I had been lead to believe that this was a 5 issue mini-series, so I was very pleased to reach the end of this one and discover there was still more to come, because this has been a great story. This issue features the aftermath of Butcher’s wife’s death, and it’s very emotional storytelling. You’ve got plenty of Ennis violence, like Billy gouging that Government suit’s eyes out, and then his first attack on a super-orgy, but the real heart of this issue was Becky’s diary and the description of her rape. Really powerful. It was also good to get confirmation that it was Homelander who raped her, I don’t think it had ever been stated outright like that. Darick Robertson’s art was brilliant as ever, he draws some of the best facial expressions in comics. I can’t wait to read the final unexpected (to me at least) issue of this mini and hopefully see how The Boys were formed by Butcher and Mallory.

I'm actually disapointted they outright named Homelander as the assaulter. I've felt, for a while, if Butcher based his whole campaign on essentially a lie, it would make him a much more interesting character.

That said, the stuff with Mallory and Butcher was brilliant. This last year of the Boys is going to be incredible.
