Garth Ennis comic
All-new printing collecting the first 14 issues of the critically acclaimed series, now heading to live-action on Amazon Prime! This is going to hurt! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone's got to make sure the "supes" don't get out of line. And someone will! Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: A CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth - superpower! Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them - sometimes - need to be taken out of the picture. That's when you call in The Boys! After the opening story arc introducing Hughie to the team (issues 1-6), Dark avenger Tek-Knight and his ex-partner Swingwing are in trouble (issues 7-14). Big trouble. One has lost control of his terrifyingly overactive sex-drive, and the other might just be a murderer. It's up to Hughie and Butcher to work out which is which, in Get Some. Then, in Glorious Five-Year Plan, The Boys travel to Russia - where their corporate opponents are working with the mob, in a super-conspiracy that threatens to spiral lethally out of control. Good thing our heroes have Love Sausage on their side. Featuring some ever-so-slight tweaks the creators have meticulously restored, The Boys Omniobus Volume 1 also features bonus art materials, the script to issue #1 by Garth Ennis, a complete cover gallery, and more!

All-new tales! A free-form band composed of some of the best talent in the medium got together late one night in Vertigo's back room and cooked up the anthology VERTIGO JAM, a great place to experience a riff of Vertigo's ongoing monthly books. The first cut is an 8-page SANDMAN number by Neil Gaiman and Kevin Nowlan that explores some of the nooks and crannies of Dream's kingdom. Other tracks include a HELLBLAZER tale by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon in which Constantine has an encounter with an old flame; a SHADE, THE CHANGING MAN piece in which our hero explores the religious morals and the carcass of a baneful priest, as recorded by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred; a DOOM PATROL tune by Rachel Pollack and Eric Shanower in which the team must contend with a pair of promiscuous spirits who have escaped from their headquarters; an ANIMAL MAN cut by Jamie Delano, Scot Eaton and Mark Pennington in which Buddy Baker and a straight-shooting fowl talk turkey; a haunting SWAMP THING melody about a ghost lost in the plant realm of the Green, composed by Nancy A. Collins, Phil Hester and Kim DeMulder; and the bizarre experimental sounds of KID ETERNITY by Ann Nocenti and Sean Phillips.

The first of Garth Ennis' brutal WWII stories that tell it like it really was. JOHANN'S TIGER is the tale of a German Tiger tank commander and his crew. Retreating from the Russians on the Eastern Front, Johann's only goal is to find the Americans and surrender to them before he and his men get killed.

The Eastern Front, 1943: as the cataclysmic Battle of Kursk looms large, Captain Piotr Piotrowicz and his driver, Natalya ''Ginger'' Pulkhova, prepare their unit for action-- equipped with the worst tanks in the Russian inventory.
