Mark Millar & John Romita Jr - Kick-Ass No 1 (5 stars)

Kick Ass

(Marvel)

MODERN DAY SUPERHERO

It’s certainly not all about the past with Romita Jr as this new collaboration with Mark Millar proves. The two artists’ styles complemented each other so well on Wolverine: Enemy of the State that it’s not surprising Millar turned to JRJR once again for his latest project, Kick-Ass.

It’s a simple concept, positioning superheroes in the real world but it’s done with an amazing realism and plenty of action driving the story home. Of course we’ll have to see if Millar can sustain the tension throughout the full six-issue run, but this is one of the most addictive introductions to a brand new character in a long time.
