The Boys omnibus 2 – Frenchie and the Female are up to something nasty with the Mafia, Mother’s Milk goes to see his mom, Annie January wants a word with God himself, and Butcher enjoys yet another ghastly tryst with CIA Director Rayner. The Legend, meanwhile, offers to tell Hughie everything he wants to know about The Boys , All Hughie has to do is take a walk with the dead. All is not well with mysterious millionaire John Godolkin’s band of misfits. Silver Kincaid, one of the original G-Men, has just committed suicide in the most public and grotesque way imaginable. That’s not good news for Vought-American’s number one franchise, with G-Force, G-Coast, G-Style, G-Wiz, the G-Brits and the G-Nomads all depending on their slice of the G-pie. There’s far too much at stake for anyone to go poking around the G-Mansion now. Who knows what dirty secrets might be waiting down there in the dark?
The “Supers” here are egotistical, vindictive, sex-crazed, drug-addicted, or beholden to corporate agendas, and so there needs to be a force that can keep them in check. That’s where the Boys (and The Female) come in, but this ragtag group might not be all that different from the Supers. It’s funny, action-packed, and comes close to crossing the line of obscenity.
