In the end it's an incredibly imaginative story that is very well drawn, often utilizing the drawing style of the original "supes" that Ennis is Mocking. Enjoy!
The second story with Russia and Little Nina was, for me, a total bust. Little Nina could have been interesting - if she ever actually faced off against The Boys. Would have maybe been a good chance to give the Female something to do. Instead, they wasted an entire plot that really came to nothing. Like previous reviewers have noted, the fill-in art the last two issues was distracting. But it was the lack of a real story or interesting villain that bugged me the most.
When superheros misbehave, as they all pretty much seem bent on doing, then you would be VERY grateful for Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, the Female and Frenchman on your side. This volume does a very good job of some exposition on the "Supes" generally [and one specifically with a very hard problem to solve] as well as finding the whole team in frozen Mother Russia for a little visiting of old friends, a bit of drinking and a lot of save Save SAVE the stupid world.
If you have found Transmetropolitan to be entertaining to the eyeball and took any pleasure in the sour sweet tales of The Preacher and the beautiful depth of characterizations found in both then hopefully The Boys will slap you in the right places....
My understanding = this tale is promised for about six "volumes" so here's hoping it doesn't fizzle away like Desolation Jones - I'm going to find a Comix House and get MY subscript underway ASAP
I wish you Peaxe and excellent reading,

The art is as good as ever with strong characterisation, some good visual storytelling and sight gags. Some nice panels here and there but the art is more serviceable than ground-breaking. There are an awful lot of talking heads so maybe in future there will be more time to shine. Thumbs Up.
The boys is fun, violent and the characters are flawless and one the most humorous series I have read. I really hope this becomes a TV show.
The trademark Ennis dialogue is still sharp, and the characters well defined but the ultraviolence feels a bit cheesy after a couple of decades.
I like the artwork by Robinson and Snejbjerg - Robinson's Killer the bulldog is especially vivid.
Garth has done and can do better than this.
Boyfriend got hooked on after reading the first one. Really good concept
