Last year fans of the popular Boondock Saints’ series flocked to near by comic shops and book stores to collect the 12-Gauge Comics comic mini series “IN NOMINE PATRIS.” which was well received by both veteran fans and newcomers to the series as well as critics for it’s loyal dedication to the core material the comic is based on. And while it may not be the next live action installment in the franchise fans are eagerly awaiting more. It did serve as a satisfactory alternative to the films which would keep the fans busy until the next installment. However, if you haven’t picked up your copy of this vigilant tale of mayhem and rough justice or is just hearing about it now, then you might want to hold off just a bit longer before picking up a copy as 12-Gauge Comics is re-releasing the graphic novel “IN NOMINE PATRIS.” in two special limited collector’s editions just in time for the holidays!
The BOONDOCK SAINTS' initial foray into comics is expanding into two new LIMITED COLLECTORS’ EDITIONS - A DELUXE HARDCOVER with exclusive deleted scenes and an ultra-rare signed and numbered “BLACK LABEL EDITION”.
The HARDCOVER is LIMITED to 850 COPIES and includes 16 pages of never before released, new material and a brand new cover by series Producer, Eben Matthews. This new content brings fans behind the scenes of the comic series and reveals the alternate version of the comic series’ second issue including the full story of IL DUCE’S BETRAYAL by “The Roman” and how we come to find him in Prison during the first film.

“IN NOMINE PATRIS” is Troy Duffy’s first foray into comics and the first outing of the Boondock Saints in a whole new medium.
