Synopsis: HIT-GIRL IS BACK! The pint-sized Punisher-meets-Polly-Pocket has left America behind and set off to serve justice around the world. First stop: Colombia. A mother seeking vengeance for the murder of her child enlists Hit-Girl to destroy his killer, but Mindy has bigger plans for Colombia’s most feared hitman.
Review: Hit-Girl is back and readers will be able to catch her newest adventure tomorrow when Image Comics Unleash the pint-sized foul-mouthed psychopath on a brand new adventure.
With the retirement of the original Kick-Ass Mindy aka Hit-Girl is trying to break in a new partner, but doesn’t seem to be having a great deal of luck with the various candidates that are applying for the position through social media.
But it looks like social media could provide Hit-Girl with a few new interesting propositions that will allow her to travel and expand her murderous crime-fighting horizons and her first stop is Columbia.
There’s no doubt about it. No matter which way you slice it. Hit-Girl was the break out character in both the original Kick-Ass comics as well as the two movies and we get to see her once again in a new adventure, which presents a lot of interesting new possibilities for the psychotic crime fighter to do her thing.
Columbia is a brilliant idea for a location and the artwork from Ricardo Lopez Ortiz does a fantastic job of giving us a bit of that seedy South American underground vibe.
Mark Millar’s writing is as clear as ever and the voice of all these characters are so clear that I can already hear them in my head when reading the book.
With this being as spoiler-free a review as I can muster. I.E. not a blow by blow. All I can really say to encourage folks to pick this up is that its a first issue full of surprises with some great set up for what could well be the most international story to feature Hit-Girl.
And as ever Mindy aka Hit-Girl has some wonderfully witty retorts on hand to deal out to the bad guys as she cracks their skulls.
If you love Hit-Girl pick this up. You’ll not be disappointed.
