This second Edition of The Boys collects issues 7-14 . This novel features two story arcs that are both really good. The first story is a sort of detective story where the Boys try to find the killer of a young boy and just how the mighty Tek-Knight is involved. It is a well written story that does a great job of fleshing out the characters developed in the first novel. Just like the first novel it does step on the toes of many taboos but it is done in such a way as to be entertaining rather than shocking. It moves the overall plot along nicely.
The second story involves the team flying into Russia to solve the mystery of exploding “Supes”. This is a fantastic story with great characters and backdrops. My favorite character was the ex Russian Superhero “Love Sausage” who has some fantastic one liners that had me laughing out loud.
“Get Some” is violent, crude, gory and way off being even partially politically correct. Ennis is on top of his game here and he is complemented by Robertson’s superb artwork. [ISBN-13: 978-1933305684]. 8/10
