I decided to watch The Boys Presents: Diabolic season one because I wanted to watch something short, and I had been meaning to watch it since it came out. I didn’t realize that it was eight shorts that were written by different people and had different art styles. I ended up really enjoying the season as a whole. Each short had its own feel and weren’t connected to each other.
One of the shorts is connected to the comics going as far as using the same art style. It also used Simon Pegg as the voice of Hughie, who the character’s look was based on. The name of the short is “I’m Your Pusher” and its even written by Garth Ennis. This was the third episode of the season.
The last episode is connected to the show. “One Plus One Equals Two” is a look at Homelander’s first few days on the job. They even show the early relationship between Homelander and Madelyn Stillwell, which shows it was always creepy.
The other episodes are just randomly set in what appears to be the world of the tv series. I say that mostly because characters that appear in the series voice them in this series. All of the shorts are so much fun for the most part. “John and Sun-Hee” is a touching love story that kinda turns into a monster story.
The Boys Presents: Diabolic season one is a fun series of disconnected stories of superhero mayhem. I don’t know if there are plans for more seasons, but I hope that there are. The use of different art styles gives each of the stories such a distinct feel. I give The Boys Presents: Diabolic season one 9 red balls out of 10.
