Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Boys: Volume Two, The (2007) written by Garth Ennis

art: Darick Robertson

The main story here concerns a character named Tek-Knight, basically the equivalent of The Batman. He has no superpowers, is a millionaire and has a secret cave. It starts off with him going to a psychiatrist, in full-costume, trying to figure out why he can't stop having sex with things. Not even a watermelon is safe.

there's also SwingWing, the superhero who supports gays, and it looks like he's responsible for a guy falling off the top of a building. Swingwing also used to be Tek-Knight's sidekick before he went solo, and there might be a connection there.

Hughie, still in training as the newest member, is introduced to The Legend, a former comic book publisher/creator who knows the truth about all the super-powered people.

He and Butcher have known each other for a long time.

Then The Boys are sent to Russia to stop a government takeover by a diminutive villainess who has created a hundred and fifty "superheroes" of her own to help her take over the country. They get the help of a former Soviet Superhero who went by the name of "The Love Sausage" (you understand why once you see him in tights). These newly created super-beings have a failsafe built-in, however, that is their explosive down fall. it's SCANNER city!

As with the first TPB this volume of THE BOYS had me alternating between saying, "oh, shit" and laughing hysterically.
