Dynamite Entertainment has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of titles arriving in stores this week (Oct 1, 2008).  Take the jump for a look at the last chapter in the current The Boys arc, Army of Darkness #13, Battlestar Galactica: Origins #10, and The Man with No Name: The Good, The Bad, and the Uglier #4.

THE BOYS #23
DIAMOND ORDER CODE: AUG083935
Writer: GARTH ENNIS
Penciller: DARICK ROBERTSON
Covers: DARICK ROBERTSON (50%) AND JOHN CASSADAY (50%)
Colorist: TONY AVIÑA
Genre: Superhero
Rating: Mature

This story is soooooooooooo BIG, that Dynamite, along with creators Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is going to start a series of alternate covers, kicking off with two covers this month by Darick Robertson (and wait until you see who we have lined up in the months to come — such luminaries as Dave (Watchmen) Gibbons, Jim Lee, and . . . . well, we would tell you, but your head might explode if we told you everyone at once, and we want you to come back for the comic!)

They’re outcasts. Renegades. Rogues. Outsiders. They’re the world’s most profitable superheroes. They’re the G-Men.

But all is not well with mysterious millionaire John Godolkin’s band of misfits. Silver Kincaid, one of the original G-Men, has just committed suicide in the most public and grotesque way imaginable. That’s not good news for Vought-American’s number one franchise, with G-Force, G-Coast, G-Style, G-Wiz, the G-Brits and the G-Nomads all depending on their slice of the G-pie. There’s far too much at stake for anyone to go poking around the G-Mansion now. Who knows what dirty secrets might be waiting down there in the dark?

So it’s just too bad that Butcher, Hughie, Mother’s Milk, the Frenchman and the Female have decided to do precisely that. Even it they risk finally biting off much, much more than they can chew…

WE GOTTA GO NOW: A major new storyline, beginning with The Boys #23.

THE BOYS VOLUME THREE TPB
DIAMOND ORDER CODE: AUG083939
ISBN10: 1933305924
ISBN13: 9781933305929

The third Dynamite collection of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s “The Boys” is here!

In “Good For The Soul” (issues 15-18): Hughie visits The Legend, determined to find out more about The Boys- their history, their personalities, and their mysterious hidden agenda. Meanwhile, Annie January (alias Starlight) has her own doubts about membership of The Seven. This storyline also reveals a little more about the other members of the team- beginning with Butcher, and his relationship with CIA director Susan Rayner.

In “I Tell You No Lie, G.I.” (issues 19-22): Wee Hughie sits down with The Legend to get the lowdown on the Boys and their enemies from the very beginning. All will be revealed, or at least that’s what Hughie’s expecting- who started it all, who did what to whom, why the Twin Towers are still up and the Brooklyn Bridge is down. Meanwhile, Butcher and the others meet their sparring partners… and deep down in the bowels of their hovering headquarters, Annie and A-Train discover the Seven’s darkest secret.
Also includes a complete cover gallery! Recommended for Mature Readers.
