"Good For The Soul" concludes with a bang- or a splat- as a reluctant Hughie takes on the resurrected Blarney Cock in a no-holds barred brawl for it all. Annie January tells A-Train the long and the short of things, Mother's Milk continues to mystify, and Butcher provides some much-needed advice on funeral arrangements. And will Hughie ever be allowed to forget his "facial incident"?

    As amusing as this fight scene is, the highlight of the issue comes with a conversation between Willy and Butcher, one that demonstrates not only the two characters' differing philosophies on life and their brutal job, but also how such diametrically opposed men could realistically call themselves friends. In typical Ennis fashion, the scene is as funny and crude as it is strangely heart-warming, a balancing act that only Ennis can pull off consistently. Read Full Review
