Official Press Release

From the feature film based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl is a lethal martial artist and weapons expert; she has been trained to fight crime practically since her childhood.   In the film adaptation, Mindy is played by Chloë Moretz, for which this statue is modeled after.  Standing 9 ½ inches tall to the tip of her gun and measuring 4.5" W x 4.5" D, Hit-Girl has been sculpted and painted in meticulous detail by Joy & Tom Studios.  The Hit-Girl School Girl Statue is being offered for an incredibly introductory price of only $279.99 this September, only from Dynamic Forces!!!  Dynamic Forces has offered many other sold-out statues to great acclaim such as the Army of Darkness Statue - Inspired by J. Scott Campbell and the Red Sonja statue, by Michael Turner!

Constantly on the run, Hit-Girl's upbringing and social life have been limited to her training and crime fighting and she is a very effective superhero.  She has been described as a mix between John Rambo and Polly Pocket.  Hit-Girl has been convinced by Big Daddy that she is out to avenge her mother. She longs for her father also to have a normal life as a "regular family" once her mother has been avenged.

Multi award-winning writer Mark Millar has revamped the X-Men, launched a number one Spider-Man title, brought Captain America into the 21st Century and made Superman a communist. He is also the writer of the US industry's biggest-selling comic book of the past decade, Marvel's Civil War, published in 2007. His Wanted comic series was the industry's biggest-selling creator-owned book of the last ten years until he smashed his own record with Kick-Ass, each issue selling more than Spider-Man and X-Men from issue one with an unprecedented five printings every issue. Both properties were sold as movies before the first issue hit the stands and everything Millar has ever created is in various stages of theatrical development. Wanted starred Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy. Kick-Ass stars actor Nicolas Cage.

Outside comics, Millar has been praised by Marvel Studios and screenwriter Zak Penn for creating the template for their 2008-2012 movies with his Ultimates monthly series. He and artist Bryan Hitch cast Samuel L Jackson as the leader of this super-team and their influence extends into every Marvel movie on their upcoming slate. Although busy creating his own movies and comic-books now at Millarworld, Millar remains under contract at Marvel to write some of their most high-profile projects.

John Romita is the son of John Romita, Sr., the co-creator of several notable Spider-Man stories in the 1960s and 1970s. He began his career at Marvel UK, doing sketches for covers of reprints: his debut was with a six pages story in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #4.

Romita's early popularity was based on his run on Iron Man with writer David Michelinie and artist Bob Layton, began in 1976. In the early-1980s, he had his first regular run on the Amazing Spider-Man series. Working with writer Roger Stern he co created the character Hobgoblin and he drew an issue in which Spider-Man would encounter the Juggernaut and the Juggernaut would end up traped in cement foundations. From 1983 to 1986 he had a run on Uncanny X-Men with author Chris Claremont which brought him immense popularity, as the X-Men had become a huge industry phenomenon by that time.
