    The Boys has long been a favorite of mine, and I have found that the quiet issues are often some of my favorites, as we learn more about the characters' internal realities, making their wild shenanigans and bloody lives seem less ridiculous. For the book that vowed to out-Preacher Preacher, Ennis has always imbued this title with deep character and bits of humanity that even ground lunatics like the Homelander somewhat. The problem comes in that as the series progresses, the heroes are proving to be as horrifying as the villains (although whatever last month's cover was about may put the lie to that) and I'm finding myself trusting Butcher less and less with each successive secret revealed. The Boys Sixty-Two is a good issue, though a bit conventional, but very successful in building the tension towards what I'm expecting to be a very bloody conclusion, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall.
