CBR Review: The Boys #47

I recently reviewed The Boys #47 and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "This is the issue that many Boys fans have dreaded for a long time. Last issue, Hughie saw the tape showing what Annie (aka Starlight) did to get into the Seven. This issue is the fall-out. If you’ve been reading the Highland Laddie mini-series, then what happens isn’t much of a surprise, but watching it happen is just as gutwrenching and unpleasant as it would be otherwise. The confrontation has been coming ever since the two became romantically involved and Ennis doesn’t hold back. In fact, you might say he’s a cruel bastard with how intense and emotional the scene is. But, to quote Butcher last issue: 'Cruel to be kind.' That’s Ennis all over in this issue."
