The Boys Omnibus Vol. 4

So where are the real superheroes? The warriors for truth and justice, the defenders of the American way, the heroes who fight to make things right and ask for nothing in return? Hughie finds out when he meets the teenage adventurers known as SUPERDUPER… but unknown to the little Scotsman, Butcher has finally learned his secret. A dire scheme is set in motion, and at the vast superhero evangelist festival of BELIEVE, Hughie’s relationship with Annie January – aka Starlight of the Seven – reaches its terrible conclusion.

Next… a special story featuring everyone’s favorite pint-sized Scotsman, Hughie. Mind reeling from cataclysmic events in New York, Wee Hughie heads home to Auchterladle — the semi-idyllic Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together after two years of unimaginable chaos. But our hero’s luck has always been more cloud than silver lining, and the familiar surroundings he craves are not all they might be. Old pals are warped beyond recognition, strangers in town are up to no good, and a figure from Hughie’s recent past has come back to resolve some unfinished business. You can go home again – but whether or not you should is another matter entirely.

The Boys Omnibus Vol. 3

writer: Garth Ennis
artist: Darick Robertson
cover: Darick Robertson
FC | 384 pages | $29.99 | Mature

Dynamite’s new compilation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s hit series The Boys continues with Volume 3, which includes both of the original volumes 5 & 6.

An evil so profound it threatens all mankind! The mightiest heroes on the planet uniting to defend us all! A secret crisis of such utter finality that a countdown to civil or infinite war seems unavoidable! But have you ever wondered what really happens during Crossovers? The Seven, Payback, Teenage Kix, Fantastico, and every other superhero on Earth team up for an annual event like no other – and where the superheroes go, can a certain “five complications and a dog” be far behind? But as the fun and games begin, it seems our heroes have set their sights on bigger game than usual.

You can only maim and murder so many superheroes before someone decides to do something about it, and in The Boys’ case that means Payback – a superteam of unimaginable power, second only to the mighty Seven. Pulping teenage supes is one thing, but how will our heroes fare against Soldier Boy, Mind-Droid, Swatto, the Crimson Countess, and the Nazi juggernaut known as Stormfront? Blood flies and bones shatter, as Butcher and company meet fire with fire.

376 Pages | $29.99 | Mature

An all-new omnibus printing that includes The Boys Volume 3: Good for the Soul & The Boys Volume 4: We Gotta Go Now.

In “Good for the Soul…” Everyone has something to get off their chest: Frenchie and the Female are up to something nasty with the Mafia, Mother’s Milk goes to see his mom, Annie January wants a word with God himself, and Butcher enjoys yet another ghastly tryst with CIA Director Rayner. The Legend, meanwhile, offers to tell Hughie everything he wants to know about The Boys – all Hughie has to do is take a walk with the dead.

In “We Gotta Go Now…” All is not well with mysterious millionaire John Godolkin’s band of misfits. Silver Kincaid, one of the original G-Men, has just committed suicide in the most public and grotesque way imaginable. That’s not good news for Vought-American’s number one franchise, with G-Force, G-Coast, G-Style, G-Wiz, the G-Brits and the G-Nomads all depending on their slice of the G-pie. There’s far too much at stake for anyone to go poking around the G-Mansion now. Who knows what dirty secrets might be waiting down there in the dark?
