News from comicbookresources.com that Simon Pegg has been lovingly recreated by Comic Artsist Darick Robertson for a new series called The Boys, which is being written by Garth Ennis and published by Wildstorm comics.

Here is a short outline of what the series is about:

QUOTE
“The Boys.” Starting in October the monthly series will focus on a world where the government monitors the superhero community and sometimes sends in a team to take them down


Simon is "playing" the part, as it where, of a character called Wee Hughie.

Pictures and Simons reaction can be found here

Thanks for posting about the comic! Not a terrible likeness to him either.

I think that link takes you to the most recent articles.

Try this link instead, and scroll about half way down the page.

Didn't it just?

Two weeks seems like a hell of a long time at the moment. I have this urge to go back and re-read some Preacher volumes while I wait. biggrin.gif

And I'm annoyed I didn't hit up Darick Robertson at Comic-Con now. Fucksticks.

I bought the first issue at Forbidden Planet yesterday (loads left if anyone hasn't got it yet. A mere £2). Not a bad comic at all. Had me laugh out loud a couple of times. Love the additional nods to Simon with the God's Third Leg t-shirt and SotD on the television.

Anyone know when issue 2 will be out in the UK?

Issue 2 has been out over a week in the UK. It's even better than the first.
