Shitty McTitty Bar; now where will I go for under age extreme cussing?



Source: JOHNNY JUST DELIVERED THE FINAL KICK-ASS PAGES!

The seminal shock over substance universe of Kick Ass will come to an end “next month” with the over-sized 42 page Kick Ass 3 #8. From Mark Millar’s personal blog:

Woke up, made a cup of tea, switched on the computer and a big email from Johnny with the final pages of the Kick-Ass conclusion, Kick-Ass 3 #8. It's actually quite an emotional thing to see the final few pages of a comic that literally changed your life. Kick-Ass was not only a dream project for Johnny and I, something we did for free for the first year until the cash started coming in. But the success of the book and the subsequent movies, collections, international editions, toys, T-shirts and Pez dispensers gave us a chance to have that thing all writers and artists crave - complete freedom to write and draw the comic-books you really want to make.

A freedom John Romita Jr, as pointed out by Rich Johnston, is using to draw Superman.

Kick-Ass will be best known for its shocking moments and language over any actual story or theme - which makes it the perfect comic book equivalent to Michael Bay’s Transformers which also focus more on “did you see that” over “good story-telling – and is the poster child for the current run of “can they do that?” types of comics that, once you get over being shocked, really don’t say anything.

Here’s hoping that with Kick-Ass wrapping up and the threatened Nemesis 2 nowhere in sight, Millar has gotten all of this out of his system and he can go back to writing comics with plots again, like 1985 and Superior.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
