Publisher's Summary

An ongoing, episodic "prose comic" from which the pictures are summoned by the magic of words, Goon Squad is set in an alternate version of modern-day Manchester. Its biggest divergence from the real city is that it - along with most other large urban centers - has a team of superheroes to protect it against unusual threats with which the conventional forces of law and order would have problems.
Goon Squad: Year One offers three action-packed volumes in a single collection:
Goon Squad, Vol. 1: Special Talents

"The New Girl"
"By the Water, by the Grave"
"No-No Dojo"
"Exterminating Angel"

Goon Squad, Vol. 2: Without Sin

"A Star in Strange Ways"
"Holy Fool"
"Dead Man Tells Tale"
"A Brief History of the Goon Squad"
"Tale of Terror"
"Pomona Island"

Goon Squad, Vol. 3: Old Enemies

"Life During Wartime"
"Red Wolf, Red Wolf, Does Whatever a Red Wolf Can"
"Shadow of the Vivisector"
"The Man from Switzerland"
"The End of the Year Show"

Manchester's Premiere Super Team

I like the Goon Squad series and I hope to see more of it. I like the characters, I like the stories, especially the last one, and I hope Howard continues with it. My one problem is that the narrator wasn't very good when it came to the male voices in the stories. I like her Nadia, but her voices of Ian and Gilbert became grating to me. Especially Ian. I hope that the next stories have more varied narration. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes superheroes.
