Errol Morris interviewed Ed Gein, and, along with his friend Werner Herzog, wanted to exhume Augusta Gein's grave to see if Ed robbed it. But only Herzog was present and he didn't commit. YO!!!!

Ed Gein was a momma's boy, dominated by a tyrannical, pious woman named Augusta Gein. His father was an enfeebled drunk and his brother, Henry, had died around the same time as his dad, and so it was only Ed and Augusta until her death the mid 50s. She was a bossy cunt throughout her entire life, becoming sort of like Ed's God. Consciously, he loved her, but subconsciously, he hated her. And so, he exhumed plenty and murdered two elderly women, butchering, tanning, and defiling their bodies as of means of bringing her mother back to life and killing her at the same time. He was a disturbed individual, desiring to be a woman, who inspired Leatherface, Buffalo Bill, and Norman Bates, along with, more generally, inspiring the Slasher genre. He's buried in an unmarked grave next to his mother. (also, fun fact, in his retrial after being pronounced sane, he looked at the crime photos of the woman he butchered, and had been aroused, staring at the photos for 5 minutes).

I enjoyed hearing about Ed Gein, it's certainly satiated my morbid curiosity, I will say it's a little exhaustive in the details they share. A lot of witness accounts were quoted, even false ones and gallows humor, which I thought was a little circuitous. Otherwise, very insightful and wonderfully illustrated!

From what I can tell, this is a “based on a true story” kind of nonfiction. Relatively few sources are provided, so large parts of the narrative appear to be fabricated. A little disappointing for me, because I wanted some clarity on the man behind the genderqueer serial killer movie stereotype and how much of that characterization is Freudian weirdness. I’ll have to find out a different way.

Feels weird rating it, so I’ll keep it unrated for now.

Over the top fun. Probably not for everyone but it leaves me laughing all the time.

I don't read the Goon comics. I don't know anything about the existing story line, or the world that the Goon inhabits in general. But someone recommended this graphic novel, and I had it written down on a list of things to take a look at.

I found it at our local comic store, flipped about 4 pages into it, and decided to get it.

Here's the things about graphic novels. You're going to end up spending at least $20 - $30 dollars on one.

For me, they've got to appeal on two levels to justify spending that amount of money. They've got to tell a good story. A story that would stand on it's own if it were told in a conventional format. And it's got to be beautiful. The art work has to be good enough that I'm happy to just sit and look at the pictures. Art work that's good enough that if I ran across it, apart from the story, I'd stop and admire it.

I judge graphic novels more harshly than I do a single comic issue or a paperback book. I've read many many bad graphic novels, and only a handful of good ones. I think that the graphic novel has the potential to be an astounding story telling vehicle. It also has the potential to be nothing more than a bunch of comics bound in a hardcover selling for 30 bucks.

The Goon: Chinatown is everything I've hoped a graphic novel could be.

It is a complete and intriguing story told with both dialogue and beautiful artwork.

I didn't feel like I should have known more about the Goon character before picking this graphic novel up.

Everything you need to know is contained in the Graphic Novel.

I've read a few criticisms that say this story lacks the "feel" of previous Goon works. Specifically that it lacks
the comedy that The Goon usually has. But if you're new to the Goon, that's not really an issue.

If you're curious about graphic novels, if you want to see what a good graphic novel can do, I highly recommend this book.
