I think this book is being published at a weird time. The kid wonders why people don't try to be superheroes, but people have been doing that for a couple years now. There's always news stuff popping up about guys who dress up and protect where they live. (The one I remember best is Mr. Silent.) Normally I wouldn't think that mattered since it's a comic, but with all the effort they go into to tie it to the real world (all the pop culture references and trying to make the character seem like a normal, real kid) it kinda sticks out to me. Still think the book is good though, it's a different kind of story.

I guess the difference between guys like Mr. Silent and Kick-Ass is that in the real world these guys don't actually engage in superheroics (at least as far as I know). They have costumes and they walk around, but I've never heard of them actually doing anything. Here's an interview with Mr. Silent. He says a few things that are basically the same thoughts the Kick-Ass kid has.

Just read Kick-ass #2. another great issue! This is becoming one of my favorite books out right now!

I am sorry I didnt like this book at all. I have not read the 2nd issue but the first was really bad. with out spoiling it too much does it get any better for our wannabe

also the art is just down right poor. perhaps with a better team (pencils and colors) it would be ok

I might not be the right person to answer this for you because I thought the first one was great. In a way he comes into being a hero in this one though.

I thought the the 1st one was way way too dark. All i could think was stupid kid and then I asked my self where could a story go from here? I mean its meant to be real right and the reality is kid almost get killed ends up in the hospital and BAM thats game stories over no kid is gonna go do all that again.

Second I dont buy the gang (kids) being as tough as they were, one got nailed in the face with a weapon sorry boys that was game for him I dont buy him getting up at all. any way I really really was wanting this book to be great and I guess it fell short for me.

I goingto have to respectfully disagree. I think it was very realistic how a kid with no H2H training at all goes out and picks a fight and get destroyed. If he would have won the first one it kinda would have made it bad for me. Him getting hit on the car was icing on the cake. Heroes losing is a very realistic spin on things.

I am with you on the H2h stuff but I guess I am think if I am writing a kid trying this stuff at some point I have think "this kid is at some point gonna just run away before its too harsh" but he sticks around I dont know. I guess If your willing to vouch for it I may give issue 2 another try. But dont sterr me wrong! or I will want my 3.99 back! LOL

I liked the second issue as well. I was really wondering what was going on when he tried to give it up. I knew he wouldn't because there are more issues and the first one started with him still a hero, but they really played up his anger and disgust with himself and what he'd done. Anyway, the fight was cool and for once I really thought the hero would lose. Looked like he'd end up in the hospital again but it ended well.

I think the series is great. It is one of my favorite. 
Its nice to see a hero; who isn't perfect and actually gets hurt like the real world. 
The writing and art really gives off a relatable real world vibe.
