Well would you look at that, Garth Ennis can do romance comics too. This issue was a strange one, and despite the niceness of seeing Butcher fall in love with Becky, it was undercut by we the readers knowing what will happen to her. It’ll be messed-up when we finally see the Homelander’s rape-foetus burst out of her. The stuff with Butcher and his parents was also gripping, Butcher’s dad is a real cunt, and this issue really shone a light on spousal abuse. So any readers that were beating their wives should hopefully mend their ways after reading The Boys! Who’d have thunk it?
