THE BOYS LANDS @ DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

Newsarama has learned that Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys will return to print shortly, this time, under the Dynamite Entertainment banner.

According to sources, Ennis and Robertson were contacted by many publishers when the news broke that their creator-owned series would no longer be published by Wildstorm, and at the end of the day, the best deal was struck with Dynamite. DC Comics, of which Wildstorm is an imprint, has apparently released the property to the creators, which will allow them to take it to the new home. Finally, Robertson, while exclusive to DC Comics, has already said that his contract allows him to pursue creator-owned work, which will include The Boys at its new home.

When reached for comment, Dynamite's Nick Barrucci told Newsarama:

"The Boys are at Dynamite. We are putting together our plans, and will give more information as soon as possible. In addition to Garth and Darick, I would like to thank DC Comics and everyone at Wildstorm Comics who helped to make the transition a smooth one for Garth and Darick. I also want to thank the fans who so vocally made their support known over the last few weeks and I ask them to stay tuned for news on the continuation. I promise it will be worth the wait, as Garth and Darick continue to deliver their vision of The Boys."

Judging from the latest sales numbers, after the move and if its DC numbers hold relatively steady, The Boys will be one of Dynamite's best-selling titles, as December's issue #6, Wildstorm's final issue, sold an estimated 27,000 copies, which is in the same ballpark as Dynamite's Red Sonja. Ennis and Robertson have said that they plan for the series to run roughly 60 issues - approximately five years.

No word was given on when Dynamite expects to resume publication of the series, or release the first trade paperback, which had already been solicited by Wildstorm. Dynamite did confirm for Newsarama that it will keep the cover price of The Boys at $2.99.

its still listed up to issue 10 at wildstorm/DC.

Boys could be the title that really makes DE shine. They need to move away from so many franchise titles.

Good news! If there's a nicer guy in comics than Darick Robertson, I don't know who it is.

Same here - cancellation helped me find this book...

I also don't currently buy any Dynamite titles either so this will get me looking at their other stuff...and probably buying it. Meaning Dynamite draw in some new customers.

And hopefully the creators have inked a good deal with Dynamite.

Win - win - win.

this is great hopefully now the price stays at 2.99 and who knows maybe they will go way over broad on the content. Why not, its immature humor at its best. The market needs at least one book that pokes fun at everything. Plus, I would like to see what they will do with the covers.

I doubt DE will sell it at 4 bucks an issue. Least I hope they don't.

Where do you get that from?

The majority of Dynamite's books are $2.99.
