How I Got It: J owns it

The war is over and the world is saved. The supes have been beaten down so far they’ll never get up again. So why would anyone want one hundred and eighteen metric tons of the only substance on earth that can kill them all stone dead? Bad days start coming thick and fast, as the Boys are caught in the last throes of the battle they were recruited to fight so long ago. Hughie, all on his own and out of luck, finds himself walking down one last bloody trail – and the truth he finds waiting for him at the end of it will be nothing short of shattering! Billy Butcher’s vengeance comes full circle, in this twelfth and final entry in the story of The Boys.
Wow!  What an ending!  I have to admit that I did not see that coming at all.  Of course there was always something else at play throughout the volumes, but I did not suspect.  It was nice to have an actual conclusion.  No major cliffhangers, not major questions.   Everything doesn’t end happily ever after, but I didn’t expect it would.  Instead, the ending makes sense for the story and the world.  I’ve really enjoyed this series.  Sure it’s violent, but deep down it’s a political thriller, a mystery.  I loved it!
