The Boondock Saints have launched into comics on Apple’s new iPad via the new digital comics platform called ComicStore.
Troy Duffy’s original Boondock Saints film is one of the most successful independent movies of all time, with a fiercely loyal and devoted fan base. Now, on the heels of the recent theatrical release of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, comes The Boondock Saints: The Lost Gig. Acting as a primer to the highly anticipated debut comic series, The Boondock Saints: In Nomine Patris, ‘The Lost Gig’ is destined to thrill both Boondock Saints and comic book fans alike.
Written by Boondock Saints creator/writer/director Troy Duffy and comic scribe J.B. Love, (with art and cover by Toby Cypress) The Lost Gig is a brand new story that ties directly into the first Boondock Saints film. The Lost Gig features fan favorite character Rocco along with the McManus Brothers as they take on a group of drug dealers, right before their famous encounter with Vincenzo.
Join the McManus Brothers and Rocco as they wreak havoc on a whole new group of evil men, complete with the action, humor and banter that Boondock Saints fans have come to expect from the beloved characters.
Fleshing out this special one shot is an exclusive interview with Troy Duffy about the saints in comic form, sketches and behind the scenes art from Toby Cypress, as well as an exclusive sneak-peek of May’s The Boondock Saints: In Nomine Patris, produced by InnFusion and published by 12-Gauge Comics.
The Lost Gig is also available in print exclusively through The Boondock Saints Web Store and can be pre-ordered now. The first 1000 pre-orders will be signed by Troy Duffy. The printed edition ships at the end of this month.
