Don't be tempted - DO IT! Its chuffing great. I really enjoyed this particularly story better than 'Tankies' which I also enjoyed and probably the best 'Battlefields' yet.

Yeah, seconded, it's great stuff.  Battlefields as a whole is amazing, probably Ennis' best work, with 'Happy Valley' being the highlight so far.

It's DEAR BILLY that does it for me. Possibly my favourite Ennis thing ever (so far).

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I've just started reading The Boys and I think it's been excellent. You can add my name to the list of tradwaiters as well.

Anyone seen issues 8 or 9 of Motherland?

I've seen images on-line but nothing in the shops

my last issue was this one:

Yep. You'll certainly get them if you ever venture to Weegieland.

Got to say I've found the second run of Battlefields a lot weaker than the first. No story really stood out like Dear Billy or D-Day Dodgers and, although I understand the thinking about following the same characters through a campaign, I think having two follow ups together was a mistake. I'd still be happy to see another run, but I'd probably buy the collections rather than single issues as they're written and work better that way.


On an extremely nerdy note, I quite like the way Ennis has managed to synch the current issues of The Boys and the Highland Laddie mini so that we already know why Hughie's ended up back home without it spoiling the next couple of issues. Good stuff.

We never really die.

That's not nerdy at all - in fact, it anticipates a question I have.

I just read The Boys #46, in which Hughie discovers what Annie had to do to get into The Seven. The cover has Queen Maeve on it.

Can you confirm I can read Highland Laddie #1 without it spoiling The Boys? Because I get my comics in a monthly bundle by post, sometimes I accidentally read them out of sequence.
