The new Hit-Girl series by creator Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz feels very different from previous Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl comics. The art is a little more fun. I loved one panel in particular where while on a hit Hit-Girl and “sidekick” Mano must fight coked up zoo animals. The animals bustling down a hallway (including an alligator!) to attack our anti-heroes is priceless. The team continue to take out rivals of Mano with a large amount of success. The choices Millar makes for the weapons and other assorted gadgets are a trip.  The end half of the book has a dark reveal that I will not spoil and adds an intensity to the story arc. Bonus points to Millar for mentioning how great Tom King is on Batman. Really fun stuff. This book for all of it’s violence has been more enjoyable than previous incarnations. I think it appeals more to me because the art is so damn great. Lopez Ortiz is fantastic!
