The Boys at Dynamite

Two weeks ago, the news broke that The Boys was cancelled by then-current publisher DC Comics. Now, Heidi has the news: their new publisher will be Dynamite Entertainment. That’s a really quick turnaround, and it bodes well for seeing more issues sooner rather than later.

And to think, if DC hadn’t axed the book, I never would have bothered checking it out, and I wouldn’t be looking forward to its return.

Newsarama confirms that the cover price will stay $2.99, which is good news.

Update: Heidi interviews Garth Ennis, accompanied by art samples from the still-to-be-published issue #7.

    Glad to hear this. Hope the haters who dont even read it dont lose to much sleep over it.

    It’s quick but not as quick as it seems. The book was internally cancelled over a month ago and there were discussions before that.

    I guess I must have missed the post where you came around to the book? I’m glad you did… it doesn’t seem like something you’d typically dig. I loved it – it’s (gleefully) nasty, but there’s also a human core that is missing from a lot of other shock-for-shock’s-sake books. I’ll follow it, that’s for sure.

    At the time of the last posting, I hadn’t read the series yet — and once I did, I didn’t have much to say about it. I’m curious to see how it relaunches.

    […] talking about The Boys–a book I’m not terribly interested in, although I did find the hullaballoo entertaining–the interview is still interesting to me, if only to see what Ennis sounds like, […]
