    The Deep's fate is revealed...
    And I haven't stopped laughing.

    Just found this SPOILER HEAVY review. If it's real, of course. Which it has no reason not to be.

    Sounds... dull. Incredibly dull. Ho-hum.

    Page 1 of 24: Yes! Final issue! I'm so excited I'm going to punctuate everything with an exclamation mark! Did a pigeon just shit on Hughie's sunglasses?

    Page 2 of 24: No, it wasn't a pigeon at all! It was a supe! Ha, ha! Hughie emits an unwarranted sense of self-satisfaction and confidence despite the fact everyone he knows in this city that he inexplicably continues to live in is dead, mostly owing to his own ineptitude! Fat hamster!

    Page 3 of 24: Ah, yes! I vaguely remember that promising arc about 9/11 that we read 4 or so years ago!

    Page 4 of 24: Hughie uses his 'The Boys' Club Card which allows him unlimited access to any place at any time with no need for any further explanation whatsoever!

    Page 5 of 24: Hughie somehow manages to avoid having the shit beaten out of him by some guys fitting a plaque and wearing fluorescent jackets! Hughie rolls his eyes at his own piss-poor attempt at creating a requiem for his teammates!

    Page 6 of 24: Stillwell comes for a formal meeting with Hughie! Without bodyguards! On a park bench! About three metres from the recently reconstructed Brooklyn Bridge!

    Page 7 of 24: Hughie talks! Stillwell talks a bit and looks like a disgruntled Jeremy Irons until Hughie gives him a baggie of drugs and he turns into Bambi!

    Page 8 of 24: Hughie demands that Stillwell personally rebuild the Flatiron, brick by brick! Stillwell is stung by a bee off-panel which causes his face to swell dramatically! Justice is served! Corporations are bad!


    Well, I look forward to reading the other two thirds of the final issue on Wednesday.

    I really don't know why Darrick wants to draw Hughie with a 'comfort' belly when he knows it will only make his drawing even sloooooooowwwweeerrrrrrr. there... I put a little emotion thing in to make it clear I am having a bit of a laugh. D'ya get me, company man? Are we on the level, Dynamite Guy?

    Fat Hughie rules NY and tells Vought Guy (drawn differently...AGAIN) to screw himself???????


    I am not going to like that.

    Quite so. As a fan of Proust's 'a la research du temps perdu' I for one would welcome a seven-volume cycle of resurrected thugs kicking corporate butt in literary slow-mo. D'you know... I'm going to let Ennis off the hook for letting Hughie blossom... but it looks like Stillwell is going to be thwarted rather than slaughtered... which I find rather unsatisfying. Unfortunately I'm going to be away when 72 comes out... will catch up with you guys later.

    crap. is hughie tryna be like mini butcher now? all witty and 2 steps ahead and whatnot? because if thats the case the previous comment above about stillwell being the the intimidation king wouldn't make much sense. unless the other previous comment above about characters doing complete 180's BECAUSE THE PLOT DICTATES IT. fuck man all I want is retard mal chemical and butcher to destroy stillwell. minus mcCrea artwork

    As for the "Darick's slow art" comment, please don't just make things up and then post them as "facts", that's what gives internet message boards a bad name. The Boys #72 was solicited as a November book and it's shipping mid-November:

    Maybe I should have flagged up the irony with a little flag to avoid confusion. I'm not sure if you've read many of the messages here, but I have been consistently complimentary about Darrick. Nevertheless, thank-you so much for trotting out the company line.

    Ah, yes, the old writing trick of changing a character's personality completely to serve the needs of the plot and speed up the narrative.

    Now, Hughie is a bad-ass. We did see some foreshadowing, when he griped out Monkey. That obviously prepared him to take on Stilwell.

    Yes, Stilwell. The guy who scares all his subordinates, who faced down HL time and again, even psychopath HL, who scared MM and even intimidated Butcher. That guy now gets his shinebox when Hughie demands.

    That's how you finish up a series!

    I meant its been a month and a half since the last issue. Another dreadful thought just dawned on me....what if we see a resurgence of McCrea artwork for stillwells death al la blacklander. *shudders*
