Official Press Release
The first-ever spin-off mini-series from Dynamite and The Boys is coming your way in May – get ready for your first-ever Herogasm
Exploding from the pages of The Boys, Herogasm features the pairing of Garth Ennis with Hitman artist John McCrea and covers by Boys artist and co-creator Darick Robertson!
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.
“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.”
About the series, Ennis stated, “What really happens during crossovers? What do superheroes do when nobody’s looking? And what does the Vice-President of the United States have to do with any of this?”
Herogasm will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will make you…. well, this Garth Ennis and The Boys we’re talking about, so you know what to expect. Or at least you think you do.
The Boys: Herogasm ain’t just breathin’ heavy, it’s coming at you this May from Dynamite. And be sure to ask your local retailer about our incentive covers so that you can have multiple Herogasms.
