The Boondock Saints Now on comiXology!
ComiXology, the cloud-based digital comics platform, announced that the comic book series based on Troy Duffy’s cult-hit The Boondock Saints and published by 12-Gauge Comics is now available across comiXology’s entire platform. The digital comic debut coincides with the nationwide Blu-Ray release of The Boondock Saints II: Director’s Cut which came out on October 1st.
The franchise continues to thrive worldwide in popularity each year with an ever-growing fan base, so extending the brand into the world of graphic novels was the next logical step. Fully intertwined with the film series and written by The Boondock Saints creator/writer/director Troy Duffy and comic scribe J.B. Love, the comics follow the further adventures of the MacManus Brothers and their mysterious father and “Original Saint,” Il Duce.
With stunning art by Toby Cypress, Guus Floor, and Chris Brunne, the comics have been met with universal praise by the fans, and 12-Gauge publisher Keven Gardner is hoping that its availability on comiXology will take the series to a wider audience than ever before.
Comics already available include The Lost Gig, starring the beloved character Rocco and the MacManus brothers in a lost scene from the original The Boondock Saints film, as well as the 6-issue In Nomine Patris saga, which is the perfect companion to The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day film. Conceived as a “deleted and extended sequence,” the comic series expands on the story and characters from the sequel and delves deeper into the secret origin of Il Duce.
With over 40,000 comics and graphic novels from more than 75 publishers, comiXology offers the widest selection of English language digital comics in the world. ComiXology’s availability across the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 and the Web makes it the best digital platform for newly interested, current and lapsed comic and graphic novel fans worldwide.
