    I guess they figured Faruza Balk and Helena Bonham Carter weren't available.

    The Boys does indeed kick ass. One of the funniest books out there...but i've always been an Ennis fan.

    Love SAUSAGE and the Glorious Five Year Plan...wooot!!!!

    Try <a href="http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=the+boys+ennis+robertson&btnG=Search+News">GoogleNews</a>.

    I find it points me to a lot of websites I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

    I cancelled after about four issues because I thought this was Ennis treading water. This idea was done first and done best in Marshall Law.

    I thought Preacher was great for about the first 50 issues and then became a self indulgent love letter to the central characters. Can't deny that is showed great ambition which is what I found missing from The Boys. My own favourites from Ennis are his Hellblazer run, the Unknown Soldier mini series and the completely underrated Pride And Joy. The latter had none of his shock tactics or gross out humour, just real people facing real problems and resolving them by talking (OK, after lots of shooting). HIghly recommended.

    Well, Preacher was always about the friendship/love/hate between the three leads. Everything else was window dressing in the end.

    Sorry, I meant that the writer fell in love with his characters and that's always fatal. I prefer some authorial distance.

    Do try Pride and Joy though.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    I am a total sucker for Ennis's sense of humour. I loved preacher ,one of the main reasons I loved it was the way Ennis can find what is beautiful and ugly about America
    better than almost anyone else. Now that someone said how the Boys was the replacment for Hitman it all makes sense to me.

    The boys would be worth picking up for Love Sausage alone.
