The Boys #1-65
The series is set in a contemporary world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series' universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "The Boys", is charged with monitoring the superhero community.
The Boys - Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker #1-6 (2011) Complete
The story of Billy Butcher, the Boys' mysterious leader, is told at last. From the backstreets of London's East End to the carnage of the Falklands War, from the heights of love to the depths of tragedy, the most violent man in comics reveals the terrible nature of the forces that drive him. And when he's done, he'll be ready... to finish things once and for all.
The Boys - Highland Laddie #1-6 (2010) Complete
Out of Dynamite Entertainment's critically acclaimed title, The Boys, comes a special story featuring everyone's favorite pint-sized Scotsman. Mind reeling from recent events in The Boys, Wee Hughie heads home to the Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together. You can go home again- but with old pals warped beyond recognition and strangers in town up to no good, whether or not you should is another matter entirely.
The Boys - Herogasm #1-6 (2009) Complete
Garth Ennis really goes over the top with this six-issue limited spin-off of his hit series The Boys. At first glance, it dangerously treads the line of pornography. Yet reading the first two issues further reveals several layers and sub-texts: it is not just a raunchy satire of the comics crossover and the comics industry's obssession with it; it also holds a mirror to us comic book readers for drooling and getting off on such events with masturbatory delight. The stylized, cartoonish art by McCrea and Burns is never more apt here, to distance the viewer and at the same time to piledrive the idea how utterly freaky the sex would be if superheroes ever have the chance to go at it. Yet it is never just about the sex alone. If you can get the pun on the name Isla McFarlane, then you can see how much of a metaphor Herogasm is for comics of today. Even for a Garth Ennis work, graphic and sexually explicit language and content. For mature readers only... What I've written above I guess would hold true for the first four--or even five issues. I really thought this series would end with a bang, but instead, it's more of a bluster. Is this still part of Ennis' joke, I wonder...
