After an assault by a mysterious and monstrous milkman, a typical American housewife has finally had too much of her hideous, deranged family, and she takes a simple word of advice from her idol, the perfect 1950's mom on her television screen -- "Discipline." From the minds of Joe Casey and Steve Parkhouse comes the most shocking of all Dark Horse's new brand of horror comics. The unraveling of our forlorn homemaker's hopes leads to unprecedented terror, heralded by a demonic vision -- The Milkman, a twisted parody of a Norman Rockwell image as painted by serial-killing folk-artist John Wayne Gacy.

Celebrate ten years of The Goon with this collection of two hilarious Goon stories and the Buzzard miniseries! This volume includes the landmark tenth--anniversary special and the riotous (and silent) One--Shot Wonder issue, plus a poignant adventure of the immortal Buzzard, wandering a desolate land after his confrontation with the Zombie Priest. Filled with equal parts comedy and misfortune, this collection serves as both an epilogue to the Goon Year epic and the beginning of the next chapter in the story of Lonely Street's tragic protector! Five-time Eisner Award-winning series! "Every panel [is] gorgeously detailed, like a Max Fleischer cartoon if Cthulu spat some sort of hellish bile all over it. Few artists can actually, truly justify the purchase of a comic through their art alone, but Powell is certainly one of them." --ign.com
