Last week, I realized I was hopelessly out of date on Boys, so I grabbed all four trades, the issues of Boys that have come out since, as well as the first two issues of Herogasm.  It was a satisfying chunk of reading, and I didn’t have the “I’ve been reading this for months and it isn’t really going anywhere” malaise that the iFanboys talked about a while back.  It will be a few more weeks before I feel like I’m back in issues, and then I’ll decide whether or not I should just stick to trades.

This issue of Herogasm seemed more story intense, and less “we’re setting the scene with SHOCKING SCHLOCK!” than the last two.  Definitely a good thing.  And we learned the real reason they’re stalking Herogasm.  Ok, not the full story, but the person they were out to apprehend.  All in all, a solid issue.

  1. I have the first four trades of The Boys too, but I’m staying switched to issues now.  Garth Ennis is too good to wait for the trade, even though I like trades a lot more cuz issues are a pain in the ass to manage and find.

    That’s weird.  I just re-read all my The Boys trades last week too.  I’m about to read volume 4 for a third time today after I read my new shit.
