Marvel News - Kicking Ass Again

I sat down yesterday and read issue one of Kick Ass 2 by Mr Mark Millar and John "The Tank" Romita Jr. I honestly don't know how Millar is doing it. He is really in the zone at the moment, with Kick Ass 2, Nemesis and Superior off and running it's quite obvious that the Millarworld brutality has hit overdrive.



As would be expected Kick Ass 2 has sold out and is going back to print with a 2nd and 3rd printing. Millar is a great writer, no doubt about that. I have honestly loved a great deal of his Marvel work but you just cannot compare any of that to what he is doing right now. His creator owned titles positively ooze with the love and passion of a proud, if not manic, father. From reading his books you would expect Mr Millar to be an angry, violent Scotsman (is there any other type?), but by all accounts he is a very approachable and friendly chap.

OFFICIAL MARVEL PRESS RELEASE:

"After a blockbuster debut, Kick Ass 2 #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will be going back to press -- twice -- with the Kick Ass 2 #1 Second and Kick Ass 2 #1 Third Printing Variants!  The megastar creative team of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. continue the underground comic sensation of the decade! As teenage high schooler Dave Lizewski, aka Kick-Ass, gets a crash-course in super-heroics from Hit-Girl, has his dreams of a world of superheroes come true or will it all turn to nightmares?

Fan’s and critics agree, they can’t get enough Kick Ass 2!

"Kick Ass 2 positively reeks of exploitation and action. Most of the guys that read comics...wish there was cologne that they could buy so they could reek the same way." – Chris Smits, Mania.com

"Kick Ass 2 #1 looks gorgeous..." – Chris Murphy, ComicsAlliance.com

"As is typically the case with a Millar-penned comic...the writer's enthusiasm definitely bleeds through and becomes contagious." – Dan Phillips, IGN.com

“If you liked the last series, then there’s no doubt about it: get in line for this one too.” – James Hunt, ComicBookResources.com
