May will be a big month for collectors of The Boys.
On Monday, Dynamite announced two upcoming Boys products — the second volume of The Boys Oversized Omnibus Volume 2 and The Boys: Selected Scripts by Garth Ennis Volume One. The latter prints “seven standout scripts” curated by Ennis. The seven (heh) include The Boys issues #1, 21, 38, 47, 53, 65, Butcher Baker Candlestickmaker #5, and Dear Becky #1. Each issue is presented with the full script by Ennis, followed by the final artwork by artists Darick Robertson, Russ Braun, Keith Burns, and John McCrea. The volume runs just short of 200 pages, offering new insights into how the series came together and became the final, released comic.
The Boys Oversized Omnibus Volume Two, meanwhile, collects The Boys #31-47, The Boys: Herogasm #1-6, The Boys: Highland Laddie #1-6. Bonus material includes a complete cover gallery, selected script pages, introductions, and more. A timely release as the upcoming season of The Boys television series will “tackle” Herogasm.
The Boys Oversized Omibus and The Boys: Selected Scripts by Garth Ennis Volume One and The Boys Oversized Omnibus Volume Two are set for release in May.
