On the heels of the underappreciated movie version of Kick-Ass, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. have teamed up for a sequel to their original Kick-Ass story. Of course, since #1 came out last October and #2 came out in March, you could have easily forgotten about that. Hopefully, graphic depictions of canine ball-munching will bring your memory right back up to speed.
If not, Marvel's Icon imprint will be reissuing both #1 and #2 when the long-awaited Kick-Ass 2 #3 (of 7) hits stores at the end of August, staring a six-weekly publishing schedule to get back on track.
“I couldn't be more excited that the scheduling problems have all been taken care off because this is most I've enjoyed working in the medium since I started” said Millar in today's press release. “I’m thrilled that fans have kept on supporting the book, our sales have been incredible, and everyone has been appreciated. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to feels to know this is out every six weeks like clockwork now! The ride only gets wilder from here!”
