We have major deaths as Queen Maeve attacks Homelander first by throwing her "house boy" at him then she attacks him with her sword that breaks over his head to which he responds, "It's a metal prop you stupid whore." Next panel is her head flying to the ground.

Frenchie gets his arm blown off, and the female drives through some armored character and tears out his entire abdomen but really the moment we've been waiting for since issue one happens when Hughie punts A-TRAINS head clear off. I don't know how many issues are left but the book is pretty awesome.

Holy flurking schnitt! We’re in the end-game now for sure people. This issue of The Boys was one of the most eventful yet, and damn near blew my head off. People always talk about the big benefit of creator-owned comics is that creators can do what they want and kill people and this issue proved that, so much stuff you would never get in a mainstream comic happened here, and I’m not talking about the language or the gore. We start with Homelander’s plan coming to fruition as he attacks the White House, then we have the Frenchman having one of his arms ripped off! Then, in a brilliant scene, Hughie straight up Rugby-kicks A-Train’s head off! That’s been coming since #1 and it was wonderfully cathartic to see it finally happen. And then… Queen Maeve confronts Homelander, who rips her head off! Oh yes! And then (I know I sound like a little kid reciting a story here, but this is what this issue reduced me to, a gibbering child) Butcher tells MM to release all of the dirt on the superheroes they have to the media. It’s on, it’s fucking on! How many issues are left? I don’t know and I don’t care, I just hope they are as packed with brilliant stuff as this one was. If you’ve lost faith in comics ever being able to reach a satisfying conclusion, Garth Ennis has the cure for you right here.

I was actually happy to see Hughie kill A-Train. The cunt had it coming. Maeve's death did surprise me a bit though. Thought it was interesting she threw Annie to safety before confronting The Homelander. Can't wait to see how the series ends.

I did, but my post has to also make sense if read on it's own on the front page. It's no slight against you.

Posting exactly the same info as the post directly above seems a little pointless, dickish even... or at least you haven't added to the thread constructively except to express the fact that you also liked the issue.

AnyWAY,

This issue was AMAZING! I loved every moment of it. That said the moment for me wasn't Hughie toe-punting A-train it was the point of finality that is Maeve's character development. She died a true hero, saving Annie by throwing her. In a comic riddled with sex, drugs, sex, violence and sex I thought it was quite something that she would be the character to represent true selfless heroics. This I felt made more meaningful given that she appeared the most distant, drunk and when she first met Annie, after she had been forced to give oral sex to 4 guys, was not to care.

Could her death been made better if Homelander had stuffed her in a refridgerator? Too obvious for some, but I think so.

I can barely put it into words how excited I am about the next issue, not because of what Butcher may do, the Homelander and Vought information being made public, Homelander's coup or how they plan on stopping the Homelander.

Oh no.

I'm more excited about learning what James Stillwell has planned. He's the real villain. He has a plan to replace the Supes with a new money maker. I've been wracking my brain for weeks about what that could be, probably something ironic like The Boys version of an iPad. I can not wait.
