Publisher Comments:

The concluding half of Kick-Ass 2, following Kick-Ass 2 Prelude: Hit-Girl, the sequel to the biggest creator-owned comic of the decade--the one that spawned the number one hit movie and the worldwide phenomenon!

KICK-ASS is back, just as over-the-top as ever! As everybody's favorite psychotic 11-year-old HIT GIRL trains KICK-ASS to be...well, a bad-ass, RED MIST gathers a team of super-villains to take them down! It's super hero mayhem as only MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA JR. can bring you!

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.
