Dynamite Entertainment has announced that they’ll be releasing Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s Eisner-nominated series, The Boys, in a new omnibus format for readers wanting to catch up with the series before the television adaptation debuts with Amazon Prime Video in 2019.
The first volume is going to clock in at 344 pages, containing the first 14 issues of the series in one oversized trade collection. Featuring the “most brutal government operatives ever assembled” the series was created by Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and Peter Snejbjerg.
The Boys Omnibus Edition Volume 1 will be “restored” and also features bonus art materials, the script to issue #1 by Garth Ennis, a complete cover gallery with artwork by Darick Robertson and more.
Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them — sometimes — need to be taken out of the picture. That’s when you call in The Boys! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line. Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother’s Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: A CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth – superpower!
Dynamite’s CEO and Publisher, Nick Barucci comments:
The Boys has long been one of our proudest achievements in our 14 years of publishing. Garth and Darick poured blood, sweat, and tears into the project for six years and 72 issues and we’re excited to see new, affordable, collected editions for fans on stands in time for the much awaited Amazon Prime Video adaptation. There’s never been a better time to read this series.
The Boys Omnibus Volume 1 will be released in stores in March 2019. The Boys Omnibus Volume 2 and The Boys Omnibus Volume 3 are expected in May and July 2019.
The Boys Omnibus Volume 1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ December 2018 Previews catalog and slated for release in February 2019.
