THE BOYS: This is Going to Hurt Kickstarter is LIVE!
They’ve crushed comics, they’ve conquered streaming, and now, The Boys will dominate the dinner table in an all-new tabletop game! The Boys: This is Going to Hurt finds you and your closest friends trying to save the world from The Homelander… and each other! The Boys, created by Eisner Award-winning writer Garth Ennis and legendary artist Darick Robertson, has never been more popular. Now, for the first time ever, fans of the series will be in control of all the over-the-top action!
In The Boys: This is Going to Hurt, players take on the role of newly activated CIA agents, unfairly tasked with saving the planet from the greatest threat it has ever known, the most powerful and dangerous superhero of all: The Homelander. In their quest to stop him, players will build an army from almost every character found in the books. Players will have to buy, blackmail, battle, power up with Compound-V, and resourcefully use an assortment of unique items from the comics.
A word from Garth Ennis: “I’m delighted that so many of you have enjoyed The Boys comic series, and the new spinoff series, Dear Becky, that’s running right now. Very keen on seeing The Boys board game, which seems to me the next big step for The Boys to take. Looking forward to it.”
