Kick-Ass 2, Prelude: Hit-Girl

Kick-Ass is awesome but you all know the best part about this series is little girls! No, I mean a little girl! Umm — that still doesn’t sound right. Hit-Girl is the man — if a man could kick as much ass as a little girl trained from childhood to take down mobsters. Icon Comics brings the pain again with everyone’s favorite (well, maybe not everyone) Mark Miller (Wanted, Sin City) and artist John Romita Jr. (World War Hulk, Eternals).

The writing flows alongside the artist’s illustrations. It’s more of what you want to see: high-school kids dressing up and trying to patrol the streets, Red Mist still working his way up to becoming a super-villain, Kick-Ass doing his best to learn all he can from Hit-Girl — with plenty of witty banter. Hit-Girl doing what we like most: beating the hell out of people and killing them all while trying to be a regular high school student. Bullets, beat-em ups and bloodied bodies — it’s what you look for in a Kick-Ass comic and it delivers!

Kick-Ass

What would you do if you wanted to be a superhero? Would you spend all your days thinking about it or would you actually do it. Icon’s Kick-Ass, written by Mark Millar (Secret Service, Jupiter’s Legacy) and illustrated by John Romita JR. (Iron Man, Spider Man), asks just that question.

It’s hard being a teenager, knowing how to fit in, getting the girl and all that fun adolescent stuff. To Dave Lizewski that’s all well and good, what’s really important, is being a superhero. Too bad for him that’s when he tried to be one, he got the sh*t kicked out of him and got stabbed. But, that’s not going to stop Dave and pretty soon people are starting to recognize the masked vigilante known as Kick-Ass.

When it first came out this is series was unbelievably popular and it’s easy to see why. It’s a super fun comic that never takes itself seriously at all; over the top violence, vibrant artwork, ridiculous high school situations, great characters and of course, a child who commits murder. What’s there not to love about this comic. Personally, I like the comic book ending more than the one in the movie because hey, you don’t always need a happy ending.
