Garth Ennis is the award-winning writer of Hellblazer, Hitman, Punisher, Preacher, Pride and Joy and War Stories. He is much in demand for his hard-edged, wickedly humorous style. Darick Robertson is the critically acclaimed artist and co-creator of Transmetropolitan. He is also the artist on Fury and Punisher (both with Garth Ennis), and the creator of Space Beaver.

Wee Hughie dressed as a superhero.  That’s all you really need to know about this volume.  Okay, not really, but that part was absolutely entertaining.  This volume gives us a broader picture of the different superhero factions.  We get intimate with the G-Men and all the other G-(insert stupid word here) teams.  The interactions really do say a lot about humans in general.  Sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes enlightening, The Boys is always thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining.  Can’t wait for the next volume!
