Of Tweets, Bad Beer, and #Goonilogue…

Nicole Sixx 06/17/2011 Reviews

So Dark Horse Comics, revolutionary/pioneering company that they are, has taken to hosting all out twitter chats with us the fans over amazing things.

 

Thursday, June 16th’s amazing thing this year was a fantastic chat with Goon creator, Eric Powell his amusing self.

 

Always in attendance on anything awesome and Dark Horse that I find myself free to cover, I have taken the honor of transcribing yesterday’s twitter correspondence here for you all below so you can enjoy it as much as I did.

 

Eric Powell (aka @goonguy) is displayed in Bold, Dark Horse Comics (aka @DarkHorseComics) is displayed in Bold/Italic, and myself (@nicolesixx_) in regular Italic.

 

Enjoy!!
