    So far, so good I ll be the 1st to admit that I only finally picked this up because of the impending tv show on , but in my defense, I d heard from multiple people that this title started off strong and then ended up shit.

    MUahahahahahahaWhat a grand treat this is I mean, I fell in love with theshow and I ve been a diehard fan of the Preacher also Garth Ennis , so it s kinda a no brainer that I would have gone gung ho over this one as well.What I DIDN T expect was just how far, how raunchy, how purely, gloriously satirical Ennis would take it A lot of the iconic scenes and character twists are exactly the same in both the tv show and the comic, but in some cases, it s much MORE Starlight, for example, MUahahahahahahaWhat a grand treat this is I mean, I fell in love with theshow and I ve been a diehard fan of the Preacher also Garth Ennis , so it s kinda a no brainer that I would have gone gung ho over this one as well.What I DIDN T expect was just how far, how raunchy, how purely, gloriously satirical Ennis would take it A lot of the iconic scenes and character twists are exactly the same in both the tv show and the comic, but in some cases, it s much MORE Starlight, for example, got cornered by three of the Seven on first meet and greet The Serum is muchwidespread than we were lead to believe in the show, as well And the embarrassing moments The blackmail attempts The full out craziness of the supes, everywhere These are worse in the comics And by worse, I mean deliciously horrific and entertaining.The satire is god awful brilliant I was really blown away by Tech Knight aka Batman and his little problem Getting to know The Legend aka Stan Lee was also great But you know what blew me away the most The f k up with the airplane It was this alternate history s 9 11, taking out the Brooklyn Bridge And the cluster F surrounding big corporations owning the government is pretty much the same only the big players are different Supes are BIG BUSINESS, ya know So delicious And I m only a third done in the Big Omnibus I can t wait to see how this war ENDS

    This is the latest installment in my Superhero Deconstruction reading marathon 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 puts it on display In true irreverent Ennis fashion, he takes the idea of selfless champions fighting for truth, justice, and the American Way, and turns it on its ass, showing us another possibility of what could happen if superpowered beings existed in our wo This is the latest installment in my Superhero Deconstruction reading marathon 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 puts it on display In true irreverent Ennis fashion, he takes the idea of selfless champions fighting for truth, justice, and the American Way, and turns it on its ass, showing us another possibility of what could happen if superpowered beings existed in our world The Supers here are egotistical, vindictive, sex crazed, drug addicted, or beholden to corporate agendas, and so there needs to be a force that can keep them in check That s where the Boys and The Female come in, but this ragtag group might not be all that different from the Supers It s funny, action packed, and comes close to crossing the line of obscenity, but it always kept me reading

    Ugh, had to change the version It said Kindle version and that is not me I despise audiobooks and their bastard spawn the e readers Sorry, I ll stick to books So, rant over, this version is the paperback The Boys have becomepopular recently due to the the tv show If you think the tv show is funny, dark and a wee bit over the top in terms of violence or shock value then it is obvious you have not read the comic The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes are kings and do as Ugh, had to change the version It said Kindle version and that is not me I despise audiobooks and their bastard spawn the e readers Sorry, I ll stick to books So, rant over, this version is the paperback The Boys have becomepopular recently due to the the tv show If you think the tv show is funny, dark and a wee bit over the top in terms of violence or shock value then it is obvious you have not read the comic The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes are kings and do as they please A mega corporation runs the heroes and manages their publicity But, a rouge or even uncaring superhero can have terrible consequences for humanity This isn t Marvel or DC with their huge wars that end up destroying cities and then you find out 2 people died but the rest evacuated No Not in Garth Ennis twisted world.This is how we meet Wee Hughie, who has his girlfriend killed by a superhero He turns 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 It can offend some people and others just might find it too vulgar If you have those kinds of feelings, may I suggest you avoid any Garth Ennis His medium of art requires a decent amount of shock value But, for all that, there is dark humor prevalent throughout this story.The Boys is a subversive ride through a world where the Superheroes aren t that super and a group exists to police them Using excess violence and vulgarity, Ennis crafts an amusing and different tale While not for everyone, this is a damn fine comic for those who are looking for something different If you consider yourself an Ennis fan, then there is no reason for you not to get this excellent 1st volume My edition also had some cool extra information in the back about the Boys and its members

    Tries too hard to be shocking Crass for no real reason None of the characters is developed enough to really get invested in The story is all over the place The show is far superior.

    This is a comic book about a group of vigilantes the Boys backed by the CIA, who made it their goal to monitor and sometimes punish superheroes I don t usually read comics growing up in the USSR I couldn t have then as a kid and now it is a little too late to enter that rather interesting art medium , but I saw the trailer of the TV series and decided to try it.The story starts with a girlfriend of one of the protagonists accidentally killed by a super as can be seen in the trailer He i This is a comic book about a group of vigilantes the Boys backed by the CIA, who made it their goal to monitor and sometimes punish superheroes I don t usually read comics growing up in the USSR I couldn t have then as a kid and now it is a little too late to enter that rather interesting art medium , but I saw the trailer of the TV series and decided to try it.The story starts with a girlfriend of one of the protagonists accidentally killed by a super as can be seen in the trailer He is then recruited by a shady character named Butcher to join the team that fights supers At the same time in a parallel story, the superteam 1, the Seven, get a new member, a girl named Starlight In order to show us the true nature of the supers she ordered as a final exam to suck dicks there is a lot of explicit of content in the book, not as much as directly graphical, but strong innuendos of the male part of the team Then the Seven seat around not discussing how to save the world, but who will get what share of team s royalties So, we are shown that these supers are bastards and our Boys are right to go get them.The story has a ton of allusions to D and Marvel universes and characters here the leader of the Seven is Homelander, a mix of Supernan and Captain America The sideline story arc about a latent gay Tek Knight, who is clearly a parody of Batman There are supers in Russia the Soviet tem called Glorious Five Year Plan.The book tries to shock the reader by explicit sex, race and perv stories, not always successfully It also goes the wrong way from what I would like to see ordinary men and women against supers, mind against power So, 5 star idea but implementation is average

  8. Kassie says:

    Everything that this comic got wrong, the show did right.There is so much misogyny in this graphic novel, i just couldn t get through it.The show takes this awesome plot, fixes its nasty flaws, and made a 5 5 star show There s obviously something here but this writing just wasn t for me.

    I like Garth Ennis, so I really wanted to like this a lot Turns out I liked it just okay Don t get me wrong, the concept and potential are great The execution in this omnibus the first 14 issues , though is lacking It feels hyper violent and overly crude just for the sake of being violent and crude Ennis has a fixation in largely belittling gay people and using the word f ggot I tried to assume it s because we aren t really supposed to LIKE the Boys I get that the protagonist isn t alw I like Garth Ennis, so I really wanted to like this a lot Turns out I liked it just okay Don t get me wrong, the concept and potential are great The execution in this omnibus the first 14 issues , though is lacking It feels hyper violent and overly crude just for the sake of being violent and crude Ennis has a fixation in largely belittling gay people and using the word f ggot I tried to assume it s because we aren t really supposed to LIKE the Boys I get that the protagonist isn t always going to be a good person, but no member of our main group of heroes behaves well Hughie, the audience POV character, is just as homophobic as Billy He gets a bit better, but I wasn t really comfortable with any of the characters I m willing to give Ennis the benefit of the doubt and try oneomnibus because I really did enjoy the concept of this, but overall I was a bit turned off

    I ve seen this title before and didn t know what to make of it But there s a show being made now from the people that adapted Preacher by this same author, so I decided as a book first person I d give it a shot.I m surprised how much I liked this.Normally I preferoptimistic or surrealist comic book stories This is muchin the darker cynical Wanted or Watchmen style category, in my opinion While I don t normally go for this sort of thing, like the previously mentioned titles, I ve seen this title before and didn t know what to make of it But there s a show being made now from the people that adapted Preacher by this same author, so I decided as a book first person I d give it a shot.I m surprised how much I liked this.Normally I preferoptimistic or surrealist comic book stories This is muchin the darker cynical Wanted or Watchmen style category, in my opinion While I don t normally go for this sort of thing, like the previously mentioned titles, I like it sometimes Moreover while some people like one tone or another, I think there s a place for all of it, as long as it s done well.This is done well.Despite the fact this is dark, cynical, and crass and it is , it also has an original bent to a superhero story There s also surprisingly some thoughtful commentary for a comic that, content warning , had a superhero who could stop having sex with everything die stopping an asteroid byumyeah I m going to have to read the rest of this series and now I m also excited for the show
