3.0 out of 5 stars Meandering, 29 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Boys: Highland Laddie v. 8 (Paperback)
Highland Laddie almost seems to be intended as the polar opposite to Herogasm, which was brimming with over the top sex, violence and general depravity. In contrast there is very little here. That's not a complaint, but it does wear a little thin over the course of the whole book with little going on but Hughie's unrelenting self analysis and a few mildly entertaining riffs on the Famous Five/Hardy Boys.
With the exception of one (admittedly good) twist at the end, not a great deal seems to change over the course of this miniseries and very little of consequence actually happens. For a piece that is primarily focused on characterisation it doesn't quite seem to work.
That said however it is still worth a read- the dialogue is well written and the artwork as always is excellent, but I do feel that this is still one of the weaker entries in the series.
