Hit-Girl's on a mission, courtesy of Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso, and it's taking her north of the border to Canada. Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. have turned over the keys to Mindy McCready's comic book adventures to new creators, and for his part, the writer couldn't be more thrilled.
"The opening two pages of Jeff and Eduardo’s [Hit-Girl story] is just beautiful," Millar told CBR in a recent interview. "Hit-Girl catching snowdrops on her tongue and then turning the pages to see she’s caught in a Canadian bear-trap and just blown a guy’s head off. You see these first two pages and you’re just like, I’m in!"
Check out the issue's solicitation text and preview, including the pages Millar praised, below.
