The opening volume of The Boys had some shocking gratuity and a subtle moral message. Volume two switches these around in that the shocks and profanity have almost disappeared and the morality and complex and wordy story has come to the fore. This seems an abrupt change of pace. We learn little of our established characters in favour of telling two self-contained mysteries. The first is a murder mystery which unsubtly pokes a finger at how homophobic our society is and second is a lament on the passing of Mother Russia and an extended cock joke. The two stories are quite bold statements but feel like a detour, allowing us to catch our breath after the first traumatic instalment.

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.

Having only read the first graphic novel of The Boys only a week or two ago I didn't need to wait too long to get to this one.

I found the characters, new and old to be just as good as in the first one and I loved both story lines in this one too. The one complaint I did have was that I didn't enjoy the art work by the additional artist they brought in for the last two comics of the series. I'm not sure why they had to do this and the art work is in no way terrible however I did find it a bit of a distraction so I will be deducting a star for this.

I also felt that they could have done more with Little Nina's character (the bad guy) in the second storyline too but it didn't take away from the storyline. I just would have liked to have seen her in action.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable read for fans of The Boys. If you haven't read The Boys yet I suggest you start at the beginning though.

This is another truly excellent installment of The Boys by Garth Ennis. Just as brilliant and funny as the original and another absolutely essential purchase. Rest assured if you liked the first volume then you will lap this up too.

I am a big fan of Garth's run on Hellblazer, Preacher and Hitman but this strikes me as a retread of some of his older ideas.

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.

The story goes truly international as they head to Russia in this one. Plenty of macabre deaths and darkly funny story lines & some great characters. Ennis writes the good stuff!
