How I Got It: J owns it
The second volume of Garth Ennis and Darick Roberston’s acclaimed series The Boys is here! BIGGER! THICKER! UNCUT! (not that Garth would ever allow this gang of idiots to cut anything!) Get Some collects issues 7-14 of the critically acclaimed series and is an excellent companion to Dynamite’s best-selling Volume I trade “The Name of the Game! These issues feature the legend the story of the Tek-Knight and the team’s journey to frozen Russia!
Another series that I just adore. And it’s all J’s fault. Yep, that’s right, I’m blaming him. Now I have to read the rest of these volumes. Oh well, at least the reads will be enjoyable.
The second volume had more politics, superhero antics, mystery, and conflicted. I am loving Hughie’s gradual accepatance of his job and place in the world. The storyline from Tek Knight was an itneresting take on politics and corprations. I really liked the mystery of the story. The story set in Russia was a blast, literally! My only problem: they did away with Little Nine so soon. She seemed like an interesting character. It would have been nice to see more from her.
