The Boys Comic heads to the big screen

Garth Ennis’ superhero comic The Boys set for celluloid

Garth Ennis’ black-ops superhero comic The Boys is set for the big screen.

The series, originally published by DC’s Wildstorm imprint, was cancelled after six issues, because, as Ennis explained, DC found the anti-superhero tone to be too unsettling. It later found a home at Dynamite Entertainment where it continues to be published:

“We’re just huge fans of the book and of Garth Ennis,” explained scribe Manfredi. “It’s very faithful to the original. It has been a really good experience to work on.”
