A return visit to Doctor Peculiar's yields more damning evidence against Jack from Jupiter- but even with a major supe in his sights, Butcher seems less and less happy with where the Boys' latest investigation is leading them. Hughie goes peeping where he really shouldn't, and learns more about Queen Maeve than he ever wanted to know. And before they know it, our heroes find themselves face to face with their deadliest enemies of all. Things go nuclear fast, in part three of The Big Ride.

    Nothing much about "The Boys" #58 will make you uncomfortable in its usual way. The underlying emotions and cruelty on display may; the unexpected turn towards the end of the issue is the big surprise, beginning the push towards the end of the title. It's not a typical issue of "The Boys" despite beginning, on the surface, in a manner that people would expect from the title. But, look a little deeper and the truth of the situation is apparent. The time for snickering at superheroes looks to be at end; now the real business can begin. Read Full Review

    This issue is a nasty piece of work. It exposes the foils and foibles of the underside of the superhero trade. Yes, it's hard to believe the "heroes" we saw partying at Herogasm could have a down side or even dirtier secrets, but there are layers beneath layers here. Read Full Review
