The Boys Are Back in Town

In an exciting development for everybody who loves hyper-violent sexualized comics/graphic novels, Garth Ennis's The Boys is back. For those who don't remember, Ennis got a lot of press (okay, a lot of press on the comic scene, but still) for claiming that Boys would outdo Preacher, an earlier work of his and a candidate for greatest graphic work ever, in my humble opinion. Of course, the violence got too much for the publisher and it was pulled. But thank the Lord it's back now, so readers can continue to watch Billy Butcher, Lil' Hughie and the rest of the gang beat up on depraved superheroes. Barnes and Noble definitly won't be selling it. Check out Golden Apple Comics on Melrose for the latest issue and issues 1-6 collected in paperback. You won't regret this.
