This coming November, it’s an end of an era as The Boys concludes its historic run. The Boys has been one of the most critically acclaimed and controversial books on the shelves by writer Garth Ennis. He always intended for the series to be finite and issue #72 is his final statement on The Boys, containing 24 pages of story, 5 pin-up pages of brand-new art as well as a complete cover gallery!!

“Seventy-two issues plus three minis adds up to ninety issues, making this a very busy six years – more than six years, of course, because we very nearly didn’t make it,” says writer Garth Ennis. “But all’s well that ends well. I finished #72 well over a year before it’s due to see print, and I’ve been missing Butcher and Hughie ever since.Goodbye, Boys. I doubt we’ll see your like again.”

“The end of The Boys with this issue ends a chapter in my career I will always look back upon as a significant challenge,” adds artist Darick Robertson. “I am proud of the work I’ve done on the book and will miss it.”

The Boys will be missed. The good news is it’s a great ending with a complete story, and is going out on top,” states Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. “Garth and Darick created the series with characters and stories that can never be replicated. I want to thank Garth and Darick for their faith in us, and look forward to future series with both creators. This is a series whose legacy will live on as trade paperbacks. I also want to thank DC Entertainment, especially Paul (Levitz), Jim (Lee), Dan (DiDio) and Hank (Kanalz), and many more – who helped make the transition as smooth as possible and allowed fans to continue to enjoy one of the best comics in the market. And, most importantly, thank you to the fans and the retailers who supported the series throughout. The Boys has been a fun ride.”
