Team leader Billy Butcher, described by a confidential C.I.A. report as "the most lethal individual ever encountered by this agency," is on the hunt for new recruits - but it takes something special to join this outfit. You have to be smart. You have to be strong. And you have to hate supes with every ounce of black passion in your heart.

    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. Read Full Review
