WHEN SOMEONE GIVES YOU A WEAPON, SON: YOU USE IT! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line. And someone will. Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman and The Female are The Boys: a CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most lethal force on Earth- superpower. Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them- sometimes- need to be taken out of the picture. That's when you call in The Boys. The war is over and the world is saved. The supes have been beaten down so far they'll never get up again. So why would anyone want one hundred and eighteen metric tons of the only substance on earth that can kill them all stone dead? Bad days start coming thick and fast, as the Boys are caught in the last throes of the battle they were recruited to fight so long ago. Hughie, all on his own and out of luck, finds himself walking down one last bloody trail- and the truth he finds waiting for him at the end of it will be nothing short of shattering. Billy Butcher's vengeance comes full circle, in this twelfth and final entry in the story of The Boys. This volume collects issues 66-72 of the hit series The Boys by Garth Ennis, Russ Braun and Darick Robertson, and features all of the covers by Darick Robertson and pin-ups by Russ Braun, John McCrea, Carlos Ezquerra, Petr Snejbjerg and John Higgins.
