REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

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. 
Meet Patience Lee. Fresh off of serving her country in the military for the last eight years. P…
