October 1, Mt. Laurel, NJ: In a very Vought-like move, Dynamite Entertainment is inviting fans to join The Boys by sporting some sweet apparel inspired by the classic Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson epic, now enjoyed by many more thanks to the Prime Video series!
Dynamite is offering two shirt designs, and they're actually a matching set. One reproduces the iconic cover of the first issue, with the titular group looking down at the reader and the initial series tagline "This is Going to Hurt." For the seventh issue, and first initially published by Dynamite, Darick Robertson and colorist Tony Aviña depicted the brutal scene The Boys were actually looking down on. This shirt is accompanied by the matching "We Told You This Was Going to Hurt" tag. These gilded-cotton tee shirts are available in sizes US Small through XXL.
It's (finally) getting cooler up in the Northern Hemisphere, and Dynamite has just the item to keep your head warm in the winter months - a The Boys knit beanie cap! This one-size-fits-all hat is made of cotton and goes for a more simplistic style with just the series logo. Still a great way to show off one's fandom and a perfect match for the shirts!
The Boys fans new and old can stay tuned for more exciting clothing options as Dynamite expands the line in coming months to include socks, caps and more! Dynamite also welcomes fans to share their Boys outfits on social media and tag @dynamitecomics!
“I’m delighted to see The Boys doing so well, especially with a whole new audience that now has a chance to see Butcher, Hughie and the rest of the gang in action," said co-creator and writer Garth Ennis. "And to think we only lasted six months at our first publisher...”
"Apparel can be a tricky category when it comes to comic book properties, but when something breaks out and the fans demand it, you just gotta go for it!," said Nick Barruci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "The Boys is without a doubt one of those cases, and Dynamite is continuing to expand our clothing options for fans with other titles. We can't wait to see fans wearing these at conventions and on social media!"
All of these The Boys apparel 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.
