The Boys #1

Anyone else read the first issue of Ennis' The Boys? I'm not sure what i feel about it... I read through it twice and kind of left it with a bit of a "meh" feeling... though i do think this is one of those comics that will take me several issues to like or dislike. Hard to imagine out man Ennis totally shitting the bed so i still have hopes... and damn, i haven't seen Robertson's art since i read the first 3 Preacher trades last year... Why did i stop reading Preacher again? Hmmm... Maybe i need to pick up Vol. 4.

That's a good question, sir: why DID you stop reading Preacher? :)

You probably mean Steve Dillon on Preacher - Robertson did the art of Transmetropolitan...

but Preacher is awesome!

Oops you're right... sorry i brain farted. but damn doesn't the artwork in Boys seem SO reminiscent to Dillon's work in Preacher? I was having flashbacks...

PS Preacher and Transmet are both good :)

Did you see the trailer that Robertson made? Pretty cool. The concept for this book looks really great, I'll pick it up despite your lukewarm review:)...

Ryan - The concept for this is right our your (our) alley. I didn't mean to totally crap on it... just to say i'm not sure how i feel about it yet. I'll be with it a few more issues for sure... DEF let me know what you think though.

PS i'm about to post a very cool panel from The Boys ;)

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
