The Boys has been focusing on origin stories as of late, and as soon as the Frenchman and The Female origins are complete, Garth Ennis and John McCrea will kick off a new story arc, called “The Innocents” beginning with issue #40.Â Issue #39 will be a prologue issue called “What I Know”.
“Issue 39 begins with everybody happy. Hughie and Annie are blissfully in love, MM’s enjoying some R&R, Frenchie’s even making some progress with the Female’s more extreme psychotic tendencies, and Butcher’s doing what he likes most: digging up all kinds of awful dirt on people. Twenty-two pages later it’s all starting to unravel, and what everyone thought they knew is overturned in the worst possible way,” said Ennis in a prepared statement.
Sounds like things are going to get really bad for The Boys.Â If you want a good laugh, you might want to check out The Boys #37, which Matthew reviewed on the most recent Major Spoilers Podcast.
