Unbeknownst to his own people, Victory has a personal connection to the Empire, and will stop at nothing to ensure the demise of its leader, the ancient fear-god Blackmass!Captain Victory Volume 1 features six stories of the Tiger’s greatest crew members as they navigate the cosmos’ worst threats. Can they survive or will they fall to the shadows?

WE FOUND EACH OTHER, BILLY.
In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line. And someone will. Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother’s Milk, The Frenchman and The Female are The Boys: a CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most lethal force on Earth- superpower. Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them- sometimes- need to be taken out of the picture.

That’s when you call in The Boys.

He could have been a very different man. Billy Butcher, leader of The Boys, once had a chance at another life entirely- when the love of a good woman pulled him aside from his dreadful path of violence and despair. This is the story of Billy and Becky, told by the man himself: from the backstreets of London’s East End to the carnage of the Falklands War, from the heights of love to the depths of tragedy. And when he’s done, he’ll be ready… to finish things once and for all.

This volume collects issues 1-6 of the hit mini-series, The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and features all of the covers by Darick Robertson.
