review 1: Having read the conclusion, I think The Boys may be the best thing Ennis has written. It appears to be over the top satire of superhero comics, but it is so much more than that. A large part of it is a critique of certain forms of masculinity and how toxic they can be.There is pl...

review 1: One of those things that you can imagine arising sometime in the wee small hours as the creators imbibe illegal or very strong things towards the end of a long assignment. Very silly stuff, great fun, ultimately nothing to write home about, but you know you'll keep it for giggle...

review 1: Okay, so this is the stuff Ennis is really good at--violence with religious implications and conspiracies involving earthly and spiritual realms. This book contains two storylines--the first involving a conspiracy by a powerful group called the Grail to rig the second coming, or...

review 1: Felt like depravity for it's own sake. I wanted to give up after the first two issues -- and should have. I decided to read on because I know David Lapham takes over writing duties in the next trade and I wanted to know what happened (the characters, the villains, the goal, etc.)...

review 1: Okay, this volume was good...but was it necessary? No. It won't shock anyone who's read the earlier The Boys comics that this is origin story of Billy Butcher--and that's all that it is. There's no advancing of the storyline to date. You don't learn anything shockingly new ab...

review 1: Steps away from the action and intrigue of the main thrust of The Boys' narrative. Hughie's left The Boys (nominally) and gone home to smalltown Scotland to reflect on his work, and the revelation that his girlfriend is in fact a member of The Seven - the most powerful and most d...

review 1: Garth Ennis skips right past 11 and cranks it up to 20. It's full-on war, and that means there's blood on damn near every page, and the final twist at the end of the arc is only beat out by the over-the-top, double-triple gorey finale of the last few pages.If you've gotten queasy...

review 1: The last volume: wraps up all ends, commits surprises, among many other crimes, makes one sad because of all the deaths, (this may be one of the most emotional and bloody of all the volumes), but at the end, the world goes on, sometimes happy, sometimes just keeping up with the d...

review 1: Kuigi ilgelt palju oli rääkivaid päid ja tihedaid jutumulle, oli kaks liini mi smulle väga meeldisid. Esimene oli Vought Americani esimesed katsetused superkangelastega sõjaväljal, selline tragikoomiline veresaun kui näiteks lendav superkangelane hurraaga lennukipropellerisse len...

review 1: i'm not a comic book reader. but after reading a few of ennis' series, i really fell in love with his boundary-less style and the extremes to which he would go. and a friend of mine told me to check out a few of the punisher ones he wrote. check out my history. i totally did. whe...

review 1: Vol. 4 and we keep chugging along with our band on CIA-backed Supe-policers. Starting with the cover, this is a big tribute to Animal House, John Landis,and John Belushi (his character Blutarsky specifically). Hughie is sent undercover to investigate the G-Men (X-Men) and he star...

review 1: Never liked Darick Robertson's art, even Transmetropolitan, find it ragged and ropey, and while Ennis's obsessions with sex and violence can get tedious, at least he's really working with some strong themes in The Boys. That is, "who watches the watch men?" Who keeps an eye on th...

review 1: Now for those who read my last post on The Boys Volume 1: Name of the Game know that this series is very hard to describe! The word intense comes to mind. The artwork and story line tend to be very graphic. The language can be crude, so if your sensitive to those types of things,...

review 1: This TPB of The Boys is all about sex. If that offends you, you could probably forego reading this one, and still be able to keep up with the plot of the series. You'll see depicted just about any sexual position available between consenting adults, animals and probably inanimate...

review 1: Päris hea. Esimene pool tegeles natsi-Saksa superkangelasega kes küll miskipärast kuulus Ameerika superkangelaste tiimi. Kiire kuid fataalse cameo tegi kommunistlik supersangar Armuvorst, hüüdega "Suck the Love Sausage, germanski pig!" saatel löödi supernats roundhouse-kick'iga k...

review 1: The third volume in the series is more of a filler than anything else but unusually that is a good thing. The summary somewhat tells you what's going on but I wish they had gone into more about Frenchie (can't remember his name) and Female. Still this was a great entry and really...

review 1: It always felt a little wrong to love PREACHER.It's so purposefully ugly (in this volume, just for starters, we get anal rape, beastiality, child pornography... not to mention the inbred, retarded descendant of Jesus Christ) that you can't help but shake your head with each new e...

review 1: Here Ennis fills out the backstory of Billy Butcher, leader of The Boys and the man with the most focussed hatred of the despicable superhumans of the comic's universe. A tale of an East End childhood, an abusive father, serving as a Marine in the Falklands (which gives Ennnis a ...

review 1: Book #2 is a little calmer on the disgusting stuff. Still there though.As Book #1, its premise is one close to my heart: every time I read a comic or book (or watch a superhero movie), I always ask the question: "But what about the people that bomb killed?" or "but the train fell...

review 1: Garth Ennis picks up the character of Nick Fury, head of SHIELD, to write about what he writes about best - war. The framing device of the book is Fury sat in a hotel room, three prostitutes in the bed, a bourbon in one hand, a microphone in the other, talking into it with a ciga...

review 1: This actually was pretty good.Nick Fury, the chief spy in the Marvel Universe, tells of his time as a an operative for the CIA after WWII in a warts and all manner. You don't see a single cape and Fury hasn't even realised that he is practically immortal yet.His tale is focuses ...

review 1: My 5 star rating is for the series. I'm sure if you just jumped into this volume cold you would be far less impressed than if you read the previous thousand odd pages leading up to it. As a conclusion to the story it is as great and unexpected as it should be. The series as a who...
