I could not be happier with this issue, THE BOYS ARE BACK!

The Boys is easily one of my favourite comics ever so to see them back is amazing in itself but to see them back with an opening issue like this is amazing. Wee Hughie is back home in Bonnie Scotland and spends most of the issue in the pub with Bobbi (NOT Bobby) all the characters are back including the horrendous barman beezer who has some very choice words for Hughie. Hughie receives a parcel that could spell trouble.

The artwork has exactly the same feel to it as if they had never been away, Bobbi looks amazing, the gore is suitably gory and the whole issue just feels fun. We don’t get to see Annie in this issue whether that means she has changed and will be a shock I don’t know it may just mean there was no real reason to see her but it has piqued my interest. It wouldn’t be the Boys without a little bit of violence and I loved it. As usual, they find their own unique style to deal with the problem of a certain secret word being uttered, I did wonder why they were doing what they were doing but when it paid off I genuinely laughed out loud.

Its been a while since we saw them last but it is a genuine pleasure to see Wee Hughie and Bobbi wax lyrical about being woke, Brexit, and the eejits who voted leave!

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
