MEDIA REVIEWS

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Wee Hughie is a sweet, moralistic Scotsman, desperately in love with his girlfriend. After she is killed during a battle between a careless superhero and his nemesis, Wee Hughie is recruited to work alongside the Boys, a CIA-backed squad tasked with keeping the world's superpowered population under control. Soon Wee Hughie discovers that many of the greatest heroes are secretly vicious and depraved, driven to extreme behavior by their celebrity status and often protected by corporate interests and political operatives who wield even more power than men and women capable of bending steel with their bare hands. Author Ennis (Sara) and illustrator Robertson (Transmetropolitan: Book One) revel in graphic sex and violence. And while their often juvenile sense of humor may keep some readers at bay, those willing to stick with the series will discover that the more extreme elements of the story juxtapose fascinatingly with a deeply moralistic, human, and even romantic point of view. VERDICT This omnibus volume collects issues 1-15 of the continuing story line that inspired the highly anticipated upcoming Amazon Prime streaming series and should see high interest from readers.
