The Boys: Dear Becky #1 (Ennis, Braun, Avina) is a comic that feels ripped from a bygone era, and whether or not readers can stomach it given the world’s current climate is going to be a personal choice. The Boys remains as brutal and uncaring as ever, but now lacks the wink and sense of fun the original run had. And perhaps that, too, is a reflection of the times.

A once-great book that has apparently run out of ideas, the art is stellar, but that’s about it.
