Director Troy Duffy has returned to the world of the 1999 cult classic film, The Boondock Saints for a third and final season, now on Macroverse. The Boondock Saints: Season 3 – Mob War is written by Duffy and J.B. Love, illustrated by Guus Floor and colored by Matt Browning. It features Macroverse’s signature “TapStory” spin, as produced by Eben Matthews and Adam Martin.
This season finds the four remaining families of New York’s La Cosa Nostra at each other’s throats. Noah McManus is about to become “Il Duce” and things couldn’t be better for him. His childhood friend and partner in vengeance, Louie Patronazzi would control him for his own ends, but that’s easier said than done. McManus is more monster than man.
“Watching the Boondock Franchise expand into new mediums is awesome,” said writer and director Troy Duffy. “Telling new stories gives more muscle to the overall saga, from father to sons and beyond. Macroverse seems to me where comics need to go, like everything else they are updated to a new, more cinematic experience. And though the latest chapter wraps up this series, there may be more on the way!”
“The Boondock Saints series brought me back to comics. A lot of what we’ve built with Macroverse is a direct result of putting this series together,” said Macroverse co-founder Eben Matthews. “Working with Troy – the original creator of the Saints franchise has been wonderful and is a blueprint for how we think about bringing existing worlds and characters into the Macroverse format. For us, it’s about expansion not adaptation – this gives creators an opportunity to dig into NEW stories – to explore complementary but different areas from the source material. Troy and the rest of the creative team took full advantage of that opportunity and crafted something special here. All Boondock Saints fans will love it. I know I do.”
Macroverse also features a special capsule story, The Boondock Saints: The Lost Gig following fan-favorite Rocco and the Brothers McManus as they take on a group of drug dealers just before their famous encounter with Vincenzo. This is also written by Duffy and Love, and illustrated by Toby Cypress.
