“The Boys is an American creator-owned comic book series, written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. It was originally published by Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment.
The series is set between 2006-2008 in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series’ universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as “The Boys”, is charged with monitoring the superhero community.”

Bill then turns on his team and starts to pick them off one by one leading to a climax few fans could have seen coming. Fans might be ready to cry at the end of this epic tale of evil vs evil for the greater good. The political and real life consequences of living in this world of Superheroes, corporate Goons, Spies, and the government officials,or as in Wee Hughie a great guy fighting to keep hold of who he is.
“As the police approach the two, Butcher is forced to use Hughie for one last task. Going from calm to professional to downright sinister in the span of 3 pages, Butcher manipulates Hughie into doing something neither Hughie or anyone else would think him capable of. “The Boys” #71 may not be a perfect issue – it is, after all, essentially all dialogue. But it also represents a highpoint of of one of the best series in modern comics”

“On wrapping up “The Boys” and why writing the end felt like murder: It feels like just the right time for it to end. The story’s worked out exactly as I wanted it to, couldn’t be happier in that regard. It’s bittersweet because with Butcher, with Billy Butcher, we’re talking about probably my favorite character I’ve ever created”
