The Issue Four wiki last edited by striker77 on 08/20/13 07:38PM View full history

The most exciting new character of the year debuts as Hit-Girl slashes her way into the pages of Kick-Ass. She's nine years old, loves Hello Kitty and could rip out your windpipe before you even get a chance to plead for mercy. But where did she come from? And who is Big Daddy? Plus, Kick-Ass starts to find out what happens when you tick off the real-world criminals who have ignored him until now. Things turn ugly and that can mean only one thing...God, this comic is so good I could cry. And I'm very butch.

The issue begins where the last left off, Hit-girl brutally murdering everyone in the room that Dave had visited to convince Denny Lomas to leave his ex girlfriend alone. Everyone in the room except Dave and Hit-girl is soon left dead by Hit-girls katanas. Hit-girl then leaves the room jumps across a building and meets up with her partner "Big Daddy", Dave describes them to be the "real deal"

Dave lives the next few days in total guilt of the murders and fear that they may be traced to him, but relief comes quick when the killings are blamed on someone else.

Dave also find that he started a sub-culture of superhero wannabes and that ripples from the murders are going around the criminal underworld causing Dave to promise himself that he will hang up the mask a second time.

The issue ends with Big daddy and Hit-girl crushing and killing a gangster they had finished questioning.

Kick Ass continues to do just that! 0

Millar and John Romita Jr. ask us to suspend our disbelief for this entire series, but this issue they are asking a whole lot. In essense, the events in this issue could never happen in real life. A 10 year old girl is unlikely to be able to move and to fight the way Hit girl does here.  At least the Italian mobsters, as cliched as they are follow some sense of realistic portrayal, even if they are typical of stereotyped minorities. Still, this issue is awesome, it's very bloody and very violent...
