Description

This is going to hurt! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone's got to make sure the "supes" don't get out of line. And someone will!



Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: A CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth - superpower! Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them - sometimes - need to be taken out of the picture. That's when you call in The Boys!

Review quote

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Wee Hughie is a sweet, moralistic
Scotsman, desperately in love with his girlfriend. After she is killed during a
battle between a careless superhero and his nemesis, Wee Hughie is recruited to
work alongside the Boys, a CIA-backed squad tasked with keeping the world's
superpowered population under control. Soon Wee Hughie discovers that many of
the greatest heroes are secretly vicious and depraved, driven to extreme
behavior by their celebrity status and often protected by corporate interests
and political operatives who wield even more power than men and women capable of
bending steel with their bare hands. Author Ennis (Sara) and illustrator
Robertson (Transmetropolitan: Book One) revel in graphic sex and
violence. And while their often juvenile sense of humor may keep some readers at
bay, those willing to stick with the series will discover that the more extreme
elements of the story juxtapose fascinatingly with a deeply moralistic, human,
and even romantic point of view.
VERDICT
This omnibus volume collects issues 1-15 of the
continuing story line that inspired the highly anticipated upcoming Amazon Prime
streaming series and should see high interest from
readers.
