More great fiction in the grand tradition of the Boys - Also, Kindle option is surprisingly good
Reviewed in the United States on July 17, 2016
The Boys is not a comic for everyone, it's brutal, very dark (at time appalling) - But it's a brave story that (dare I say it?) makes one think. Not only about the political and social realities the comic speaks of (mainly, if humans really did posses super powers these humans would not be moral and kind) but also about capitalism, American history, what is the meaning of love and friendship and also - just how important sex is? Don't get me wrong, this is a still a comic book and so things that would be horrible in a film (human face on a pizza? A dog that is trained to do...er...special things?) are in abundance. But for the constant reader this too will be a must. Unlike other people who took the time to review the book I won't go into details om what happens nor will I pass judgment on the writer and artists. Garth Ennis, in my opinion, is a great story teller. And I assume that if you're thinking of buying the ninth volume in a comic you know more or less what it is you're getting into. I WILL say that this is the first comic I bought on kindle and while the black and white take out a lot of the pleasure of reading comics the immediate delivery and the reading method (you "move" from panel to panel, at times moving within one panel in a very original way) left me impressed. Whoever developed this method cared about comics! If only the color issue would be solved I'd consider reading more comics on Kindle.
