Wow, another Millar review, who would have thought it.
What’s been going on: Well you’re probably already familiar with who Kick-Ass is and what’s been going on. Red Mist is back with a super villain name I’m not comfortable with posting on a review site, Kaitie is hurt, and Dave’s dad took the fall for Dave when the police came for Kick-Ass.
I was more pleased with issue 5 then issue 4. It had been almost a year between 3 and 4 and there was some character building. If the title had been on schedule, this wouldn’t have been a problem, but by the time 4 came out, I was ready for an ass kicking. There was some action in 4, but it developed characters, and the same could be said about 5, however, we finally get to see what we’ve been waiting for. Hit-Girl to Dave’s rescue!
I was pleased with this title and hope that the finale is coming in January. (According to Millar’s twitter feed Kick Ass 6 and 7 will double ship with 7 being a double sized issue).
