The Boys 46 (September 2010)

762655Butcher gets around to setting Hughie up for the whole truth about Annie, which implies he’s also messing with Mother’s Milk’s flask, but there’s also a big reveal about Maeve.

It all of a sudden makes sense why Ennis has always been so careful with her character–he’s got major plans for her. Or at least minor interesting ones.

It’s another of those Butcher and Hughie talking issues, just like the old days. At one point Hughie even mentions they haven’t had a long talk for a while.

There’s just not a lot of content to it. There’s a funny moment for the Female, but otherwise it’s just exposition. Mallory–the mystery Boys member who’s never been seen on panel–shows up for a second in the flashback, so does the Legend, but it’s all just fill in. Ennis probably could have done it in dialogue.

It’s fine, just underwhelming.
