Dark Horse Provides Retailer Incentives for Eric Powell's Chimichanga



June 21, MILWAUKIE, OR—Eric Powell, the Eisner Award–winning creator of The Goon, takes readers on the road with a traveling show populated by a bizarre and endearing cast of characters in Chimichanga ($14.99), his first-ever tale for audiences of all ages!

In celebration of this release, Dark Horse and creator Eric Powell have extended their initial order incentive. Now through July 6, for every three copies of the hardcover that you order, you will receive one free copy of the original issue #1—signed by Eric Powell!

Originally a three-issue limited series, Chimichanga was hailed by Broken Frontier as “full of that youthful vigor that makes The Goon such a delight,” and it’s just one event in what assistant editor Daniel Chabon described to consumers as “the return of Eric Powell”:

“His hit series The Goon comes back in its bimonthly schedule, a new Billy the Kid series is on the horizon, and on September 28, get ready for his first all-ages book, Chimichanga—a story about an adorable little bearded girl who must save her ailing sideshow with the help of a large, green, googly-eyed behemoth she gets from a witch’s magic egg.

“Has that piqued your interest yet? Our deluxe hardcover edition will feature all the previously published Chimichanga comics; a brand-new ten-page story made especially for this edition and colored by Eisner Award winner Dave Stewart, and some early concept designs and sketches. Be sure to grab a copy of this book, because you’re in for a treat!”
