The Boys #1

Jun 16, 2016

Garth Ennis does an incredible job in The Boys #1, and the artistic style of Darick Robertson fits the writing like a puzzle piece. If you, like me, are tired of reading the same Batman story for the 15th reboot, strapped down with DC's PG rules and character guidelines, then this series is an absolute must after issue one.

The Boys #2

Jun 26, 2016

The Boys #2 is not as violent as the first, and drives around introducing us to The Boys. Ennis even adds in a few jokes just for the sake of a joke. We find out that Butcher works for the CIA and that The Boys will do something about out of control superheroes, we are still not exactly sure what. The mystery behind who The Boys are and what Butcher wants to accomplish is genuinely interesting. I remember getting the sense that although Butcher cares about his people, he cares about himself the most. Why does Butcher hate supes? Once again, it is clear that we will need a lot of backstory in order to understand why and where Garth Ennis is taking us.

The Boys #3

Jul 24, 2016

The Boys #3 is another solid issue by Ennis who keeps pushing the pace and giving us what we want. "Cherry" is still an introductory issue, but we are finally able to see where things may be headed. With most character introductions out of the way, a plot is developing and already we can start making some predictions about how this story will pan out. It's becoming apparent that there should be a super-fight between The Boys and the 7, but when that will take place is still very vague. In the meantime, I'm content with The Boys running over Teenage Kix.
