    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.

    As I mentioned above, this is definitely a Mature Readers title. What makes it mature is not just the sex scene, or the rough language, or even the violence, it's the entirety of the package. While it may appear to be gratuitous, it's all there for a reason. Ennis & Robertson are building their own little universe here. One in which the heroes are not always pure of heart. And because of that, a team like The Boys is needed. I know I'm definitely on board until the end. And, as much as I don't like comparing one title to another, if you're a Preacher fan, you're going to love this book! Read Full Review

    The first issue of The Boys only reinforces my impression that Ennis is a one-trick pony, and if youve never heard of his one amazing trick, its called Preacher and you really should give it a try. Its one of the most clever, original, insightful and heartfelt reads in comics, but if you dont like that kind of stuff, you could always settle for The Boys. Read Full Review
