Hughie takes a break from his undercover op, hoping to find a little Romance amidst the chaos of the G-world. MM's investigations take him down some dark paths- though not as dark as Butcher's, who gets a nasty surprise and promises even worse for the culprit. And in the senses-shattering story of the year, featuring two-fisted titanic action the way you demanded it, the endlessly uncanny G-Men go for... brunch?

    It's a very unnerving scene, with Butcher having put a fist through his monitor, and obviously still not happy, though he pets his dog seemingly calmly. There's a real sense that something big is about to happen in this issue, as Hughie's cover may be blow, Butcher and Mother's Milk both find breaks in their cases, and the peculiar psychoses of John Godolkincontinue to come to light. The only real weakness in this issue was one of comparitiveness, as fill-in artist John Higgins isn't quite up to regular artist Robertson's standards. The plot gets more motion than in the last couple of issues, and Garth Ennis still manages to make us like unlikeable characters with his take on G-Wiz. Overall, this issue is a goody, though not for the squeamish, as perversion and adult themes abound throughout the story. The Boys Twenty-Six is a strong 3 out of 5 star affair, keeping the story arc going without feeling like they're stretching too hard.. Read Full Review
