Series written by Garth Ennis that was was originally published by Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment.
The series is set between 2006–2008. in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series' universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "The Boys", is charged with monitoring the superhero community.
The series was abruptly cancelled with #6. Ennis later explained that this was because DC Comics (of whom Wildstorm was an imprint before it was disbanded) were uneasy with the anti-superhero tone of the work. Four months after cancellation the series was picked up by Dynamite Entertainment with #7 and ran until #72.
