Rate this:
Mind reeling from recent events in The Boys, Wee Hughie heads home to Auchterladle - the semi-idyllic Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together after two years of unimaginable chaos. But our hero's luck has always been more cloud than silver lining, and the familiar surroundings he craves are not all they might be. You can go home again, but with old pals warped beyond recognition and strangers in town up to no good, whether or not you should is another matter entirely.

It's un-compelling and even painful at times and adds nothing to the storyline. Garth Ennis can usually pull off a good yarn even (filler) if it isn't going anywhere, but "Wow", this really blew. Even the introduction of the CIA operative who recruited Butcher couldn't save the narrative. There's no pony at the bottom of this pile.
