The Boys Rocks ComiXology Across The World

Louis Falcetti writes; The United States certainly loves to celebrate two choices, Coke and Pepsi, McDonalds and Burger King, Republicans and Democrats and judging from their comiXology chart, Marvel and DC. No love even for The Boys? That's a shame America. The Boys makes chart space in nearly every other country, going as high as […]

Russell Crowe For Billy Butcher In The Boys?

As Adam McKay works away on his screenplay adaptation of The Boys, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's tough-as-nails comics about  a government agency created to police the world's superheroes and villains, he's also thinking about who he'd like to cast if and (hopefully) when he gets around to shooting it. The obvious choice for Wee […]
