Depois de ler saio muito satisfeito de ter despendido meu tempo e devo dizer que é certeira em suas criticas e muito bem escrita. Encontrei dificuldade com o vocabulário por não ser um falante nato e achei um pouco estranhas algumas proporções dos desenhos.

That's not to say that this comic isn't offensive. I think most things are, to someone, but at least in 'The Boys' the problems that are flagged up in a lot of comics- be they the day-to-day impracticalities of certain super-powers or the impossible egos of the characters themselves- are effectively lampooned and mocked mercilessly. There is a real dark humour to these comics, brought to life through some very dark characters, dealing with some very difficult circumstances. It is also well drawn and distinctive, and provides an interesting new look at the concept of a super-group, as well as pointing out the obvious flaws in the things that we have all held dear in the genre for a very long time.
Overall, these comics and characters will not appeal to everyone. They are not intended for children (or even adults with the general maturity of children), but they are interesting, thought provoking, and genuinely entertaining to boot.
It has a slow, but shocking, start as we are introduced to the team and what they are up against through the induction of its newest member. There are lots of references to things that have gone before and people who are no longer with us. This builds up our interest as we are drip-fed enough information to keep us guessing. The characters are intriguing and the superheroes are less than heroic, making them easy to deplore. As the storyline progresses the methods the Boys must use get less wholesome and it does make you wonder if the watchers will become as bad as the watched.
The art is superb with great facial expressions as there is a lot of shock and disgust to portray. The depravity mentioned is frequent but not pornographic. It manages to horrify and titillate in equal measure as there are enough visual clues to make your dirty mind run riot.
This is a good start to what promises to be a grand spectacle of a story that is both shockingly entertaining and subtly thought provoking. Thumbs Up!
If you think reading graphic novels is for kids, I challenge you to pick this up and not be horrified. The Boys enters a whole new level of disturbing. Whether it's a dog watching 2 people go doggy style or the innards of a persons head displayed on floor, it's definitely going to shock you.
The story starts with quite a revelation: Superheroes are b******s. It's an unusual take on a popular comic book topic. The Boys are basically out to rid the world of Superheroes - the collateral damage they don't take responsibility for is too damaging to just forgive. If you're looking for something a little bit unusual, a little bit different and generally disturbing, give this a try.
FYI: I was looking for things like The Preacher, Judge Dredd and Hellblazer which are all a bit dark and different. This is definitely gruesome.
It's rude, crude and downright nasty at times but totally entertaining. Totally not suitable for kids
It's a great play on what would happen you made DCesque perfect moral heroes totally human, fallible, vain and corrupt. With absolute power corrupting absolutely, the 'supes' here never care about the collateral damage only public image and merchandising for corporate masters.
'The Boys' are there to keep the supes in line.
If you enjoy and haven't read Preacher yet, go there next.
All the superheroes that are targeted in this book are somewhat emotionally questionable. Imagine one of your friends, or someone in your work place who is quiet, and doesnt really seem to understand social situations.
Now imagine that they have superpowers and talk like they think a superhero should talk.
Now imagine that they start to feel very cocky and dont have any empathy skills to fall back on and start acting like a coke'd up idiot.
These are the superheroes of Garth Ennis' world, so it makes it alright when Ennis' anti-heroes carry out scene stealing scenes like punching through rib cages by accident.
I'll let you decide the rest when you read it
If you're a fan of Garth Ennis's other works you'll love this series
DC comics refused to publish this graphic novel...and you will see why, but its much more than strong violence and sex - the story line is fantastic.
I ordered this and read it the day it arrived, I've now ordered the next 5. If you read the first get ready to part with more money.
