    Taken as a whole, the Hit-Girl mini-series is so much more than a bridge between the first two volumes of Kick-Ass. Though we know that Mindy's story comes full circle by the end of Kick-Ass 2, it's shockingly easy to take a perverse amount of pleasure in her slow descent into madness. Read Full Review

    Hit-Girl #5 is a great conclusion of the story. Intense action, touching emotional moments, laugh-out-loud funny parts and still like nothing else on the comic market ever. Fans should now be fully stoked for the upcoming Kick-Ass 3 comic series and the Kick-Ass 2 movie. If you are a fan and sat on the fence about Hit-Girl, get off of it now, go buy all five issues or at the very least buy the trade when it comes out. Fans of the series must read this comic, and interested readers can easily find themselves a good starting off point with this series. Read Full Review

    Millar has definitely carved out his niche, but he knows how to move around in it, be creative, and avoid being repetitive and stale. Whereas some of Millar's newer works have been hollow and clichd Hit-Girl has showcased everything Millar does well, using well-known character, but without having them become dull or worn out. Having raised the stakes once again, Millar has set the bar very high for himself to either meet, or hopefully, to exceed. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Feb 10, 2013

    Hit Girl was a great mini-series and this was a great issue. Everything gets wrapped up and sets the stage for Kick Ass 2. Unfortunately, you enjoyment of it will hinge on whether you've read the sequel. All of Millar's trademarks are on display so fans of vulgarity need not worry. Aside from a few design issues, the art's well done and services the story. And here comes the but. But you'll be shelling out $4.99 for this book. That's a steep price point for a story that doesn't seem much longer than any of the previous issues. In fact, much of the extra page count appears to be at the end, promoting "Millar World", future projects and the feeding of Millar's ego. Not only did we have to wait forever, but now are expected to shell out two more dollars for little extra content. It's Marvel's frustrating pricing at work, but that's a discussion for somewhere else. Price aside, Hit Girl #5 was a fun read earning 3 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review
