It’s Official: Hit-Girl Hates Canada [SPOILERS]

Now that Netflix has bought Millarworld (save for Hit-Girl, Kick-Ass, and Kingsman), they have also bought the exclusive writing services of Mark Millar — which means he can no longer write Hit-Girl, Kick-Ass, or Kingsman. Even though they are owned by his company Dave And Eggsy Ltd. So he’s got a bunch of his mates to do it instead. […]

Mark Millar: No Second Printings for Hit-Girl #5

Mark Millar has taken to Twitter to once again announce a ban on second printings, this time for the upcoming Hit-Girl #5 by Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso. Millar likened the situation to last week’s announcement that the upcoming new series by Millar and Olivier Coipel, The Magic Order. Announcing no second printings of the […]

Hit-Girl #1 and Ice Cream Man #2 Get Second Printings

Following up on Image Expo earlier this week, Image has announced sell-outs and second printings for Hit-Girl #1 and Ice Cream Man #2. In Hit-Girl’s case, the first three issues have been made returnable, which benefits Image twice: first when it causes retailers to increase orders and second when they can use any returned copies for […]


Millarworld Announces New Ongoing Hit-Girl Series With Kevin Smith On Second Arc

Mark Millar is returning to his teeny, tiny death machine, the teenage assassin Hit-Girl, in a new spinoff series from Kick-Ass — and like Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl is an ongoing series. Seeing the teen killer go country to country doling out vengeance and justice as needed, each arc will be taken by what are promised to be […]

Brian Michael Bendis’s List Of All The People He Says Can Beat Batman

Now that the second-longest continuous writer at Marvel Comics, Brian Michael Bendis, has signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics, everything he ever said anywhere on the internet about DC Comics is up for discussion. Including this great post on his Tumblr from earlier in the year, when asked about the comparative fighting abilities of Batman […]

Hit Girl Can Run At Over 70 MPH And Reads Jupiter’s Legacy

There’s always been a problem at the heart of the Kick Ass comic and film, in that its meant to show a real life superhero movement, without powers, without major technical advances, just people doing what people actually can do, dressed up in stupid clothes. And, when it comes down to it, behaving rather heroically. […]

How Hit Girl Tops The C-Word (Kick Ass 3 Spoilers)

We all remember that scene from the original Kick-Ass. And how it was translated onto the screen. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsvuP_ULzs0[/youtube] There hasn’t really been much of a follow up since. I mean exactly how do you follow that up? Well, possibly until today’s issue of Kick Ass #3. Where we get… Yeah, that should do it. Sandman […]

The Page That Totally Turned Kick Ass 3 #1 Around For Me

I rather enjoyed the first Kick Ass series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr from Marvel. The second… not as much. Nor the Hit Girl spinoff. But Kick Ass 3? Is it Iron Man 3 or is it Godfather Part III? It all comes down to one page. The first series contrasted the mundane […]

Thirteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – New Avengers, Secret Avengers, Hit Girl, Avengers, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Earth 2, Snapshot, All New X-Men, Superior Spider-Man, Hellboy, Youngblood, Epic Kill and Mudman

New Avengers #3 is full of lots of important Marvel Universe moments that will no doubt have implications for stories across the next year. But it also has a rare Doctor Strange moment using his earlier skill as an actual medical doctor… The final issue of this iteration of Secret Avengers shows odd Buddy Scalera’s […]

Kick Ass 3 In May

Mark Millar has hinted that we may be getting all sorts of death finales in the final chapter of Kick Ass. And we may be getting them sooner than we thought as well, according to this ad from today’s final issue of Hit Girl, Kick Ass 3 by Millar and Romita Jr lined up for […]

Kick-Ass Writes For Comic Book Resources

I thought this panel from the new issue of Hit-Girl merited a post of its own. Apparently Kick Ass, in his secret identity, writes for Comic Book Resources. About the history of superheroes and Vertigo’s paper stock… So basically David Lizewski is Augie De Blieck. I’m not sure why DC Entertainment bothers to put Vertigo […]

Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Wolverine & The X-Men, Axe Cop, X-Treme X-Men, Astonishing X-Men, Prophet, The Manhattan Projects, Eternity, Justice League Dark, Crossed, Comedian, Debris, X-Treme X-Men, Avengers, And Hit-Girl

  In Wolverine & X-Men, the artwork seems slightly off in places, Whilce Portacio anatomy put through a smoother filter, which doesn’t quite work – except for one aspect. In that it emphasises Colossus’ nature as a power mad nut job turning into a narcissistic monster, divorced from humanity – and it’s clearly deliberate, as […]

Fear Agent, Hit Girl And X-Treme X-Men Dominate Advance Reorders

Welcome once again to the only industry chart that accurately tracks what’s happening on the coal face of the comics industry, week by week, as retailers scrabble to increase their orders on certain items before they hit the stores. Extra prints of comics can often only be ordered in this fashion, so they are over […]

It’s 2012. Do You Know Where Your Comic Book Children Are?

What is up with children in comic books today? Or, rather, this week? Picking up a few comics and reading them, we have Miles Morales hitting his icon and inspiration with a dabilitating venom sting. The young Talia Al’Ghul taking it out on an innocent tree. And, bloody hell, Hit Girl using an in-teddy beear […]

Shmuggy & Bimbo From Howard Chaykin And John Romita Jr In 2013 (UPDATE)

Bleeding Cool first mentioned this comic by Howard Chaykin and John Romita Jr a while ago, back in 2009. Then it was being referred to as Shmuggy & Bimbo. It seems to have lost an H. This is what we said back then. “The titular pair are two leg breaking enforcers in nineteen-seventies New York… […]
