‘The Boys’ is an excellent comic, which my friends have heard me raving about for ages! And now its available on GraphiclyÂ from Dynamite Entertainment. Currently issues #1-#3 are available.
Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), co-creators of two of the most thought-provoking comics of the last decade, introduce their first original collaboration for a new monthly series: THE BOYS – a dark, twisted look at super powers, super-people, and the men and women who make sure the world’s ‘heroes’ never go too far. With a quarter-million super-powered beings in the world, someone’s got to watch what’s going on beneath all those masks and capes. In a U.S.A. uncomfortably like our own, that task falls to The Boys, a government-funded group of operatives dedicated to keeping the ‘supes’ in line. Team leader Billy Butcher, described by a confidential C.I.A. report as ‘the most lethal individual ever encountered by this agency,’ is on the hunt for new recruits – but it takes something special to join this outfit. You have to be smart. You have to be strong. And you have to hate supes with every ounce of black passion in your heart.
