Wee Hughie visits The Legend to get the background on The Boys, their history, their personalities, and their agenda, and to find out why the Twin Towers are still standing, but the Brooklyn Bridge is down. I liked that we get to see the relationship between Hughie and Annie develop, but most of this volume (issues 15-22) feels like Talking Heads and we're just fed (essential) information in a less than organic manner. Still, the characters and the storyline is interesting enough for me to want to continue the series. ( )

Too much back-story all of a sudden. ( )

D-I'm really enjoying these books... and not just because Wee Hughie is a dead-ringer for B. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The Boys (Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman and The Female) are a CIA-backed team dedicated to preventing superheroes from abusing their power. In this third volume of their adventures, each has an agenda. Frenchie and the Female are mixing it up with the Mafia, Mother's Milk goes to see his mom, Annie January wants a word with God, and Butcher has yet another ghastly tryst with CIA Director Rayner. Meanwhile, the Legend offers to tell Hughie everything he wants to know about The Boys--all Hughie has to do is take a walk with the dead.
