THE THREAT: There are villainous monsters, mutants, freaks, and warped masterminds in the world, beyond the ability of conventional police forces to deal with.
THE SOLUTION: Recruit your own monsters, mutants, freaks, and warped masterminds, and give them warrant cards.
Every large urban centre has its own Special Talents Response Team, a small cadre of unusual personalities with unusual abilities.
Manchester's is the infamous GOON SQUAD, a team that has been operating continuously since the 1940s. Based in the heart of the city, their brief is to deal with threats ranging from the slightly odd to the very strange indeed.
Join the GOON SQUAD as they bring law and a degree of order to a city under siege from the forces of weirdness.
GOON SQUAD is a "prose comic," an ongoing episodic story that unfolds in handy monthly issues.

"Dead Man Tells Tale"
Listen to the tale the dead man tells.
Ian Mears is the longest continuously serving member of Manchester's GOON SQUAD. As the Revenant he has fought crime, confronted supervillains, and had more limbs severed than he cares to think about.
Whilst regenerating his most recently lost right arm, Ian lapses into a recuperative coma, hoping that he will not dream.
It is a vain hope. He dreams of the man he used to be when he was merely mortal and all the happier for it. It is a disjointed dream, and parts of it may not be the truth, but he must listen and watch through his own unreliable narrative the events leading up to his death and rebirth as a cynical, embittered zombie.
