Mark Millar doesn’t pull any punches does he? He kills off Dave Lizewski’s dad, and then has the bad guys attack his funeral! Dick move! This issue was the usual schlock-shock stuff, and of you’re attuned to it, it’s fine, and I certainly got a massive kick out of Hit-Girl’s triumphant return. I did like how Millar stepped back a bit from the nihilism and really made Dave’s dad’s death stick emotionally, it only raises the stakes even more, and the final two issues of this mini are going to be fucking insane. Romita and Palmer’s art was great as usual, and there were some great brain bits flying around. I do worry about how they’ll translate this to a movie, some of this shit will not fly for the general public!
