Spawned from the twisted minds of comic book writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson, The Boys (published by Wildstorm/Dynamite) offered an irreverent look at a squad of anti-superhero vigilantes. The characters’ mad-dog tactics keep the corrupt caped celebrities in line should they take advantage of their juiced-up paranormal powers. The initial publishing run covered a total of 72 issues released between 2006 and 2012.
Now, after two insane live-action seasons of The Boys on Amazon Prime, a new hyper-violent animated spinoff series set in the same brutal world is almost here. The Boys: Diabolical is erupting this week, and we’ve got the low-down on all its loud and lewd adventures.
So while you wait for The Boys Season 3 to leap onto the streaming service starting on June 3, this bloody-good animation adaptation will serve as a profanity-laced appetizer for more “supes” slaying by Billy Butcher and his special gang of sadistic enforcers. Let’s dive into the details!
