The Boys 59 was the best thing in comics for many months, and it was all down to a single panel (spoilers)….

….and that was the dead-eyed stare of Butcher (excellently captured by artist Russ Braun) as he did what he did in The Boys issue 59. As we approach the endgame of this (mostly) fantastic series, this issue, and specifically the last few pages, were pivotal. Whether Ennis just plunges all and sundry into war now, or he pulls back for a little while, lets the tension mount, is unclear. But when Ennis does brutal, he really captures the depravity and senselessness, puts a knot in your gut.

‘The first bad day’ as The Frenchman proclaimed the events of issue 59, is merely a portal into much worse to come.
