The Boys Omnibus Vol. 3 Hits Stores
The Boys has lit Amazon Prime on fire. With a tone that matches the comic’s irreverent mood. Perhaps my favorite bit of advertising came in an Honest Trailers video where the narrator of the video said something along the lines of, “Holy S#!t! Did Karl Urban just kill that guy with a baby laser?” It’s enough to make someone want to sign up for Amazon Prime. It also looks like Dynamite has planned their release schedule with shrewd calculation.
The third Omnibus for The Boys collects the fifth and sixth volumes. If you want to see the source material for the TV series, this is the best way to do so. For any TV Series, I always recommend checking out the source material.

Dynamite’s new compilation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s hit series The Boys continues with Volume 3, which includes both of the original volumes 5 & 6.
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 superhero on Earth team up for an annual event like no other – and where the superheroes go, can a certain “five complications and a dog” be far behind? But as the fun and games begin, it seems our heroes have set their sights on bigger game than usual.
You can only maim and murder so many superheroes before someone decides to do something about it, and in The Boys’ case that means Payback – a superteam of unimaginable power, second only to the mighty Seven. Pulping teenage supes is one thing, but how will our heroes fare against Soldier Boy, Mind-Droid, Swatto, the Crimson Countess, and the Nazi juggernaut known as Stormfront? Blood flies and bones shatter, as Butcher and company meet fire with fire.
