Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. have been working hard to make sure that the two of them stick with the "Kick-Ass" universe from top to bottom, including the currently running "Hit-Girl" spinoff for Marvel's Icon imprint. But the co-creator's lasting team-up on the book doesn't mean they haven't invited others to get involved with the foul-mouthed heroine's Middle School mayhem.

After a string of covers by the likes of Phil Noto, Geof Darrow, Dave Johnson and Jock, Millar and Romita today shared the last "Hit-Girl" variant exclusively with CBR! Covering November's fifth and final issue, it features the work of the legendary Bill Sienkiewicz who homages his own work with a pre-pubescent take on Sienkiewicz's classic cover for "Elektra: Assassin" #1!

HIT-GIRL #5 (of 5)
Sketch Variant by JOHN ROMITA JR. and TOM PALMER
Series finale! He pulls a knife, she pulls a gun. He sends one of hers to the hospital, she sends one of his to the morgue – THAT’S the Hit-Girl way. Mindy’s had it up to HERE with that thing called “restraint” and pays the mafia a long-overdue visit. Also: Red Mist faces his final super-villain training test. A limited edition variant by Bill Sienkiewicz will be released for this issue.

40 PGS./Mature …$4.99
