Move along, nothing to see here…
Yes, Mr. Garth Ennis is up to it again. Or is it his partner in crime, Derick Robertson? In the end, it doesn’t really matter, does it? Someone, probably on a conservative, faux-news cable network, is going to get a hold of this and run with it.
It is the cover to The Boys #44 by Mr. Ennis and Mr. Robertson. Beyond that, I don’t even know what it is, to be honest. It is a superhero of some sort on a cross. Sure, The Boys is a great ride, tearing up modern superhero tropes while telling a wickedly good story. But why the cross?
#43 comes out next week. It is the last story of the current arc, The Innocents. I know that somehow this next issue sets up the next mini-series, Highland Laddie.
What the next storyline is about after The Innocents, I have no clue. It is called, Believe. Hence the big JC in a cape. I am guessing that he is made of wood, and not really non-caucasian, but what do I know?
Well, I guess I do know it is bound to offend somebody. That is OK. I haven’t heard anyone complaining about comic books since the Captain America #602 brouhaha. This should be fun.
