The Art of The Boys: The Complete Covers by Darick Robertson
In a world where superheroes roam the earth in search of justice for the common man, who brings justice to the superheroes? The Boys do. Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are the badasses that keep the supes in line - protecting mankind from some truly deranged superheroes. Now, for the first time ever, fans can experience the entire collection of fantastically controversial cover art from series artist and co-creator Darick Robertson. This edition also includes all of the exclusive variant covers by legendary guest artists Jim Lee, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, David Lloyd, and John Cassaday. Topped off with a bonus Afterward by producer Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights), the definitive collection of covers fans have been clamoring for has officially arrived - all in one glorious hardcover! Creator Commentary from Darick Robertson: "What's really fun about this book, in my opinion, is to watch the covers unfold like a story in and of itself. I hope that's what you'll get out of it. Ennis had a great imagination for covers and I always looked forward to what he'd suggest next. In the beginning, I was coming up with numerous sketches and ideas to present, but as we went on, the covers became a real collaboration and he always had a good idea. Some of these sketches (sometimes it would take more than one) are presented here so you can see the evolution of the process. Revisiting the world of The Boys by creating a new cover for this project only seemed appropriate, like spending time with some not-so-friendly old friends."
