The Boys: Herogasm #1 (DE)
The run of excellent form on The Boys continues with this first spin-off. Basically a massive p*ss take on the ‘event’ and the ‘cross-over’ that are now synonymous with the summer comics of the big 2, Ennis peels back the lies to reveal what really goes on during the summer months for the supes. The Boys are there, staking out, but their purpose is still vague at the minute. Debauched, wild, a definite ‘mature’ rating – Herogasm #1 is a sex, drugs and rock n roll riot. If I draw a comparison with the best pop songs, this issue is a complete head rush, exciting, fast and SEXY. 9 out of 10.
The Punisher #5 (Marvel)
Pizzas, Ant-Man costumes, Microchip, guns, death, explosions, the Hood and the dead Dormammu. As exciting as the last 4 issues in this series, Remender and Co. keep serving up the thrills. The pace is RELENTLESS, though a bit more serious and a bit darker than the other 4. The bit with the pizza delivery is priceless though. One of the best of the Dark Reign titles. 8 out of 10.
