BOYS #54

In the aftermath of VAC’s first superhero combat trial, Greg Mallory finds himself cast adrift – until the opportunity for vengeance suddenly presents itself. A clandestine organization arises with the coming of the cold war, and Mallory finds himself playing spymaster… with no inkling of the moral compromise he’ll eventually be forced to make.

Sixty years of the Boys’ secret history continues, in part three of Barbary Coast.

  1. This story has definitely been a step up

  2. @mikeandzod21  I agree, but it is not like it had much more room to go down.

  3. This book went downhill rapidly after the second arc. Love Ennis but why people are still buying it is beyond me

  4. I enjoyed the “Super Duper”(Innocents?) story – “Believe(?)” had its moments as well – the scene with Homelander dropping that carload of winners was chilling. It has been hit and miss though – more miss recently. This current story arc is a huge silver lining…I think Ennis is loving the WW2 setting.
    Gonna tough this book out – probably less than 20 issues left – so i’m willing to roll the dice.

  5. indeed.  up’s and down’s.  War saves the storyline as Ennis retreats into his favourite genre.  Boy’s & American Vampire crossover?  It started going downhill for me once Robertson bailed.  I bet that the Butcher origin story will be good.

  6. @skydog – Is Butcher’s back story gonna be in  the regular run? Or did I imagine I read about a mini-series at some point?

  7. @DuncanIdunno  I believe I heard it’s going to be a mini as well.

    I think the whole G-Men story killed a lot of the momentum. I did like the origin issues, especially Mothers Milk. That was pretty emotional. I also enjoyed the Super Duper arc and this current one. It’s a very inconsistent book but I am going to tough it out as well.

  8. A bit talky, but pretty good.

  9. Damn this was wordy. It was like a Chris Claremont book, but not nearly as exclamitory

  10. I like all the issues don’t care who says other wise

  11. I’ll see this to the end. It is a short distance to #72. Despite some irregularities in the art since Robertson left this title, the story has carried me through. I can’t see where it’s going, but I can see it going somewhere …

    Butcher’s origin is its own mini
