October 1, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite is proud to announce that the omnibus reprints of The Boys have sold over 110,000 copies to date in 2019 for Volumes 1 through 4, and with current unfilled orders of these volumes, plus the upcoming Volume 5 release, will ship in excess of 150,000 copies since the first volume's initial release in March! The final volume will be released in January 2020.
Despite continuing to go back to press, and specifically doing so in North America, Dynamite has been fighting to keep up with demand from retailers and fans interested in diving into the "blueprint" after loving the Prime Video adaptation. This overwhelming interest and support is incredibly meaningful to the publisher and creators of the legendary 90-issue series.
"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 into these wonderful new Omnibuses, full of extra material and sketches from the creation of the book all the way back to 2006," said Darick Robertson, artist and co-creator. "They are a perfect way to complete your library or experience the comics that inspired the biggest show on streaming television."
Advance solicited for a January 2020 release, the sixth and final omnibus is available in two variations. An art cover by Darick Robertson depicts the full team, after each previous volume spotlighted one member of the five person core team. The special Prime Video photo cover features Frenchie, as brilliantly portrayed in the show by actor Tomer Kapon.
Underneath the covers, this volume recollects the previous final two volumes Volume 11: Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men and Volume 12: The Bloody Doors Off. This last chunk of issues concludes the long brewing plotlines and conspiracies surround Vought, Homelander, Billy Butcher and more! How do Frenchie and the Female factor in? What secret does Mother's Milk discover to flip everything on its head? And can there be a happy ending for Wee Hugie and Starlight? These issues offer a satisfying conclusion to 80 issues of build-up and exploration of this depraved world by visionary writer Garth Ennis, and provide a peek into where the show could go next, or diverge!
For those still deciding whether they want to pick up the first omnibus, or all six, Dynamite is releasing an easy and ideal way to try out the series for a low cost with the Dynamite Dollar Edition of the very first issue. This is the perfect jumping-on point for those who've binged the show and are craving more Boys action. Also including is promotional material showcasing all of Dynamite's wide range of The Boys publications and merchandise. It's also a great way to get friends and family into the series with an inexpensive gift.
Additionally available to preorder now from Dynamite are editions of the first three photo cover omnibuses signed by writer and co-creator Garth Ennis. Volumes one, two and three are available directly from Dynamite here.
The final The Boys Omnibus, Dollar Edition and Signed Photo Covers are solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ October 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December 2019. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder with their local comic book retailers.
