    Second Printing Alternate Cover ON THE WAY!

    June 19, 2007, Runnemede, NJ
    - DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT announced today that a second printing alternate cover of The Boys #7 will soon be on the way featuring a new, blood-soaked version of the 1-in-4 issue #7 alternate cover by Darick Robertson and colorist Tony Avina! The Boys #7 second printing alternate cover is scheduled for an early July release and will give fans who missed the Dynamite launch of The Boys a chance to check out the most talked about comic of the year. Please note that Copies of the first printing may be available at your local retailer.

    Dynamite stated. "It's great news to welcome Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys to such a strong response, and we're very happy to present this second printing alternate cover as fans have devoured this first Dynamite issue! Retailers and industry professionals have been discussing the issue and our good friend Cliff Biggers had summed up their feelings by saying he wanted to keep #7 on the racks as long as he could. And we're happy to oblige, as keeping The Boys in print is an important goal. We're also near out of the first print of the TPB and keeping our eye towards a new printing in the near future! "

    In The Boys #7, Butcher takes Wee Hughie to meet the Boys' greatest weapon against the Supes: a man called "The Legend." Plus, meet the troubled hero Tek-Knight - a man with a problem so unusual you'll have to read this comic to believe it! Recommended for Mature Readers!

    "[THE BOYS] #7 is particularly delicious, inventing a somewhat new and different problem for a superhero to suffer from. It's great, perverse stuff."
    -- Comic Book Galaxy

    Due to the overwhelming demand and strong praise in the form of reviews and comments from fans both new and old, DYNAMITE requests specialty retailers review and review their orders for issue #8 (MAY07 3337) still available for advance re-order and as well as the upcoming issue #9 (JUN073396) available for initial orders.

    For any fans who may have perhaps been living, as they say, under a rock for the last several months, The Boys was originally published by DC/Wildstorm until being cancelled with issue #6. After much outcry and speculation, the series was announced as being picked up by Dynamite Entertainment -- the new publishers beginning with issue #7, as well as the Trade Paperback collection of the Six DC/Wildstorm Issues. And now you know, the rest of the story…
