Cover by DARICK ROBERTSON
Christmas 1944 sees Captain Greg Mallory safely in reserve, far from the front line with Nazi Germany. A good time to rest and refit, to recover from the horrors of war. Not such a good time for a unit of very special soldiers- backed by the Vought-American-Consolidated corp- to show up looking for combat experience. Hughie gets a war story he’ll never forget, as the Battle Of The Bulge begins with a bang… The Boys #53, part two of Barbary Coast.

THE BOYS: VOL 8 HIGHLAND LADDIE TRADE PAPERBACK
144 pages FC • $19.99 • Mature
Written by GARTH ENNIS
Art by JOHN McCREA, KEITH BURNS
Cover by DARICK ROBERTSON
Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother’s Milk, The Frenchman and The Female are The Boys: a CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most lethal force on Earth- superpower. Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them- sometimes- need to be taken out of the picture.

That’s when you call in The Boys.

Mind reeling from cataclysmic events in New York, Wee Hughie heads home to Auchterladle- the semi-idyllic Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together after two years of unimaginable chaos. But our hero’s luck has always been more cloud than silver lining, and the familiar surroundings he craves are not all they might be. Old pals are warped beyond recognition, strangers in town are up to no good, and a figure from Hughie’s recent past has come back to resolve some unfinished business. You can go home again- but whether or not you should is another matter entirely…

This volume collects issues 1-6 of the hit mini-series, The Boys: Highland Laddie by Garth Ennis and John McCrea, and features all of the covers by The Boys co-creator, Darick Robertson.
