The greatest two years of Billy Butcher’s life give us a glimpse of what might have been, as he and Becky set up home in Margaret Thatcher’s 80s Britain.

But a family tragedy heralds worse to come, and horribly- inexorably- the gates of hell swing open.

  1. I’m loving this mini so much, this is pretty much the story that I’ve wanted to hear ever since The Boys started

    • I’m enjoying this as well … the last issue was unforgettable … the only downside is that we all (I think) have a fairly good idea where this is going. I find it less satisfying reading a story about which I already know the ending. But that is a minor quibble about which Ennis has little control.

    • Yeah, we all know where this is going, but you know that Ennis is still gonna try and throw us a curveball somehow. I’m dreading seeing what is going to happen but I’m extremely excited for this mini. The art has been gorgeous thanks to Darick Robertson. I’m really hoping that after this series is done he goes on to help finish out the rest of the run of The Boys.

    • @kellan: <> Now that would be cool. I can’t say I’ve disliked the art since he left, but it just hasn’t had that gritty feel to it … it has been too cartoonish for a book like this.

  2. It’s going to take a while to forget that ending.

  3. Probably the best issue out of all the regular series issues and the minis. Absolutely heartbreaking.
