If you have been binging The Boys on Amazon Prime Video or you have been itching to read the series before diving into the show, Dynamite Comics’ omnibus paperbacks are the perfect companion pieces. In The Boys Omnibus Vol 3, fans will find 384 pages of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s hit satirical series, specifically the original volumes 5 and 6 and a story that tests just how good our team of anti-heroes really is at their job of keeping the Supes in check.
When there is an evil so profound that it threatens all of mankind, the various super teams come together to defend the planet. Or at least that is what humanity thinks. But what happens behind closed doors during one of their epic superhero crossovers? The Seven, Payback, Teenage Kix, Fantastico, and every other powered bunch on Earth band together for an annual event like no other, and you can guarantee that Butcher and his crew are right there keeping track of their every movement.
Unfortunately Butcher, Mother’s Milk, Frenchie, Hughie, and the Female might be getting a bit of Payback, which happens to be the name of a super team of unimaginable power, second only to the Seven. This group includes Soldier Boy, Mind-Droid, Swatto, the Crimson Countess, and the Nazi juggernaut known as Stormfront. Will our Boys come out unscathed on the other side or will this team be more than they can handle?
The Boys Omnibus Vol 3 is set to release on Wednesday, July 31. To purchase your copy of the trade paperback as well as previous collected volumes of the series, head to Dynamite’s website. Watch the adaptation starring Karl Urban as Butcher and Jack Quaid as Hughie, currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
