Okay so I’m kinda late in the game to obsess over this awesome comic, but the hardcover just came out a couple of weeks ago. Now that I have a little more time on my hands I finally got around to reading it, and I loved it. The art had me engaged, and it looked just as brutal and honest as the story. The story was great, I love how this was basically made for geeks. This comic justifies being an “inside” kid. It did a great job of capturing the horrific embarrassment of adolescence. Dave Lizewski is our hero, someone who fights the good fight and gets his ass kicked doing it, that is a whole new league of hero. The characters have depth and I can’t wait to peel more of the onion and see all of the layers. I read all of Book 1 in one sitting and was riveted with the story, not since the Runaways have I loved the story and characters so much that I wish I actually knew them. Hit Girl is one of the most brutal characters ever written, to see her go from beheading a guy to wanting to be held in almost the same breath had my head spinning…I can’t get enough of it, and have been counting down the days until the movie comes out!
Normal people unite, and start Kicking some ASS!!
