    Next issue is sadly, our last addition to this series. I can't get over how attached I got to all the characters. Instantaneously, this series grabs your attention and you lose yourself in this outrageous world. It's been exciting, intriguing, hilarious, and downright revolting but all in all, I've truly enjoyed this series. I give this issue a 10/10. Read Full Review

    As the police approach the two, Butcher is forced to use Hughie for one last task. Going from calm to professional to downright sinister in the span of 3 pages, Butcher manipulates Hughie into doing something neither Hughie or anyone else would think him capable of. The Boys #71 may not be a perfect issue it is, after all, essentially all dialogue. But it also represents a highpoint of of one of the best series in modern comics, and one of the best characters as well. It packs an emotional weight with readers that few other comics can equal, and enunciates the themes of the series in a manner that feels completely organic to the story. And most importantly, its a fitting end for Butcher and The Boys. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 2, 2012

    Considering there is only one issue to go, I for one am certainly looking forward to it. Given the current events, its not entirely clear how everything will pan out. If there's one thing The Boys has proven over time, its that the odd spanner in the works is never out of the question. In short, bring on issue 72. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Josh Pierce Oct 3, 2012

    As this series comes to close many of The Boys fans should wonder, and think about the importance of this series in the world of comic books. Does this series matter in the long term? Will there be lasting effects felt across the industry? Will other writers take the same template in exploring and making fun of the convention of super hero comic books? Honestly, it's a great book, but the effect like any other book will not last. Read Full Review

    "The Boys" #71 is Billy Butcher's last stand and last con, his last clash and heart-to-heart with Hughie, one final all-out reckoning courtesy of Ennis and Braun, and it's a good one. Read Full Review
