The third bad day: as Hughie reels from the events of last issue, the trail leads him to the home of an old adversary thought long dead. Butcher gets in touch with a few details no one’s yet considered, and Frenchie gives our hero a brutally honest rundown on his chances- before a lethal attack at the heart of the Boys’ operation shatters the status quo forever. Hughie finally discovers exactly what he’s doing, in part four of The Bloody Doors Off.

Well, that’s a true first for a comic book cover as far as I know, a post-masturbation scene, with a Queen Maeve magazine image as the catalyst for the (ahem) ‘act’.
If anyone was ever going to provide the comic book world with such a front cover, one of my top choices to provide it would be Garth Ennis. Bless him. He has delivered.
The Boys #62 will be out in January, courtesy of Dynamite.
That cover really captures the ‘spirit’ of The Boys. If you read the title, I would give you one guess what Starlight had just done to cause her to wipe her mouth – and I bet you would guess correct….
I haven’t reviewed this in a few issues, so I think it is time for a catch-up. The current arc ‘The Innocents’ is as dense as ever in Vought American intrigue, and ‘Superduper’ are not particularly interesting (or funny). But where ‘The Boys’ is hitting the heights is in the fragmentation of The Boys themselves. Butcher no longer trusts Hughie, and Butcher also knows about Hughie and Starlight. Now, MM appears to be on a collision course with Butcher. And in the background, simmering, is the knowledge that sooner or later Annie (aka Starlight) will confess to Hughie about her Super Identity. Strange, exciting times.
Is simply excellent. The quality control on the covers that Dynamite release is second to none.

Hughie goes to work on Superduper, and soon realizes that he’s never seen Supes like these before. With the arrival of new leader Malchemical, the Superduper kids have problems of their own – and Hughie’s unexpected assistance only deepens Butcher’s dark suspicions. MM, in turn, is starting to wonder about Butcher’s motives in all this… our heroes weave a tangled web, in part two of “The Innocents”.
