THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: “THE LOST GIG”
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 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 “in canon” story that ties directly into the first Boondock Saints film. “The Lost Gig” features fan favorite character ROCCO along with the BROTHERS McMANUS as they take on a group of drug dealers, right before their famous encounter with Vincenzo.
Fleshing out this special one shot is an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Troy Duffy, behind the scenes art from Toby Cypress, as well as a sneak-peek of May’s THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: “IN NOMINE PATRIS”.

LUKE MCBAIN: “BACK TO EDEN” #1-4
Country superstar TRACE ADKINS is LUKE MC BAIN, a man who makes the hard decisions. He doesn't say much, but he'll kick your ass if you get out of line. He's returned to his Northern Louisiana hometown to settle a score, but the town has changed, and the people he grew up with need his help. God help anyone who gets in his way.
Trace Adkins has sold over 10 million albums. He competed on "Celebrity Apprentice." You've heard his voice on "King of the Hill." But you've never seen Trace Adkins as LUKE MC BAIN -- an American hero for our times, in a story of right and wrong in the tradition of "BILLY JACK" and "WALKING TALL".
Written by David Tischman ("RED HERRING", "TRUE BLOOD") with artwork by Kody Chamberlain ("30 DAYS OF NIGHT: BLOODSUCKER TALES", "SHANG-CHI") and covers by Brian Stelfreeze ("BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE BAT").
