    After a long string of serious stories with a joke thrown in here or there, "The Boys" #37 a good break issue where the Frenchman tells Hughie a possibly true, possibly false story of his past that is sweet, sad, and very funny. It plays to the comedic strengths of both Ennis and Robertson, giving a full-on showing of how funny they can be, which we've gotten tastes of throughout the series, but, finally, a full issue devoted to it.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 4, 2009

    The flaws in this issue very apparent, but in spite of them, I really found myself enjoying this charming little story. Its one of the most absurd things we've seen in this series, which is good because if there is one thing that The Boys has lost, it's the sense of fun that permeated the early issues as a nice reprieve from the grim, sadistic world that the characters live in. Plus, even though we don't know any more about him than we did in the previous issues, Frenchie is now one of the coolest characters in the series just because of his insanely ridiculous "origin."
