P.M. Bradshaw, August 8, 2012 (view all comments by P.M. Bradshaw)
Good, but less so than the original Kick-Ass. John Romita Jr.’s artwork is again top-notch, but Millar doesn’t break any new ground here in his writing. It’s simply a this-happens-next story.

There is always one scene in any Millar story that bothers me ��" one event where Millar pushes the envelope just a little too far. It’s as if with each book, he’s saying, “See how far I’ll go? No one else would go this far!” But at a certain point it comes off as a little juvenile, and the event in question takes you out of the story ��" it breaks the flow of the narrative. Violence towards small children is a touchy subject with me, as is rape, and I cringed more than once while reading this.

Hit Girl steals the show, again. She is much more interesting than the character of Kick-Ass, the namesake of this book, and again, that pulls you out of the story, questioning why. Kick-Ass 2 also has the feel of the middle part of a trilogy ��" the feeling that this is all mostly set-up for a bigger finale.

I look forward to the Hit Girl graphic novel and Kick-Ass 3 (I assume is coming), but I probably won’t read Part 2 again.
