The Boys is an American creator-owned comic book series, written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. It was originally published by Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment
The series is set in a contemporary world very much similar to real one, with one notable exception: a number of people have some form of superpower. The series follows a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "the Boys", whose job it is to keep watch on superheroes and, if necessary, intimidate or kill them.
Ennis has said that the series will "out-Preacher Preacher" , presumably referring to the extreme violence and sexuality that were that series' hallmark. He has also stated that he expects the series to last for approximately 60 issues.
