Well that was an unexpected ending to a superb series. Unexpected but brilliant I might add. If you've enjoyed the rest of the series as much as I have (even 9 & 10) then you will enjoy this. All great things mut come to an end. If your stuck for something to read I recommend irredeemable and transmetropolitan highly!

But it finished last volume? There was a neat little conclusion and everything. Well a slightly clever/ slightly clunky finale. So this is to tie up all the loose ends and give us a lovely happy ending right? Well this is Garth Ennis so what do you think?

This is the book that ends it all with a bang - a blaze of glory. Now that the tale is told what will become of the characters? How will he make sure that neither he nor anyone else starts pimping out The Boys as happened with the Crossed title Ennis created? It won't be pleasant but it will be very shrewd.

This is an astonishingly good book. Because we have invested all this time in these characters and in this world we care about it so much. Ennis recognises this and knows just how to stick the knife in. This is one of the most tense and gut-wrenching reads ever as all bets are off. There is humour, there is genuine emotion, and a few political points to be scored to boot.

The art is great with the ensemble delivering a top notch performance to match the riveting story. There are some outstanding portraits and expressions that really grab you and deliver the emotional right-hook this book is all about.

This is the finest of all the books in the series. Saving the best till last this is the epitome of a Double Thumbs Up!!

This series is by my standards one of the best maxi-series to come out of the industry since the 90's. Throughout Ennis has developed and fleshed out the well thought out cast of characters, making them even more gripping and sympathetic than they first appeared, through wacky and interesting scenarios. While that all appeared to come to a staisfying conclusing in Ennis's 11th installment ('Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men') of the series he smashes out of the park with this final coda. Character elements that are hinted throughout the series come to full fruition in a bloody, brutal and harsh end that pulls yat your heart strings more than a Whedon finale.

I always liked the concept, someone would have to keep the Capes (only super-human after all) and their exploiters in order and it would never be pretty. I feel sorry for Butcher and Hughie but it seems like that had to be the ending - but like the title "that's all they were supposed to do" and they went a little far.

Graphics and Storyline up to standard.

Format: Paperback
This is the final instalment of Ennis' The Boys, finishing off one of my favourite comics of all times. People have criticised this series for dragging out, me included as Highland Laddie and Butcher, Baker did feel a bit pointless. As I have already said Highland Laddie was pointless apart from meeting Mallory, and Vol. 10 showed a pretty obvious background of Butcher who I have decided has been one of the greatest anti-heroes ever.

It's difficult to explain how I feel about this Vol. without giving anything away, and as it can't be brought from Amazon yet, I don't want anything ruined for anyone. Vol. 12 finishes the entire story arc, giving an actual ending to all characters that we've known and learned to love. As expected from the end of the last Vol. Butcher goes off alone for full retaliation for the death of his wife, and as we know that she brought him back from the brink, made him care again, without her he would be nothing, blah, blah, blah (it's such an obvious development to the character that it is a little disappointing). As Butcher sets his final plans in motion, Hughie has no choice but to confront him along with the rest of the Boys.

I picked the book up and finished it 30min later as I couldn't put it, wanting to know how they finish the series. I love how they finish Butcher, a little obvious once you get half way through, and one of those confrontations that everyone would want to be different, but Ennis does as only it can really end, and Vought continue in this series as the slimy corporations that you despise. If you have read the rest of The Boys then you're going to read this, it is an excellent ending to what I have enjoyed reading, and have to admit, for someone who loves thinking I can make a better ending I must admit this couldn't really end any other way.

To say a few words about the series itself. Not bad, not bad at all. It sagged a bit in the middle but the last 3 volumes were great I thought and worth reading if only to close the story. And a great ending it was. Some truly shocking moments, not for the faint hearted, it's no Preacher but still good.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you've read volume 11 then you won't be surprised to hear that volume 12 is an epilogue of sorts - but there's still some surprises in store. Because while Butcher never expected to survive his encounter with The Homelander, it didn't stop him from putting plans into place for dealing with the remaining supes. While ethnic cleansing is a step too far for Hughie, how can get the better of Butcher? And who will the rest of The Boys side with?

So despite the new twist to the story, it's still mainly a tying up of loose ends & seeing everyone get what they deserve (or don't, in some cases). Anyone who thought some of the previous volumes were slow may not like this one but I was totally hooked by the character-driven story. It's very satisfying to see the series come to its logical conclusion & for Ennis to give us full closure instead of fashionably tacking on an ambiguous ending. Highland Laddie notwithstanding, it's a great end to a mature & thought-provoking series.
