This volume is a strange, but engaging, compilations of stories. They range from an awkwardly silly 2 page short about a simpleton crapping his pants to old school sci-fi monsters fighting Godzilla style to tormented soul and bleeding heart drama.
Apart from the return of The Buzzard, this volume doesn't advance the story of the Goon, nor does it give you any further insight into its characters. What it does bring is an entertaining group of stories. My favorite is the Hellboy crossover.
