'This book will out-PREACHER PREACHER.' - Garth Ennis Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), co-creators of two of the most thought-provoking comics of the last decade, introduce their first original collaboration for a new monthly series: THE BOYS - a dark, twisted look at super powers, super-people, and the men and women who make sure the world's 'heroes' never go too far.

In a U.S.A. uncomfortably like our own, that task falls to The Boys, a government-funded group of operatives dedicated to keeping the 'supes' in line.

You have to be smart. You have to be strong. And you have to hate supes with every ounce of black passion in your heart.
