Are you a fan of comics? Do you like The Boondock Saints?
If so then here’s some cool news for all of you fanatics out there just like me.
It has recently come to my attention that 12 Gauge Comics will be releasing a two-part miniseries called Boondock Saints: In Nomini Patris, which will serve as an bonus content from the second movie The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day.
This miniseries will delve us further into the McManus brothers’ past and we’ll learn more about their father Il Duce. A sneak preview is coming to stores this May with the series launching this Summer.
Troy Duffy, who wrote and directed both of these awesome movies, will be co-writing the comic books along with writer J.B. Love, with art by Guus Floor. Love told Newsarama that there will be “a few scenes that you’ll remember from ‘All Saints Day’, but most of the content is new and fills in the blanks in the flashback sequences.”
With the comic In Nomine Patris we have two stories going on simultaneously. We’re ‘cutting’ back and forth between the flashback story of Il Duce — how he earns his reputation and learns to cover his tracks — and a sort of modern day mini-adventure with the Brothers McManus, wherein they take out some contract players working for Yakavetta. Il Duce’s story focuses on he and Louie figuring out how to avenge Noah’s father’s death while saving others from the kind of tragedy the Mob has inflicted on Noah’s family. While this is happening we’re going to let the readers/viewers in on some of the progression of the relationship between Noah and Louie: how that friendship ends up where it does in the second film.
I know I am excited and really looking forward to this, as I hope the rest of you are as well. Check out the full interview with Duffy, Love, and publisher Keven Gardner over at Newsarama for more details on this upcoming miniseries.
