political Power” series was launched earlier in 2009 as a companion piece to the successful “Female Force” biography title. The comic allowed Bluewater to delve into the lives and power and legacy of some of the most important and powerful political personalities of the past generation regardless of gender.

Last time on Amazing Spider-Questions, we got you caught up to speed on everything happening in Peter Parker’s world, with Spidey’s own Editor Steve Wacker. This week, we’re checking in after the events of issue #656, which found Spidey donning a brand new armor, battling a brand new villain named Massacre, and making a brand new promise that no one dies when Spider-Man is around.

We chatted with Wacker over e-mail about all these events, as well as getting a look behind-the-scenes at the development of Spidey’s new costume, and your very first look at the new Spider-Man event, "Infested":

MTV Geek: Let’s talk about Spidey’s new costume… There seems to be a LOT of attention paid to a new Spider-Man costume by the fans, almost more than other heroes – how much consideration did you guys put into the new one? Did Marcos Martin turn in a first draft, and you said, “Sold!” or is there a lot of internal debate and back and forth?

Steve Wacker: On Spidey right now, we have three very strong designers in Marcos, Humberto and Stefano. In addition Dan is also very specific in his plots for what the various costumes can do and what they look like.

On top of that, the basic Ditko Spidey costume design (which is where you’d start any new design from) is so strong, it’s hard to screw up.

So there hasn’t been a ton of going back and forth so far on overall concepts. In each case they were pretty clearly communicated at the top. Plus, I’m more apt to trust these artists’ instincts given how much great work they’ve done through the years.

But there have been some adjustments in terms of color scheme and details. You can see here where we were playing with some of the aspects of Marcos’ Spider-Armor: Read More...
