REVIEW: 'Kick-Ass" #1 by Mark Millar, John Romita, Jr., and Peter Steigerwald

Just when you thought Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. had retired 'Kick-Ass' in all its forms comes a new era that isn't a reboot or a relaunch but an extension of the same universe with an entirely new lead character and tone.


KICK-ASS #1  
Writer: Mark Millar Artist: John Romita, Peter Steigerwald Letterer: John Workman Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: February 14, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
With "The Dave Lizewski Years" behind them, Millar and Romita have also left behind the satirical ultra-violent meta-fanboy-turned-superhero saga that earned them great success culminating in two big screen adaptations. 'Kick-Ass' #1 leaves that legacy intact while broadening the appeal of Lizewski's vigilante persona to a new hero who is more qualified to literally kick ass that he was when he began donning his homemade green and yellow costume.
