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!
