Official Press Release

Get your first look at Kick Ass 2 #3, right here from the chart topping creative team of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.! This time, the beatings won’t slow down, as Kick Ass 2 resumes a regular printing schedule of every six weeks, right until the final issue!  Escalation is the name of the game, as feeble high-school geek Dave Lizewski embraces his role as a real-life, ass-kicking superhero! But wait, it gets crazier as he joins Justice Forever! But what’s the price for having an entourage of costumed nut jobs?  Dave’s nemesis The Red Mist has the answers, along with a few other bloody surprises, this August in Kick Ass 2 #3!

“I couldn't be more excited that the scheduling problems have all been taken care off because this is most I've enjoyed working in the medium since I started” said Millar. “I’m thrilled that fans have kept on supporting the book, our sales have been incredible, and everyone has been appreciated. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to feels to know this is out every six weeks like clockwork now! The ride only gets wilder from here!”

And THAT’S NOT ALL! Reserve your hospital bed because the first two heart-stopping issues of Kick Ass 2 are bludgeoning their way back to comic shop shelves everywhere! With the Kick Ass 2 #1 going to an unprecedented FIFTH printing, and Kick Ass 2 #2 bloodying up the competition with a second printing, this book is unstoppable! Catch up on the action with Kick Ass 2 #1 Fifth Printing Variant & Kick Ass 2 #2 Second Printing Variant, and prepare yourself for the latest and craziest issue of Kick Ass yet!

Fans and critics agree, Kick Ass hits right where it hurts!

“Romita’s clarity and experience give real weight and depth to every panel, and the fight sequences are fantastically choreographed.”—James Hunt, on Kick Ass 2 #1.

“Kick-Ass has never been a series that shies away from violence. Issue #2 of Kick-Ass 2 is further proof of that.”—Erik Norris, on Kick Ass 2 #2.

“It's a good first issue in that it hooks the reader in pretty quickly.” David Pepose, on Kick Ass 2 #1.

“Lateness be damned, I had a bastard of a good time with this one!”—Johnny Decturcto, on Kick Ass 2 #2.

“Millar repeatedly sells you on the notion of his characters’ self-styled vigilantism before serving up a harsh reminder of how silly you are for being willing to play along.” Chris Kiser, on Kick Ass 2 #1.

What gut-wrenching scheme is The Red Mist forming and can Justice Forever put an end to it? And where the heck is Hit-Girl? Find out this August!
