Blood, bullets or bad language — whatever vice ranks among the favorites of “Kick-Ass” readers, it’ll soon come to an end.
Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s Icon series wraps its third volume this year, and amongst the late game reveals left for the book are the final guest variant covers. For February 26’s penultimate issue, “Kick-Ass 3” #7 awards the honors to acclaimed artist Kyle Baker whose take on Hit-Girl was offered up exclusively to CBR.
Last month, Millar outlined the end of the series in an interview with CBR saying, “‘Kick-Ass 3’ wraps the whole story up. One of the three main characters survives and will thus be out there, possibly appearing at some point in another book, but I have no plans to write a ‘Kick-Ass 4’ or anything like that. Dave’s story very much concludes here as was always the plan. It’s tempting to keep it going as it’s been great for us and Johnny and I love doing it, but the nice thing about creator-owned is that you’re masters of your own destiny and ending it where we originally planned to is actually really satisfying.”
