The COVID-19 pandemic has curbed so much in the last few months, including two books from Dynamite that had garnered a lot of buzz at their announcements. Now, with the world slowly reopening and comics making a comeback, The Boys: Dear Becky #1 and Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew #1 will finally see the light of day.
Check out the solicits for both below:
THE BOYS: DEAR BECKY #1
Writer: Garth Ennis Art: Russ Braun
Twelve years after the events of The Boys, Hughie finds himself back home in Scotland where he intends to finally marry Annie in the company of friends and family. But the sudden appearance of a peculiar document sends our hero into a tailspin and threatens to bring the events of his nightmarish past crashing down on him in the worst possible way. There was one story about The Boys that Hughie never knew. Now, whether he likes it or not, he’s going to.
NANCY DREW & THE HARDY BOYS: THE DEATH OF NANCY DREW #1
Writer: Anthony Del Col Art: Joe Eisma
Teen detectives Frank and Joe Hardy have investigated many crimes in their lives, but nothing that hits this close to home. Their best friend died mysteriously after taking down a major crime organization. They must put together the clues to uncover the truth about this shocking crime, but the clues lead them to a stunningly unexpected direction!
Written by Ringo-nominated writer Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare, Luke Cage) and with art by Eisner-award winner Joe Eisma (Morning Glories, Riverdale), this gritty and stylish story is a noir that will attract fans of Nancy Drew of all ages.
