Publisher's Summary

For the first time ever in audio! GraphicAudio and Dynamite Comics are proud to present The Boys, produced with a full cast of actors, immersive sound effects, and cinematic music. 

This is going to hurt! 

In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone has to make sure the "supes" don't get out of line. And someone will! 

Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: a CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth - superpower! 

Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them - sometimes - need to be taken out of the picture. That's when you call in The Boys! 

Fourteen issues adapted to GraphicAudio containing The Name of the Game, Cherry, Get Some, and Glorious Five-Year Plan. Joseph Rybandt, executive editor of Dynamite and editor of The Boys, says, “While I did not grow up anywhere near the Golden Age of Radio, I have loved the medium of radio and audio dramas almost my entire life. Podcasts make my commute bearable to this day. To have such an important and powerful piece of graphic fiction adapted into a series of audio dramas? Well, it’s perfect, innit?”

So-So Adaptation

I read the original comics. There were some cool dream sequences and flashbacks in the comic that contain lots of character depth and humor. This adaptation cut these sequences out. Bad decision, Graphic Audio.

A great listen if you enjoy the Amazon adaptation

Loved the story and performance, some of the accents where too exaggerated for my liking

More gritty than the series

Loved it. Definitely worth a listen, deeper insight into the characters as you would expect. On to the next one :-)
