According to comic book gossip guru Rich Johnston over at Lying In The Gutters, Wildstorm's irreverent new series The Boys may have been delayed for this very reason:
"The Boys" from Wildstorm has been a rather aggressive book so far. Extreme gore, use of the c-word (that's 'c**t' by the way), extreme superhero hate, Simon Pegg, all that's missing is the sex.
I'm told that at San Diego months ago, Wildstorm staffers were talking up the completed art for "The Boys" #3, which featured a Teen Titans-esque team in an orgy complete with a rather explicit oral image…
"The Boys" #3 has just been delayed. I wonder why?"
Finding out that this book has been delayed, even for naughty content, really bums me out. I have really been enjoying Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's irreverent and dead funny look at fellas and a lady that form a team of sorts to take out the super heroes in their world. Showcasing a sense of humor that can only be Ennis-style, this book is wicked genius.
If you are an adult type reader and you have been looking for an excuse to try this book, do so, if for no other reason then to enjoy the dark and amusing stylings of Ennis and Robertson. They are the new team supreme.
DISCLAIMER: If you don't like naughty, Vertigo-style humor, you will not enjoy this. Buy DC's fantastic series Manhunter instead.
