With the animated spinoff The Boys: Diabolical currently streaming on Prime Video, and the third season of the popular show premiering in June, Dynamite is set to release the third and final oversized omnibus hardcover of the original comic series of The Boys this June.
Writer and co-creator Garth Ennis said in a statement, “Great to see these new editions from Dynamite, I hope there’ll be many more.”
“With Season 3 of the Amazon Prime show about to launch, people are showing a lot of interest in the original comics,” added artist and co-creator Darick Robertson. “And these omnibuses have been a great opportunity for new readers to jump in and discover the original stories that inspired the show.”
The edition contains nearly 800 beautiful oversized pages, wrapped in a sleek dustjacket, and stuffed with plenty of extras, such as sketchbook excerpts from Robertson and Russ Braun and a pinup gallery. Saved for this finale is the original series outline, with added commentary by Ennis in addition to curated scripts with commentary and art process.
Thirty full issues are reprinted within, comprising #49-72 of the core title series, as well as the third and final original interlocked miniseries, Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker.
Read details below:
“In this harrowing and explosive last chapters, all of the deepest, darkest secrets are revealed that the hit show has yet to delve deeply into. Wee Hughie is guided by Mallory through the early history of The Boys, including their first face-off with The Seven. Then, take a bit of a breather – not really – with a chronicle through fan-favorite Billy Butcher’s earliest years and his life with Becky before everything went wrong. Only to jump back to the main arcs as Butcher finally nears getting his revenge and Homelander starts a literal superhuman war. Lastly, it all falls to Hughie for the climax, and we wouldn’t dare spoil it!”
The Boys: Oversized Omnibus HC VOL 3 will be available for preorder at your favorite comic shop in April, with a slated release in June 2022. Check it out on digital platforms like Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
