Description
The sixth Dynamite collection of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys is here, with The Boys, Vol. 6: Self-Preservation Society 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. And in the origin tales of Mother's Milk, the Frenchman and the Female, Hughie learns of the strange paths by which this disparate trio came to join The Boys. From tragedy in Harlem to the slaughter on the Brooklyn Bridge, from the festival of Les Saints De Haw-Haw to the horror lurking under Tokyo, this is a journey of discovery like no other - with only the flickering lamp of insanity to light the way. The Boys, Vol. 6: Self-Preservation Society collects issues 31-38 of the New York Times Best-Selling series by Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson and Judge Dredd co-creator, Carlos Ezquerra, and features all of the covers by Robertson.



About the Author
A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include "Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys". Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including "Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory", and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, "Stitched", which Avatar Press continued as an ongoing series.

Beginning his career in comic books as a freelance artist in 1990, David Lapham founded El Capitan Books in 1995 exclusively to publish his Eisner Award-winning crime comic book series, "Stray Bullets". In recent years, he has worked as a writer for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW Publishing, Dark Horse, and finally Avatar Press, on three "Crossed" projects ("Family Values", "Crossed 3D", "Badlands", and "Psychopath"), "Ferals", and "Caligula".

Simon Spurrier, a British author of comic books and novels, first began writing professionally in 2001. He contributed extensively to the library of respected UK publisher 2000 AD, including their flagship comic book series "Judge Dredd, Harry Kipling, Lobster Random, and The Simping Detective". He also wrote several novels set in the 2000 AD and Warhammer 40,000 story continuities. With the debut of his creator-owned series "Gutsville" in 2007, Spurrier began to work in the American comic book market, predominantly on such Marvel Comics properties as "Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider, and X-Men". In 2011, Spurrier launched a successful web comic through Avatar Press, "Crossed: Wish You Were Here", which presents his take on the on the popular horror franchise (CrossedComic.com).



Robertson is the co-creator (with Warren Ellis) and artist for the acclaimed Transmetropolitan monthly series for DC's Vertigo imprint.
