Official Press Release
It's official!Â The BOONDOCK SAINTS make the move to comics this May, in the two issue limited series "IN NOMINE PATRIS" from 12-Gauge Comics.
TROY DUFFY's original BOONDOCK SAINTS film is one of the most successful independent movies of all time, with a fiercely loyal and devoted fan base. Now, on the heels of the recent theatrical release of THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II: ALL SAINTS DAY, this new limited series marks the first official story to take place outside of the cult-hit films.Â Already tagged as both "Certified Cool" and a "Staff Pick" by Diamond Comic Distributors, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: IN NOMINE PATRIS is destined to take the comic book marketplace by storm.
Written by BOONDOCK SAINTS creator/writer/director TROY DUFFY and comic scribe J.B. LOVE, (with art by newcomer GUUS FLOOR and covers by CHRIS BRUNNER) "In Nomine Patris" is the perfect companion to the recent movie (coming to DVD and BLU-RAY March 9th). Conceived as a "deleted and extended sequence", the comics expand on the story and characters in ALL SAINTS DAY and delve deeper into the secret origin of the "Original Saint", IL DUCE.
Join the McMANUS BROTHERS as they uncover the full extent of their family's legacy of violence, leaving a path of vengeance in their wake!Â
This is just the beginning of the Boondock Saints in comics! THE SAINTS ARE COMING!
