Garth Ennis steps up the violence, profanity and nudity another notch in this excellent graphic novel series.  Although it is in some ways more  risky than even “the Preacher”  it makes light of it.  The “Boys” is about a group of misfits that exist to keep Superheroes in check. This is very much an anti superhero book and they are definitely painted as the villains. This is a very funny and well written novel and it has plenty of shock value too.  The character development is top notch and the British bulldog “Terror” is an absolute star. Special mention must go to Darick Robertsons artwork that really is perfectly suited to this story.[ISBN-13: 978-1933305738]. 9/10
