100 Issues Ago April 2011

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?

Having recently watch the entire series of The Boys on Amazon, I figured now was as good a time as any to highlight the original series.

The issue above was focused on Wee Hughie’s conversation with Greg Mallory, the founder of The Boys, specifically his first encounter with the Vought American heroes during World War II. This issue isn’t the grand exploits of the Justice Society during the war; the heroes featured here barely have a moment to blink before inadvertently bringing down a German attack on Mallory’s outfit that wipes out everyone – supes included – with the exception of Mallory himself.

THE BOYS is a tough series that pulls no punches and delights in ripping to shreds the superhero archetypes and this issue’s no different, easily puncturing the whole Captain America/Justice Society World War stories while celebrating the efforts of the real men who fought there.
