The vice president joins the orgy of the super heroes because that’s just his thing. But the people that brought him to the orgy have other plans of their own and want to use him. This book is intended for a mature audience. Parents beware.
I’m still not sure why I bought this comic book. Maybe the soft porn lure got to me. The problem is that if this is soft porn, this is bad soft porn. But I could tell that from a quick glance at the book’s interior. It doesn’t look good. The characters look like caricatures.
I still don’t understand all the subplots and who is trying to outfox who. Although I joined this new series with #1, I still don’t know what it’s purpose is about and why I should care about this comic book. That’s because the writer assumes that you have read the series from which this one spins off from, The Boys
. Well, I haven’t and in comic book writing, not assuming that your reader picks up your book for the first time is a capital sin. I should not have to go through years and volumes’ worth of material to figure out what is happening in the pages of this comic book.
