The Boys Omnibus reprints have sold more than 110,000 copies to date for volumes 1 through 4, and with the unfilled orders combined with the upcoming volume 5 release, 150,000 copies are expected to ship, making it hard for Dynamite to keep the wildly popular books in stock. The interest in the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson series has only increased since the Amazon Prime Video series starring Karl Urban as Billy Butcher debuted in July.
“At the moment The Boys TV show is hitting peak exposure and has emerged as Prime’s top show, Dynamite has smartly repackaged our work in to these wonderful new omnibuses, full of extra material and sketches from the creation of the book all the way back to 2006,” said artist and co-creator Robertson. “They are a perfect way to complete your library or experience the comics that inspired the biggest show on streaming television.”
Dynamite is set to release the sixth and final omnibus in January 2020. It will be available two ways: an art cover by Robertson depicting the full team and a special Prime Video cover featuring Frenchie (Tomer Kapon). This volume recollects Volume 11: Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men and Volume 12: The Bloody Doors Off. The installment brings the whole series to a satisfying conclusion.
If you are still on the fence about purchasing the omnibuses, the publisher is also releasing a low cost way to check out the series with the Dynamite Dollar Edition of the first issue.
Fans can preorder the first three photo cover omnibuses signed by Ennis directly on Dynamite’s website. For the final The Boys Omnibus and the dollar edition, preorder with your local comic shop this month. The books are slated to release in December.
