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"
Goon Squad, Vol. 2: Without Sin
"A Star in Strange Ways"
"Dead Man Tells Tale"
"A Brief History of the Goon Squad"
"Tale of Terror"
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"

Extremely Well Written and Engrossing
Interesting alternate reality, good plotting and likeable and distinct characters. Good narration. A good listen.
