The Boys #60 (Didn't they die last week? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Nov 05, 2011 12:16 pm

Lots of outstanding moments in this issue. First you have the President getting his face ripped off and killed by a wolverine. Not Wolverine, I mean the actual animal. It was a cool little parody of everybody’s favourite Canadian midget, and it was hilarious and shocking. Then there was the revelation that MM’s ex had got his daughter doing porn, which was just insane, I can’t believe even Ennis would go there, and it’s just another thing to put on the list of shit that is going to blow the fuck up in the coming months. And then there was the hilarious appearance of ‘Team Titanic’ a genius piss-take of the work of Rob Liefeld and Jim Lee and Marc Silvestri and all of those early Image super-teams. It was a genuinely laugh-out-loud moment, just fucking spot-on. But I think the most memorable moment of this issue was actually a quiet bit, when Butcher momentarily forgets that Terror has been killed. That’s the thing about Ennis’ work, he’s most famous for when he shocks you or grosses you out, but he’s actually a master of the quiet, emotional bits.

Because he was a member of the team and his family.

I don't want to read it ever now because of the Terror thing.
