Unscripted Review: Kick-Ass 2 #1
I enjoyed this less than I enjoyed the original arc, although the art was really nice. All the characters feel very affected by their movie incarnations. I don't think a full-blown hero team is the next logical step for the book. If anything I'd think Dave would be more disillusioned about team ups after his experience the first time around.
I thought this was a pretty great opening issue for the new arc. It sets things up nicely with the main characters - Kick-Ass himself, Mindy and the little cameo from Red Mist - and the last couple pages give us an idea of what's to come.
As mentioned, the art looks awesome. I'm not a huge JR JR fan, but I'm by no means a hater, but it certainly seems to pop more than the art he did on his own.
I'm really excited to see where this story goes with a super team in the picture. These people look insane! Mindy's story has taken a real interesting turn. Good conflict there. This along with Walking Dead where my top two picks for the week.
Ah, the paradox that are women. They hate it if you lie to them, but they never seem to want you to be too honest either. One of the reason I love 'em. That, and a few more "other things". lol
I still haven't seen the movie.
Is that how you got the paper cut on your tongue?
The issue was meh. I can't agree on the art sentiment, as this issue felt like a decline over the original series. Yeah, JRJR is doing Avengers, but it's not just JRJR that is the issue here. Dean White's colors against that less detailed look from JRJR is kind of...bland.

Back to the Millarworld, my copy hasn't been mailed to me yet, so I'm waiting to taste the awesome!
G-Man, you should be commended for your public service. You're like the ringleader of the nerdiest book club ever. Watching your videos is WAY easier than loitering in the store "quality testing" the new books; I didn't even have to put on pants to do it!
