I REALLY dig the Amazon show The Boys a lot. I think it’s brilliant. I had not read the comic before so gave it a shot. I had previously read that a lot was changed for the show that’s not an exaggeration.
In many ways, not surprising for anyone who has read much of Garth Ennis’s work, the book is more delightfully depraved. It’s really a completely different story in so many ways. I find the show a bit more subversive. The shows version of Homelander is a psychopath who turns on the perfect smarmy charm in a second. The actor is fantastic btw. This volume doesn’t have a lot of Homelander but his few appearances make it clear from the start what he is as opposed to the show where it takes a bit to see it.
I really like the book but having discovered the show first I’m going to wait before I read any further volumes. There were things in the show I absolutely did NOT see coming and I want to keep it that way.
