With the enormous success of the Amazon Prime Video show streaming now, it only makes sense to have a few diabolical collectibles on hand featuring Butcher and his gang. Dynamite is releasing an assortment of goodies for old and new fans of The Boys just in time for the holidays.
Since the show’s debut, the omnibus editions of the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson series have been selling out. The publisher is now reprinting them to make sure everyone who needs a volume can grab one. The first three volume art covers are available signed and remarked by Robertson, while the photo editions will be available signed by Ennis.
The fifth volume will also be timed perfectly with your holiday shopping schedule. In this installment the plot comes to a head as the main story reveals the backstory of The Boys as an organization and teases upcoming conflicts. There is also an essential origin story of Billy Butcher in his spinoff miniseries Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker, by Ennis, Robertson, John McCrea, Russ Braun, and Keith Burns. Fans can select a Frenchie cover or a photo cover of The Female.
As for collectibles, start with two 7-card sets of trading cards. The first features Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother’s Milk, Frenchie, the Female, The Legend, and Billy’s trusty bulldog Terror. Every Butcher card will be signed by Ennis.
The second set will feature The Seven with cards spotlighting Homelander, Starlite, A-Train, and two connecting cards depicting the entire team. Artist and co-creator Robertson will be signing all of the primary Homelander cards. Each set comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity.
The next collectible on the list is a set of enamel pins. In addition to a standalone pin reproducing the iconic logo, a five-piece set of pins will display the core members of The Boys.
If Homelander is your guy, check out the new limited edition two-dollar bill with his smug face plastered over it. Created using a revolutionary, high-definition coloring process and Robertson’s artwork, the bill is authentic U.S. legal tender. Each bill comes with a full-color certificate of authenticity and is showcased in a two-sided display folio in fresh, crisp, uncirculated condition.
For more collectible money, Dynamite is continuing their line of collectible coins with four genuine John F. Kennedy Half-Dollars sporting Robertson’s hallmark character designs. These colorized pieces are additionally plated in 24-karat gold to further enhance the artwork. The four coins will feature fan-favorites like Butcher, Hughie, Homelander, and Starlite.
“The Boys has far exceeded the expectations we had back in 2006 when we picked up this daring, controversial title as a young publisher,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “Garth and Darick went on to a colossal achievement of a 90-issue run, practically unheard of in independent comics. The Prime Video show has allowed this inventive take on the superhero genre to reach a whole new audience, and these fun collectibles are the perfect way to engage with all the new fans!”
The Boys trading cards, enamel pins, two-dollar bill, and collectible coins will be available for preorder in August and September, and are slated for release in October and November. Order ahead with your favorite comic shop or head to Dynamite’s website for more merchandise and comics featuring both teams.
