Or – “Well, That Cover Is A Bit Unpleasant, Ain’t It?” Harry Chapin once wrote a little ditty called “Thirty Thousand Pounds Of Bananas”, the tale of a young truck driver whose brakes give out on the downhill side while hauling the titular load.  As the Boys picks up steam on it’s own race to the finish, I am reminded of a particular lyric from that song: And he said “God, make it a dream!” as he rode his last ride down. I’m pretty sure that Wee Hughie Campbell can relate…

Or – “A Mustelid Ate The President’s Face…” It’s been a while since we checked in with our friends in the Flatiron Building, and the latest updates from Boys-ville are not encouraging:  Hughie continues to waffle, Butcher’s control has been questioned, and Mother’s Milk has had a horrible revelation about his former family…  We’re on the downhill slide, and war seems inevitable.  The only question is:  What will set it off?

Or – “Two Guys Talking Can Be As Tense As A Fistfight…” One of the highlights of the early arcs of The Boys came when Wee Hughie sat down with the man known only as The Legend (any resemblance to comic figures past or present is probably intentional) for a history lesson about superhumans.  The last couple of issues have given us even more depth and world-building as Greg Mallory explains the events that led up to the formation of The Boys themselves…  It’s been a bloody story, but it ain’t over yet.

Or – “Maybe You Gave Grandpa The Keys, Right Before The Battle Of Verdun!” Hughie’s “vacation” didn’t really clear his head, and it didn’t fix either his life or his relationship with Annie.  In fact, the only positive in the whole mess was his introduction to the former commanding officer of The Boys, Colonel Mallory, who has quite a few interesting bits of history to share with young Master Campbell…
