CBR Review: The Boys: Highland Laddie #1

I recently reviewed The Boys: Highland Laddie #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Highland Laddie is the second of three planned mini-series to accompany The Boys and, unlike last year’s Herogasm, it focuses on one of the main cast members -- in fact, you could say it focuses on the main cast member, the point of view character for the series, Hughie. After recent events in the title that saw him take a terrible beating from a superhero and learn that his girlfriend Annie is one of the Seven, Hughie takes some time away from the group to return to his hometown of Auchterladle, Scotland. The way things go, it’s almost surprising that Ennis didn’t title the issue 'You Can’t Go Home Again.'"
