Maxx’s Super Awesome Comic Review Show returns to Bleeding Cool, recorded at the one and only Astro-Zombies Comic Shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, hosted by Maxx MacLennan. They say: This week the Futures End event kicked off with some really awesome titles and the 3-D lenticular covers were fantastic! Marvel had their fair share of […]
Kick Ass 3
This week’s reviews include: Terminal Hero #1 Superior Spider-Man #32 Moon Knight #6 Miracleman #9 Big Trouble in Little China #3 Kick-Ass 3 #8 Terminal Hero #1 ($3.99, Dynamite) By D.S. Randlett (@dsrandlett) I’ve never been the world’s biggest Peter Milligan fan. Like many who count comics as a hobby, I’ve drifted in and out […]
A few weeks ago, Bleeding Cool ran a story about the preview of Mark Millar and Gorlan Parlov‘s upcoming Image comic, Starlight. And how between the first preview and the second preview it had been de-Flash Gordoned. About how, in its first announcement it was described as Flash Gordon-meets-Dark Knight. But by the second preview, […]
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. […]
A ton of comics seem to have landed on my desk this week. Massive Wednesday before Black Friday. So what have I been reading… and what will you be reading too? Bristols… time for a bit of rhyming slang folks, to help you understand Justice League Dark a little better. “Bristol… Bristol City… Titty.” Though, […]
Okay, this I just wanted to run. Philip Bond‘s variant cover to Kick Ass 3 #5, available for retailers to order with every fifty standard comics they get. Love the hidden gun, Greedo style. Hit Girl definitely shot first. Back in the day, Mark Millar tried to make 1985, Old Man Logan and his run […]
Another look through a bunch of this week’s comics! The Carry On team debut in It Came, as official British Army soldiers to provide some much needed sexism and incompetence as a counter to… the existing sexism and incompetence of Dr Brett. Book of the week, by a long way. Dan Boultwood must be looking […]
Kick Ass, Hit Girl, Kick Ass 2 and Kick Ass 3. That’s the entirety of the Kick Ass canon, by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. But there was always a mystery fifth volume… Looks like it’s Hit Girl: Origins. Oh, you thought you may have seen the origins of Hit Girl in Kick Ass, […]
A collation of the top ten charts of a number if disparate store, measuring sales on Wednesdays and Thursdays only, those who can’t wait till the weekend to buy their comics. A indication of unstoppable desire…. Superior Spider-Man #15 All New X-Men #15 Avengers #17 Detective #23 Green Lantern #23 Trillium #1 Action Comics #23 […]
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syWAvdZx5OQ[/youtube] Even though Toni is in robot mode, she and Yvette can still serve up a slammin’ salmon of Kick Ass 3 Variant covers, a seisuim salami of Villian Month topped off with Hero Bear for dessert. Enjoy!
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 […]
That Mark Millar, he’s a card, isn’t he? I want the AILS WHEN cover please.
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 […]
I tried to manage some mock outrage at Millar's comment about Superman here but I'm not a very good actor.
John Romita Jr and Mark Millar’s Millarworld Limited have jointly registered the trademark “Justice Forever” with the USA. The name of the Real Life Superhero group in the Kick Ass comic, and appearing in the upcoming Kick Ass 2 film, this week it became an official trademark for the following; SERIES OF COMIC BOOKS; GRAPHIC […]
