with, not to mention the return of an old and unexpected enemy who finally,
incredibly, has come into his own. Meanwhile, on the Seven’s floating headquarters, a flying lesson goes badly awry…

In issues #52-55: “Barbary Coast” — Hughie travels out west to finally meet
Lieutenant-Colonel Greg Mallory, the man who started The Boys. All kinds of
secrets await our hero, beginning with the terrible story of the first supes to see action in World War Two. When the revelations cease, will Hughie return, or walk away from the team forever?

In issues #56-59: “The Big Ride” — The countdown to the end begins, as Jack from Jupiter takes one step beyond… or does he? Hughie’s triumphant return is not all he’d hoped for, but Butcher has bigger fish to fry. And The Boys meet the mysterious Doctor Peculiar…
