Issue 23 - The Boys: Garth Ennis Hates Superheroes


On this episode, the gang reviews more edgelord nonsense and we’re really sick of it, but just can’t stop doing it. This is the last time, we promise.

The Boys by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson –

In this episode, we delve back into a ultra violent and profanity filled world, but this time we’re in Ennis’ playground instead of Millar’s. Is it way different? Well…not really. Sly (and only Sly) is sponsored by Simon Pegg this week. Ryan’s so desensitized that he actually starts to like this edgelord nonsense, but everyone else stays strong. Darryl gets so mad at his friend’s daughter that he draws pictures of himself punching a gun. And Phil teaches Sly the true meaning of a stool sample. Also if you like permanent guests like Darryl, play Final Fantasy Tactics.
