Still reeling from the events of last issue, Hughie follows his boss to Washington DC, where the US military struggles to throw a ring of steel around the Capitol.

Billy Butcher goes off to meet his destiny, in the penultimate part of Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men.

“Remember when “The Boys” was just some frivolous fun? This issue will transport you back to those salad days and make you laugh while you cringe. It’s not taking itself too seriously, and yet it’s still pushing the grand narrative forward.” – Comic Book Resources

“Now this is what I’ve needed. Finally, Butcher and Hughie are back together. This is what makes this book great. The interaction between these two is priceless.” – A Comic Book Blog

“The Boys is worth the pick up almost every month especially if your looking to spice up your steady diet of superhero with something a little bit more superhero/indy.” – Tres Komikeros

Mysteriously transported to 19th Century Europe, Vampirella must team with Jonathan Harker and his band of vampire slayers to navigate a familiar, but twisting narrative in order to track down Dracula. But who, or what, is behind this strange temporal loop that’s ensnared them, or the evolving, shifting storyline they appear destined to follow?  From the smoking battlefields and impaled victims of Vlad Dracul’s Wallachia to the unsuspecting underbelly of modern-day New York City, these two vampiric titans cross paths.  Hunting like enemies, warring like lovers scorned, each seeking to break free of the tragic destiny that’s ensnared them both… or die trying!

WE FOUND EACH OTHER, BILLY.
In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line. And someone will. 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.

He could have been a very different man. Billy Butcher, leader of The Boys, once had a chance at another life entirely- when the love of a good woman pulled him aside from his dreadful path of violence and despair. This is the story of Billy and Becky, told by the man himself: from the backstreets of London’s East End to the carnage of the Falklands War, from the heights of love to the depths of tragedy. And when he’s done, he’ll be ready… to finish things once and for all.

This volume collects issues 1-6 of the hit mini-series, The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and features all of the covers by Darick Robertson.
