The Boys are Coming to Amazon Prime

Right now comics are becoming a big business with great movies such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as some awesome Netflix series. There are other great shows that have been adapated for the big and small screen such as Umbrella Academy, The Walking Dead and Preacher. Now the folks over at Amazon are giving us the Garth Ennis book entitled The Boys.

For those that are unfamiliar with this book the Boys takes the normal superhero tropes and turns it on its head. It deals with what if super powered heroes existed and they were corrupted by fame and fortune just like the celebrities that we have today. This lead to the creation of an elite series of CIA agents that also have super powers. This group is called “The Boys” and they handle the problems that come up that no one else can or will handle. 

This series was created by Garth Ennis, where he says in his own words that it “out-Preacher Preacher” and we have seen how nuts that series has gotten on AMC! All in all I am excited for this show and I cannot wait to see what they’ll do with it and if it will stay true to the books or not. So are you excited for this series?
