We knew it was coming. Butcher told Hughie the story of how his wife died way back in the first story arc, but seeing it is a different matter. Bloody hell, seeing that flying superhuman foetus was just horrific and scary, it was monstrous. That is a sequence that will live with me for a long time, kudos to Darick Robertson, it could have been ridiculous, but it wasn’t. I can’t wait to see how Billy gets recruited by Mallory next issue. But this issue wasn’t all terrifying super-babies, there was some interesting political commentary about Thatcherism here. That’s The Boys for you, Ennis can mix up real-life issues with insane out-there shit better than anyone, and both of them stay with you. Fucking Homelander man, he’s going down.
