The_Boys_Vol_1_The_Name_Of_The_GameA few post back talked about the Humble Bundle that had 25 digital trade paperback.  Twelve of those were for The Boys.  With the show based off the comic out now, The Boys, what to give these a read.  Couldn’t pass up the deal of a bit over $20.00 got all the comics.  Have read the first volume.  Was a bit surprised there they went with the story.  It is nothing like I ever ever read or seeing in a comic.  Considering the books started it’s run in 2006.  It pushes pretty hard on the violence and sexuality.  I don’t have a problem with it just shocked it even got published.  Now to read the next volume.

humble_bundleHave gotten games and bought one thing from the Humble Bundle Store over the years.  There other part of their site which the started out with is the Bundle part. These bundles can be pretty much anything.  Like games, programs, books and comics.  The ideas you pay a little bit and unlock some items.  Pay even more and get more.  They recently had one that had all 12 volumes of The Boys trade paperbacks as 13 other trades.  This one had my interest because I seen the trailer for The Boys show on Amazon Video.  It looks like a crazy over the top superhero show were the superheroes are not the hero’s people think they are.  At that point didn’t know any thing about the comics.  So jumped at this bundle.  for a bit over $20.00 Canadian got all these trades digital.  Have started reading the first trade and am liking it a lot.  Thinking they might make good quick reviews for I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry,
