EXCL PREVIEW: The New Kick-Ass Takes Aim As Hit-Girl Looms

With their new volume of Kick-Ass, co-creators Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. may have put a more mature hero in the iconic green mask, but that doesn't mean the franchise's head-butting history is being traded in for something kinder and gentler.

In the all-new volume starring Patience Lee continues with some blood-spurting, mobster-choking violence when Issue #2 hits the stands this week, and CBR has the exclusive first look at the issue's opening sequence.
