There aren't many characters like the Goon in comics and there aren't many creators as unique and enjoyable as Eric Powell.IGN** After the tragic events of _Occasion of Revenge_, the witch coven believes that control of the unnamed town will soon be in their grasp and the Goon's tragic soul will contribute to the curse that increases their power. But has their plot destroyed the Goon or created a monster too savage for them to withstand? _Once upon a Hard Time_ is a climactic miniseries that has major consequences for the Goon and his supporting cast.
