Each instalment of this series leaves you wanting more, looking forward to re-reading this over a long weekend in the summer sun.
believable characters is the key to the story, once you suspend you disbelief to include supes in your world you really can't expect the reader to then buy into unrealistic characters as well or ridiculous plot driving events just to get to the money shot.

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.

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.

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!

If you're reading this and you don't already own vol's 1-11 then I urge you to check them out first, this is one of the greatest comic series ever. If you already have the others then you're going to get this one anyway, but rest assured this is an awesome ending to what has been a stunning series.

With the spin-offs 'Butcher Baker' and 'Highland Laddie' aside (which I thought felt a little flat when judged by the extremely high standard of the main title); Garth Ennis has created a stone cold classic in The Boys. You may have thought the story was pretty much over after the explosive events of vol 11, but Ennis has one more rip-roaring ride left for fans of The Boys and this is every bit the fitting conclusion the series deserved. Funny, dark, shocking, exciting... Simply excellent.

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.

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!!
