For a certain generation, the words Pink Panther may unfortunately conjure memories of a couple of bad Steve Martin movies from the mid-2000s. But for those who skipped that theatrical reboot, they may recall a series of mystery movies from 1963 through 1993 that largely starred Dr. Strangelove actor Peter Sellers as the bumbling protagonist, a clueless Chief Inspector named Jacques Clouseau.

Last year’s panel for The Goon, Eric Powell‘s odd comic book series about two friends who (to grossly over-simplify) live in a city infested by a plague of zombies, was unbridled insanity. This year’s panel was a lot more restrained, despite the presence of returning moderator Ben Garant.
This year it was all about the movie that is in development based on The Goon, so things were a little more restrained. Producer David Fincher was in the house, and while the panel wasn’t all business (by a long shot) it definitely focused more on what the movie might be and how it could get made than anything else.
