If you are a fan of Garth Ennis' The Boys series published by Dynamite Entertainment, and you cannot get enough of the series; then you will be happy to hear that the book will be getting an offshoot six issue mini starting this August. The series, which will be penned by Ennis and penciled by John McCrea ( Herogasm) will revolve around the popular Boys character Hughie and will be titled The Boys: Highland Laddie. While I personally am not a fan of Ennis' Herogasm series, I do enjoy The Boys' realist perspective on what life would be like if superheroes did in fact exist in our world. It is certainly a series that has pushed the envelope and definitely worth a look for mature readers. This new mini series, Highland Laddie, seems especially interesting since the comic will be dealing with the life and times of Hughie, one of the more popular members of The Boys.
"Highland Laddie sees everyone's favorite Scotsman in his own series, with art by Herogasm's John McCrea," says writer Garth Ennis. "All Hughie wants is a break, and thinks the perfect place to get one is back home- in Auchterladle, the little Scottish seaside town where he grew up. But friends and family have their own ways of wearing a man down, and with certain mysterious strangers in town, Hughie's already fragile psyche is in for another battering."
Dynamite Entertainment was kind enough to send us a look at the cover as well as four pages of preview art from the upcoming title which we have included below. Are you reading The Boys? Will you be picking up Hughie's mini series this August?
