Seeing as how I’m just a few days behind on this post, I’m sure most of the blogosphere and the Intar-webs are already lit up talking about the cover to Dynamite Entertainment’s Herogasm mini-series.  The series spins out of Garth Ennis’ The Boys series, that takes a rather in your face approach to the superhero genre.  Fans of The Boys will be happy to note that Garth is writing this mini, with John McCrea providing the art.

“Garth has a few special surprises for The Boys planned for the back-half of his story and this mini is the first,” explained Dynamite Associate Editor Joe Rybandt. “While Darick works on the main series, we’re especially pleased that we were able to reunite Garth and John McCrea for this mini which will shock even the most hardcore Boys fan. Guaranteed.”

Here’s how Dynamite Entertainment describes the series

An evil so profound it threatens all mankind… the mightiest heroes on the planet uniting to defend us all… a secret crisis of such utter finality that a countdown to civil or infinite war seems unavoidable… but have you ever wondered what really happens during Crossovers? The Seven, Payback, Teenage Kix, Fantastico and every other supe on Earth team up for an annual event like no other… and where the supes go, can a certain “five complications and a dog” be far behind? Vought-American prepare to make their move, in a story that will change the world of the Boys forever: Herogasm #1.

    Well im gonna read it, maybe we can get too see some of the supervillains next…though in The Boys universe having Supervillains is superfluous at best.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
