The issue's first story is the Billy the Kid one, and it introduces the reader to the aforementioned Ossified Baby. (For those who enjoy this issue of The Goon, Powell and co-creator Kyle Hotz--who also provides artwork here--recently began the third miniseries of miniseries featuring Billy and his gang, Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities and The Orm of Loch Nes.) The four pager serves as an introduction of sorts to both Billy's world and the Baby, closing with the ominous words "Thank the Dark God. Our burden has been lifted."

Though it's been out for a few days now, when you find yourself back at your local comic shop this coming Wednesday, you could do mu-u-u-uch worse than to make issue 43 of The Goon your first!
