The Boys Gets 2XLP from Mondo

Mondo Music and Madison Gate Records have announced they’ll be releasing the vinyl record of the original soundtrack to Amazon‘s The Boys. The soundtrack is by Christopher Lennertz. The vinyl goes on sale at noon on Wednesday.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name, The Boys tackles our modern obsession with superheroes in media with a biting satire of modern politics and the abuse of power from a fictional League of Heroes who may need to be taken down a peg. Christopher Lennertz has composed a blistering, propulsive score for the darkly comedic series that adeptly parodies the musical landscape of propoganda, all while being a terrific soundtrack to the ensuing action drama that unfolds when the “Supes” collide with the titular anti-heroes tasked with being their checks and balances.

The album feature osriginal artwork by Jack Hughes, liner notes by composer Christopher Lennertz, series creators Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and showrunner Eric Kripke, and pressed on 2X 180 Gram “Compound V” colored vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl).

They also are offering free vinyl shipping domestically with a flat $10 fee for international. That runs until 11:59 PM on Wednesday.

NYCC 2019: Amazon Prime Video Brings The Expanse

Amazon‘s Prime Video Original The Expanse experience will bring New York Comic Con-goers and fans on an interstellar experience during NYCC to celebrate the show’s new home at Amazon Prime Video and the premiere of its fourth season.

Upon arrival, fans will transform into fearless explorers as they join the crew of the show’s Rocinante spaceship. Attendees will step aboard the Hollywood-level spacecraft to journey to the upcoming season’s distant new setting. Guests will star in their own recreations of the Season 4 artwork, as they dramatically alight to take their first steps on New Terra – or Ilus, depending on your allegiance – in a highly sharable photo booth experience.

The show’s far-away journey becomes reality at NYCC 2019 courtesy of Prime Video. As our rookie adventurers line up and embark, The Expanse ambassadors instruct them on what to expect inside the ship, briefing these brave explorers on their one-way mission to boldly step out into the unknown. Amidst the authentic props and flickering screens, an array of Easter eggs, show references, and Snapchat-enabled Belter tattoos draw everyone deeper into The Expanse’s distinctive universe.

Cartoonists Against Amazon Call for Comic Festivals to stop Accepting Sponsorships by comiXology

A group of artists, writers, publishers, volunteers, and others have posted an open letter to Medium calling on comic festivals to stop accepting sponsorship money from comiXology.

ComiXology is the digital comic platform owned by Amazon and the group is concerned over numerous issues regarding that parent company.

Listed as to reasons why sponsorships should be rejected include Amazon’s labor abuses and the company’s hosting of Palantir the company that provides ICE with information to use in the arrest of undocumented individuals as well as surveillance against unions.

The group is calling for the comic community to “consider alternate sources of funding” and for conventions to make a “public statement announcing their decision” regarding future commitments.

Further mentioned is the singling out of CXC and Thought Bubble to sever ties, a public pledge to not accept further partnerships and transparency regarding sponsorships and money allocation.

Signing the letter are Aaron Renier, ABO Comix, Aim Ren Beland, Alex Degen, Alex Hoffman, Alex Nall, Ann Xu, Becca Tobin, Birdcage Bottom Books, Cathy G. Johnson, Chris Kuzma, Cleopatria Peterson, Colleen Tighe, Conor Stechschulte, Courtney Menard, David Ziggy Greene, Dean Sudarsky, Dresden Douglas, Eleanor Davis, Eli Valley, Elisha Lim, Entropy Editions, Ethan Heitner, Evan Dahm, Festival Workers Association, Flynn Nicholls, Frankie Johnson, Garrett Young, Gianluca Costantini, Gina Wynbrandt, Gloria Rivera, Ilan Manouach, Io Ascarium, Jack Hayden, Jackie Roche, Jade Armstrong, Jen Wang, Jesse Jacobs, Jesse DeNobrega, Jessica Campbell, Jillian Tamaki, Jonathan Dyck, Jordan Crane, J.T.

The Boys Gets an Official Trailer

Amazon has released an official trailer to The Boys based off of the comic series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

Supes have been committing atrocities, which keep getting swept under the rug because they are revered by the adoring public. Billy Butcher recruits The Boys who have all been wronged by The Seven, the world’s most notorious superheroes, to bring them down and stop the corruption. The Boys is a revenge story where the nobodies take on the somebodies.

The show debuts on Amazon Prime July 26.

The Boys Go Unscensored with “Spank”

Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson‘s comic series, The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and their formiddable Vought backing.

The Boys debuts on Amazon Prime July 26, 2019.
