For anyone who thinks graphic novels are for kids...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Boys: The Name of the Game v. 1 (Paperback)
Pick this up. Read it. Be disgusted.
If you think reading graphic novels is for kids, I challenge you to pick this up and not be horrified. The Boys enters a whole new level of disturbing. Whether it's a dog watching 2 people go doggy style or the innards of a persons head displayed on floor, it's definitely going to shock you.
The story starts with quite a revelation: Superheroes are b******s. It's an unusual take on a popular comic book topic. The Boys are basically out to rid the world of Superheroes - the collateral damage they don't take responsibility for is too damaging to just forgive. If you're looking for something a little bit unusual, a little bit different and generally disturbing, give this a try.
FYI: I was looking for things like The Preacher, Judge Dredd and Hellblazer which are all a bit dark and different. This is definitely gruesome.
