MARK MILLAR • JOHN ROMITA JR.
Black & White Variant by JOHN ROMITA JR. and TOM PALMER
Crashing through plate glass unscathed? Child’s play. Jumping over moving cars? Whatevs. When Hit-Girl is your mentor, you’d better keep up. Kick-Ass is taking lessons in Advanced Bad Assery from Mindy McCready, and in return, he’s teaching her to survive middle school.
The question is, can she dispatch the Mean Girls without severing any arteries? Meanwhile, Red Mist gets serious about making his mark in the world of super crime.
