Vikor gets persuaded that Butcher’s way is probably the best and Hughie realizes the moment it all went wrong.

My absolute favourite thing about the boys comic is the relationship between Frenchie and the Female, I love the way that they are totally insane in the truest sense. It always made me laugh when they would be in the background playing reverse strip poker or scrabble on a monopoly board and thankfully it is continuing here. The contrast of the Female’s ability for violence coupled with insisting on Teddy bears just gets me.

I’m loving seeing this part of the story, in the original books you saw a bit of the origin and obviously what happened after Hughie arrived but we didn’t really see how Butchers relationship with Becky was or the “Mallory incident” this is the perfect way to fill in the gaps of the story and its been done in a brilliant way.

M.Ms story seemed to be pretty well covered in the previous books but I hope we get a new aspect of his life too and his relationship with Butcher as he seems to be the only person that keeps Butcher on track. I love this comic and can’t wait for the next issue.

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
