Vol 7 of The Boys is a softback collection of issues 39 to 47 of this ongoing series. It's set in a world very much like ours and examines what would happen if ordinary people were 'blessed' with super powers. The 'heroes' of this brilliantly realised universe are flawed, corruptible, weak, self-centred and entirely human. Some of them are worse: morally depraved and super-human. Writer Garth Ennis has played with debunking the myth of the superhero in previous graphic and comic series: in The Boys he rips it apart and leaves it spluttering in the gutter.
New readers are strongly advised to start at the beginning if you possibly can. You need to understand the back story which brings us to the events in Vol 7. The Boys are society's counterbalance to out-of-control heroes and the military-industrial corporations which pull their puppet strings. The Boys themselves are misfits who walk on the shadowy side of the street. Their newest recruit is about to learn a very unpalatable truth about his relationship -- and his reaction to the truth will govern what happens next as the heroes' figurehead seems bent on starting a revolution...
The Boys is gripping, gritty and unpleasant at times. It's violent, sexually explicit and extremely, appallingly funny. The dialogue and characterisations are sublime. The artwork can be subtle and beautiful, or in-yer-face like the blunt end of a ship. The Boys is one of the best graphic series to have been produced in the last decade, and Vol 7 lives up to the promise of earlier episodes. Definitely worth taking the time to read and absorb from its very beginnings.
The ending of this chapter leaves us hanging on several threads, too...

After reading the third volume of the Boys I thought that they couldn't make we wish the next volume was out even more, but then I read Innocents.

This volume shows the fallout of Butcher finding out that Hughie is dating Starlight, and the fallout is brilliant. MM also starts looking into matters as he starts to distrust Butcher, saving Hughie's life in the process, but the best writing in this vol is when Hughie is shown how Starlight got her job in the Seven. Furthermore The Homelander begins his move for power, gathering the other Supes together leaving a cliffhanger that had me kicking myself that I had brought this vol the moment it came out.

Garth Ennis has done amazing work with this series, this is the first piece of work I have read of his, and I must admit that it has hooked me to his work, but I do fear that the rest of his work won't be as good as this. The boys have not disappointed me so far, and though the next vol is a bit soft it is a set that had to be made as it sets up what we have been waiting to find out. I can't really find anything that annoyed me about this vol, the OTT Garth Ennis usually sticks in these books isn't too much, he makes characters that you love to hate, and others that you hope dies painfully - and knowing Garth Ennis they will - the confrontation between Hughie and Starlight is great, and I think every fan will agree with me and find they feel sorry for both of them as they are good people brought to the lowest mankind can sink. Hats off to Garth Ennis for an amazing piece of writing that reaches the heights of Alan Moore and Frank Millar.

As anyone who has read Watchmen can tell you, just because you're a superhero it doesn't mean that you can't be a total arse and a serious danger to humanity. Garth Ennis' solution to this issue is The Boys, a covert CIA black ops team of very dangerous people - Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie [yes, the Simon Pegg thing is intentional], Mother's Milk, The Frenchman and The Female - tasked with keeping the masked deviants under control. The controversial and hugely popular series, written entirely by Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson, debuted in 2006 and will hit the fiftieth issue mark in January 2011. The Boys Vol.7: The Innocents collects issues 39 to 47 of the series.

The collection begins with "What I Know", a single-issue story in which Billy Butcher discovers Wee Hughie's relationship with Starlight [of The Seven fame]. Butcher is, rightly, unwilling to believe that Hughie is a double-agent in league with The Seven and so, after consulting with The Legend, sends him undercover to observe a joke of a superhero team called Super Duper. Meanwhile, back at Vought American headquarters, Jess Bradley is made privy to information about a shocking incident from The Homelander's past.

"The Innocents" is a multi-issue story-arch originally contained in issues 40 to 43. Wee Hughie is on assignment surveilling Super Duper, a team of earnest and incredibly naïve teenagers from the distant future. Now Super Duper may seem the typical vanilla 1950s style superheroes but, since this is being written by Garth Ennis, the real situation is far more twisted than that and, aside from their dodgy super-names (Auntie Sis, Bobby Badoing, Ladyfold, Stool Shadow, Klanker, The Black Hole, and Kid Camo), there is something bizarrely screwed-up and unfortunate about each of them.
