CBR Review: The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker #4

I recently reviewed The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "We all knew it was coming. Way back when The Boys began, Butcher told Hughie about how his wife died. It’s never been a secret or something hidden from the readers. When Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker began to tell the story of Butcher’s life before The Boys, the death of his wife was never in doubt. When she first entered the series, her fate was sealed. And, yet, damned if what happens doesn’t hit like a punch to the gut. Garth Ennis has always been a master of making an event obvious while making you dread it coming, and he does it again here with Becky Butcher."
