First and foremost, I apologise for the pun in the title of this review.
I'm sure most people are aware of the premise of this comic, but for those who don't...
Dave Lizewski is an ordinary teenager who is truly fed up with his boring life. He loves masturbating over his teacher, Mrs Zane, Comic books and superheroes. Dave has a dream, a dream which all of us have wanted to fulfill at sometime in our lives. And that dream is to become a superhero.
Mark Millar pulls of this story with such beautiful ease that it almost seems unreal. The characters are relatable, as are the trials and tribulations they witness within the pages. John Romita Jr. has illustrated Kick-Ass to his absolute best. Gritty, stylish and wonderfully violent artwork adorns the pages and is just a pleasure to look at. Once you have read Kick-Ass, you will know and understand why Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. are two of the greatest guys in the comic book business.
All of this is presented in this fantastic hardback book that is a treat to own.
Buy it, you'll not regret it.
