Kick Ass 2 – Mark Millar

Kick Ass 2This is a good continuation of the story and the themes of the previous issues. With a returning villain and a clear plan the stakes are definitely raised here.

Romita’s art is excellent. Children, animals, and graphic violence are all handled with style. A strong colourist capable of great lighting effects and a confident panel structure make this a visual feast.

Millar puts out his social soapbox but there is less of him pimping his own products so the delivery of his moral message is smoother than it has been previously. The seven issue length also makes a big difference allowing room for the story to breathe and the emotional beats time to resonate.

Thumbs Up!
