The Boys 10 (September 2007)

Robertson really drops the ball this issue. I mean, Ennis still gets some bounce out of it, but Robertson’s art is so lazy I went back to the credits page to make sure it’s him. He’s really loose with his lines, his perspective and his placement. The Female gets lost at the beginning and I wasn’t even sure the dog was along.

Hughie comes into his own, however, which is a nice sequence. Art could’ve been better. Ennis gets on a soapbox–or puts Hughie on one–about prejudice and goes a little too far. He almost makes it convincingly part of the story, but pushes too much. It still works, especially given the ending with Butcher.

There’s a hilarious postscript with TekKnight and it makes up for a lot of the issue’s problems. Or not, actually. Ennis’s script for it is superb, save the PSA. Robertson just got lazy.
