This issue we get to see Hughie lost for words and the only person able to take the make fun of Butcher, and live.

Annie must love nothing more than going for a walk on the Scottish lochs, it certainly seems less stressful than giving Hughie a lift. I’m a little dismayed she isn’t pregnant but then given Hughie’s response to her hinting of commitment its no wonder she’s not, he is definitely punching. Will keeping Butchers diary a secret be the final straw?

I love seeing this other side to Butcher, the side where he can take a joke and is totally at ease with everything. Becky is a definite calming influence and its easy to see how he went off the rails once he lost her, she keeps him in check. Unfortunately (for them)  the children of Stormfront do not have the same effect and it looks like they are going to learn the hard way how Butcher does business. I like the Sequel prequel idea seeing how it was in The Boys and how it’s now affecting Hughie, I’m interested in any insights or secrets Hughie might discover and where the story is going but that’s for later right now I just wanna see Butcher lose it on Vikor and his cronies.

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
