The classic novel by celebrated American author Mark Twain tells of a
teenage misfit accompanied by an escaping slave, Jim, as the two float down the
Mississippi River by raft. As their journey unfolds, Huck and Jim encounter
adventure, danger, and a deftly scribed cast of characters that are by turns
both menacing and hilarious.
This special edition of The Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn contains 21 illustrations by comics industry star Eric Powell
(The Goon), and presents the material as Twain intended.
Eric Powell is a writer and artist from Nashville, Tennessee who has contributed work for every major publisher in the comics industry. In 1999 Eric launched his critically acclaimed creator owned series THE GOON. In 2002 Eric Launched ALBATROSS EXPLODING FUNNYBOOKS in an effort to keep the Goon alive when no other publisher wanted it because it was too "different." But the readers spoke and The Goon quickly became an indy hit and picked up a diehard cult following. The Goon found a home and a wider audience with DARK HORSE COMICS, but Eric continued to publish creator owned comics through Albatross such as his all ages comic CHIMICHANGA and Rebecca Sugar's (creator of Steven Universe) PUG DAVIS. Eric has spent his career creating and promoting the validity and importance of creator owned comics through Albatross and other publishers such as Dark Horse and Image Comics. In 2016 Eric rededicated himself in earnest to his publishing company, ALBATROSS FUNNYBOOKS, and launched his new fantasy series HILLBILLY, his kid's horror anthology SPOOK HOUSE, as well as other creator owned titles. Eric has been working in collaboration with acclaimed director David Fincher, Tim Miller, and Blur Studios to bring The Goon to life on the big screen as an animated feature film.
