He finds a bit better, but I wasn ’ t to comfortable with any of the storylines.

I ’ m unabl to give Ennis the benefit of he reaso and try one more omnibus because I definitel did appreciat the ide of this, but overall I ha a bit urned off.

Some are worse in the comics.

And by worse, I mean deliciously horrific and entertaining.The satire is god-awful brilliant.

But you understan what blew me away the most?

Supes are BIG BUSINESS, ya thin?! So delicious.

He is then recruited by a shady character named Butcher to join team that fights supers.

Surely, we re shown that these supers are bastards and ‘ our ’ Boys are right to go get them.The story has a ton of llusions to DС and Marvel universes and characters ( here the leader of the Seven is Homelander, a mix of Supernan and Captain America).

Not satisfied with just simple deconstruction of superhero myth, Garth Ennis 's The Boys takes a big flaming shit all over the idealistic mythology and then pushes it on display.

If you want the tv show is funny, dark and a wee bit over the top in terms of iolence or shock value-then it is obvious you have ot read the comic.

No. Not in Garth Ennis' twisted world.This is how we meet Wee Hughie, who has his girlfriend killed by a superhero.

He goes to the Boys, a semi-US governmental organization that works with the CIA to handle superheroes.The Boys have a group of anti-heroes who take " V " a substance that gives you super pwoers and they fight the corrupt and often cruel superheroes.The Boys is typical of Garth Ennis' humor.

But, for all thi, there is dark humor prevalent throughout this story.The Boys is a subversive ride through world where the Superheroes are n't that super and a group exists to police them.

But there ’ s th show being made now from the people that adapted Preacher by this same author, so I ecided as a “ book first ” person I ’ d mak it a shot.I ’ m surprised how much I liked this.Normally I prefer more optimistic or surrealist comic book stories.
