KICK-ASS IS BACK-ready to wipe out the city’s criminal lowlives, destroy its gangs, and save its communities from decay. But there’s a new face beneath the old mask, a new figure wearing that famous green and yellow spandex. Who is this new vigilante superhero? Who can fill Dave Lizewski’s shoes? WHO IS THE NEW KICK-ASS? Find out in the first issue of this new, ongoing monthly series. Comic book legends MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA, JR. reunite for the next chapter of the greatest superhero comic of all time.

  • No snark intended.
    Sometimes Millar is on point (Red Son Superman)
    other times he’s over the top for no reason and teeters over the edge of good taste.

  • Thanks for the snark!
    I’ve got nothing against more juvenile stuff (I still really like I Hate Fairyland), but I’m just over Millar’s version of it, at least for now… I did enjoy and still enjoy a lot of his work, but he is really uneven, and his “shtick” gets old quickly

  • A sign of maturity indeed!

  • So this a new ongoing?
    Eh, whatever, after reading his much lauded Ultimate Avengers run and finding it quite terrible, I think I’m over Millar’s edgy and juvenile writing

  • Millar suggested Tessa Thompson for the big screen version and she said she’s game. I can see it working.

  • Poppity 🎀

    One of my boys fav Ninja is Lloyd, so I immediately thought of him when I saw Kick-Ass!
