In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky, The Boys make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line! Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson proudly present four of their most explosive storylines, collected in a gorgeous hardcover package, complete with a slipcover! In “Proper Preparation and Planning,” team leader Billy Butcher re-examines The Boys’ first encounter with their superhuman opponents, while handling disquiet among the ranks and an old enemy who’s come into his own. In “Barbary Coast,” down-on-his-luck everyman Hughie uncovers the grisly truth behind the first superhumans to take action in World War II. In “The Big Ride,” The Boys face the powerful and perverse threats, Jack from Jupiter and Doctor Peculiar. And in “Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker,” the true story of The Boys’ mysterious leader is told at last! 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, the most violent man in comics reveals the terrible nature of the forces that drive him. Collects eighteen chapters from The Boys’ comic book saga, including issues #48-59 plus the complete six-issue spin-off series, Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker. Bonus material includes an extensive cover gallery, featuring gorgeous artwork by Darick Robertson.

WHEN SOMEONE GIVES YOU A WEAPON, SON: YOU USE IT

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. The war is over and the world is saved. The supes have been beaten down so far they’ll never get up again. So why would anyone want one hundred and eighteen metric tons of the only substance on earth that can kill them all stone dead? Bad days start coming thick and fast, as the Boys are caught in the last throes of the battle they were recruited to fight so long ago. Hughie, all on his own and out of luck, finds himself walking down one last bloody trail- and the truth he finds waiting for him at the end of it will be nothing short of shattering.

“If you are a fan of Ennis, you’ll enjoy this book, no doubt. It’s the perfect character for his dark mentality and it looks like it’s going to be one hell of a ride. If you’re a fan of The Shadow, then you’ll be happy to know that the character is in great hands. Ennis obviously loves him as much as we do.” – IGN

“The Shadow is powerful, scary and full of crazy new powers of which most people are probably unaware. And under Garth Ennis’ crafty pen, he is intimidating and interesting, both in and out of costume. I look forward to reading about the evil lurking in the hearts of men, especially if this version of the Shadow is on the case” – NEWSARAMA

“Above all else, Garth Ennis’ new Shadow title is fun.” – BROKEN FRONTIER

“This is a great comic, and you’re going to love it. Ennis is introducing The Shadow for a whole new generation of fans who didn’t know what they missed the first time around. Pick it up……… or HE’LL KNOW!” – GEEKS OF DOOM

Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White come together with other damsels in a new adventure filled with danger and intrigue.   In Damsels, the alluring princesses of classic fairy tales take up arms to save their kingdoms from war.  Rediscover the darkness at the heart of fairy tales and why they’ll be no happily ever after.  Damsels opens with Rapa wishing she had not got out of bed that morning, if she had a bed to get out of that is. The day began badly and has gone rapidly and literally downhill ever since. A series of peculiar and baffling encounters throw obstacle after obstacle into her path, intent it seems on preventing her progress. The thing is, until today she had no idea she was trying to make any progress, toward anything! A collection of hazy memories and bewildering tattoos are all she has to help her figure it all out, and to be honest, she’d just as soon not bother.  Around her, we see the mountain city of Caumont thrown into overdrive by the arrival of Queen Talia and King Aurore of Perrault. The streets are thronged with cheering people, does it matter they aren’t exactly sure why they are cheering, or for whom?
