    Whilst I definitely prefer the more subtle "less is more" approach that we've seen over the last couple of issues of The Boys to the empty shock tactics of the first few, there's a sense that not a huge amount happens this issue. However, it lays some important groundwork for the arc, giving us lots of new character information (I particularly appreciated the extended focus on Mother's Milk, who looks to be one of The Boys' most complex and interesting members) and setting up a fun confrontation between Hughie, The Butcher and Tek-Knight next issue. The last few issues of this book have done a lot to convince me that it's capable of more than just a one-note joke about the ridiculousness of superhero comics, and as Ennis has continued to add texture to the initially two-dimensional characters, I've found myself becoming more invested in where their story goes next.
