    This book continues to demonstrate a versatility that I didnt think possible at first. When The Boys started out it seemed a goof, Garth Ennis being puckish with superhero archetypes. What it quickly became was a writer (and artist) at the top of his game. The world of superheroes is just a playground for Ennis to experiment with genres that otherwise dont fit. The Boys is quintessential Ennis and thats not to everybodys taste. But The Boys apparently can be many things at onceall of them entertaining. Read Full Review

If they're looking to craft a clever superhero satire, they're beginning to neglect the clever part. And if they're looking to craft an engrossing superhero conspiracy, they're beginning to neglect the engrossing part. These are all major problems, and if they persist, this series isn't going to remain on many readers' pull list. Read Full Review
