I think I’ve kind of become desensitized to Mark Millar’s particular type of hyper-violence, because the stuff in this issue that stuck with me wasn’t Hit-Girl killing a load of gangsters in very violent ways, but the smaller stuff with Mindy trying to learn to be a normal teenage girl. Of course, Millar plays it for laughs with very scathing attacks on the kind of shit teen girls like, but it is very interesting to see a character who is so out-there and unrealistic try and be real. But the violence was pretty cool. I also liked the familiar meta-commentary about super-heroes, with the repeated jumping through windows, and Kick-Ass’ terrible attempts at making Spider-Manesque one-liners. The Red Mist stuff is cool, but I do feel that on the whole this book is suffering from being set in between Kick-Ass 1 and 2, we already know what’s going to happen, so there’s not much suspense. It’s still fun, but it’s lost the usual ‘HOLY SHIT WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT I BET IT’S INSANE’ feel that most Millarworld stuff has.

You think this mini would have been better suited if they released it first then Kick Ass 2? I think so.
