About Who Mourns for Bob the Goon?



Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? is about veterans who all attend a therapy group because they believe they are, or were, third tier comic book characters.  Each member of the group has dealt with their PTSD by identifying with the less heroic, and more obscure, men and women from the comics.  They don't think they're Batman or Superman, but rather folks like Bob the Goon, who was a Joker Henchman from the '89 Batman.  The group begins to unravel when an ex-pilot, Langly, joins up despite her belief that she is from an anime, not a comic.
