Hit-Girl # 4 - Mark Millar

Hit-Girl # 4 - Mark Millar

By Arion in Reviews on December 20, 2012

Even without Kick-Ass’s help, Hit-Girl continues to wreak havoc in the underworld. She has targeted the mafia, and she’s relentless. Mr. Genovese, the big boss, loses millions of dollars as his clandestine transactions are routinely intercepted by a 12-year-old girl more lethal than anyone else in the world. Meanwhile, after torturing the most popular girl in school, Mindy is finally welcomed by all girls. Suddenly, they all want to sit next to her during lunch and Mindy is the one that gets to decide who deserves the privilege of her company. Dave Lizewski is still recovering after breaking his arm, and that’s when he gets a mysterious message sent by his nemesis, Red Mist.  Red Mist tells him that he has been training in Asia with the best martial arts experts that money can buy (or hire), and he compares himself to Bruce Wayne before turning into Batman; he warns Dave about his fighting abilities that have now increased beyond all measure. However, what Red Mist doesn’t know is that his masters are only interested in the thousands of dollars he has been paying them, and instead of teaching him Kung Fu secrets they simply make him do weird exercises that look cool but that have no real purpose. This is an important subplot, as Red Mist’s fighting abilities will be tested on his final confrontation with Kick-Ass in the second volume of the series.  There are some really funny references to pop culture, movies (such as “Batman Begins”) and even comics, as Red Mist tells Dave to enjoy DC’s relaunch in the little time he has left (ironically, this relaunch is no longer bringing joy to DC, as their sales continue to decline, but I doubt Millar has used these line to make fun of the Distinguished Competition). Another subplot that will have greater repercussions in the second volume is the fact that Mindy’s stepfather finds out she has been killing dozens of mobsters in recent weeks, and forbids her to continue acting as Hit-Girl. Now Mindy will have to do everything she can to escape from home if she wants to keep fighting against crime, but clearly her stepfather is smart enough to keep an eye on her, after all, he is a cop.  _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ Incluso sin la ayuda de Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl continúa agrediendo al bajo mundo. Su blanco es la mafia, y ella es implacable. Mr. Genovese, el gran jefe, pierde millones de dólares cuando sus transacciones son interceptadas rutinariamente por una niña de 12 años realmente letal. Mientras tanto, después de torturar a la chica más popular del colegio, Mindy por fin es bien recibida por todas las chicas. De pronto, todas ellas quieren sentarse a su lado a la hora del almuerzo, y es Mindy la que debe decidir quiénes merecen el privilegio de su compañía. Dave Lizewski aún se está recuperando después de romperse el brazo, y ahí es cuando recibe un misterioso mensaje enviado por su némesis Red Mist.  Red Mist le dice que ha estado entrenando en Asia con los mejores expertos en artes marciales que el dinero puede comprar (o alquilar), y se compara a sí mismo con Bruce Wayne antes de convertirse en Batman; advierte a Dave sobre sus habilidades de lucha que ahora se han incrementado. Sin embargo, lo que Red Mist no sabe es que sus maestros sólo están interesados en los miles de dólares que él está pagando, y en vez de enseñarles los secretos del Kung Fu lo fuerzan a hacer raros ejercicios que se ven alucinantes pero que en realidad no tienen ningún propósito. Este es un sub-argumento importante ya que las habilidades de pelea de Red Mist serán puestas a prueba en la confrontación final con Kick-Ass en el segundo volumen de la serie.  Hay algunas referencias muy divertidas sobre la cultura pop, películas (como “Batman Begins”) e incluso cómics, cuando Red Mist le dice a Dave que disfrute el relanzamiento de DC mientras pueda (irónicamente, este relanzamiento ya no resulta un disfrute para DC, y es que sus ventas continúan cayendo, pero dudo que Millar haya usado esta frase para burlarse de la Distinguida Competencia). my drawing / mi dibujo Otro sub-argumento que tendrá mayores repercusiones en el segundo volumen es el hecho que el padrastro de Mindy descubre que ella ha estado matando a docenas de mafiosos en las últimas semanas, y le prohíbe continuar actuando como Hit-Girl, Ahora Mindy tendrá que hacer todo lo que pueda para escapar de casa si es que quiere seguir luchando contra el crimen, pero su padrastro sabe que debe vigilarla, después de todo, él es un policía.

Review: Atomic Robo The Ghost of Station X

Review: Atomic Robo The Ghost of Station X

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on December 20, 2012

Cover In England a building vanishes. In space some astronauts need to be rescued and Robo is the man/robot for the job. Alan Turing does something and a 18 Wheeler will save the day. Atomic Robo and his fellow co-workers at Tesladyne are going to be faced with some hard to solve mysteries, will be hunted, persecuted and will have to fend off against a kindred spirit. Beside the full story arc of The Ghost of Station X this volume collects the last Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Atomic Robo issue. How is it? Special Delivery A building goes missing in good old England. Oddly there seems to no record of the building ever existed. If not for the exposed foundations and the memory of the some historians there would be no evidence of the building's existence. The current day Sparrow asks Robo for Help, but he is tied up so he sends my favorite Tesladyne team to help out. Will they help or destroy the world? At the same time, but across the ocean, Tesladyne receives an urgent call from NASA requesting Robo's help to rescue some astronauts stuck in space. Of course Robo rushes to space any way he can to save the day. Needless to say nothing goes according to plan and ends in a blazing horror. In other words, just another day at the office for Atomic Robo. Atomic Robo The Ghost of Station X is and action, mystery and humorous book. Both this plots are unveiled in the first 3 chapters of the book. At first is a bit confusing, but like any good mystery story, it all comes together very nicely near the end. The ending is very rewarding. Like in most Atomic Robo stories, here Brian Clevinger enriches the relationship between the book and the reader with references to real life aspects. Lovecraft, Tesla, Addison, Einstein have been present in previous volumes in one way or another. This time is Alan Turing's turn to make a contribution. Whack-a-Chicken The FCBD issue is all about jungle giant pre-historic chickens that were thought to be extinct. Its pure entertaining. It won't add anything to the Atomic Robo Universe but its a very funny short story very much worth the read. Brian Clevinger has a knack to villainize classic personalities, theories and achievements in the various fields of science. As a result Robo is that much interesting to read, especially if you're a sci-fi buff. Art wise Scott Wegener does a great job as is expected. The art style of Atomic Robo is just the right amount of goofy, vibrant and dynamic. Scott manages to give lots of expression impact to Robo with just the eyes to work. Its a delight to see. Geronimo Verdict? This is classic Atomic Robo. If you never read a Atomic Robo story don't worry, that is not a problem. While there is a certain continuity in Robo's Universe its not very strong and not at all intrusive. There is one joke and one minor reference in this book that you won't understand if this is your first Robo book. Brian and Scott makes sure each arc is more or less self-explanatory. The Ghost of Station X is a fun and funny book, packed with action and weird science and glorious sci-fi from start to finish. Its a great daily commute read. I've loved all Atomic Robo books thus far and this 6th volume is continuing that trend. Highly recommended.
