If you will be in the Washington, DC area this weekend you should consider hitting the Small Press Expo, right outside DC in Bethesda, MD. It's an annual convention celebrating the little guys in comics. You won't really see Marvel or DC represented here; smaller companies like Top Shelf and Fantagraphics regularly set up vending tables at the event. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund will be represented as well. The exhibitors will include everything from writers and artists who have managed to get published by one of the bigger small presses to little guys who have gotten lucky enough to do a smaller project for one of the Big Two to people who had an idea they put down on paper then went to Kinko's in the middle of the night to xerox and staple copies together themselves. In years past people such as Frank Miller, Jeff Smith, Tony Millionaire, »

It's been a while since our last update on "The Goon" movie front, but that's because creator Eric Powell has been busy planning his horror-noir hero's return to comics — both the print and digital kind.
Two "Goon" tales his the iPhone comics world today: The celebrated graphic novel "Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker" and the special one-shot story "The Goon" #7, featuring Hellboy. Later this year, Powell will return to the universe he created with a new, three-issue miniseries based on one of his most tragic characters, the mysterious Buzzard, and eventually follow that up with a return to regular creative duties on "The Goon" comic book series.
MTV News caught up with Powell to chat about The Goon's debut on the iPhone, and what else he has planned for the Goon when the regular series returns.
MTV: "The Goon"... on the iPhone. This is... unexpected.
Eric Powell: [Laughs] It's interesting. »
