This review is from: Kick-Ass 2 Prelude - Hit-Girl (Hardcover)
This book fits in just between Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2 (the volume that the new film is based on). It tells us what happened just after Big Daddy has died and Hit-Girl tries to live a normal life.
Hit-Girl agrees to train Kick-Ass, train him how to stay a live if he will teach her how to be a normal girl. What Kick-Ass knows about being a 'normal girl' is beyond me but that's the deal they strike. Meanwhile a new Mafia Don is on the rise and he has Mafia-sized scores to settle that are surely going to bring Hit-Girl out to play.
I think I enjoyed this outing more than the Kick-Ass outings. Hit-Girl is far more interesting than Kick-Ass and that's not just down to the fact that we (meaning me) like to see a girl be so viciously brilliant. Hit-Girl is cleverer, smarter and more determined than anyone else around her and you've got to admire that.
