2018 Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl Dual Review
Lucky you, you get a little twofer review here with the new 2018 Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl debuting a week apart from each other. That Mark Millar, what a swell guy, right?
Sure Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl took a few year hiatus, but our love for them hasn’t dwindled a bit. That’s the beauty of this team, Mark Millar has created a timeless classic, Kick-Ass whoever he is will always well, kick ass. And Hit-Girl will forever be that teenage girl who’ll never back down from a fight and’s always willing to put a boot to some balls.
Kick-Ass (2018) #1
In this case Kick-Ass is a bad ass female military veteran named Patience who’s three tours as a Night Stalker have made her tough as nails, and a family that’s made her desperate to provide for, by any means necessary. Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. return in this newest Kick-Ass and it’s all very familiar. This isn’t a bad thing considering the book is still as violent and raw as ever.
Hit-Girl (2018) #1
Hit-Girl will always be that sweet girl in search of a father figure to me. I don’t know why as she could literally beat the shit out of me for saying that. That’s exactly what you get with the newest Hit-Girl from Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz. Hit-Girl is as insane as ever looking for a partner after losing Kick-Ass to a life of normalcy, and where would you look for a partner to fight crime? Why death row, that’s where! Wait what? Yeup, Hit-Girl has a problem that needs fixing and she want’s the best serial killer in the biz to join her. It plays out just like it sounds.
The newest Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl books read like they haven’t missed a beat, they’re fast, furious, and definitely beat the shit outa your standard super hero stories. That’s always kind of been Mark Millar’s way though, and I always like it.
