    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Feb 20, 2018

    Does it live up to the original? Yes. Is Mindy as psychotic as ever? Absolutely. Your jaw will drop and you'll laugh when you know you shouldn't. Millar has brought 'Hit-Girl' all the way back in glorious, globe-trotting, ass-kicking fashion. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Dec 31, 1969

    All around this issue was a great fun read full of action, surprises and character growth as well without ever feeling to rushed. The art and colors are very energetic and work well with the fast paced action story this was. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Feb 20, 2018

    Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz take aim with Hit-Girl #1 and hit their target dead-center; Mindy kick's major ass in Hit-Girl #1 and from what I've seen so far, this new run promises to be great. Overall, Hit-Girl #1 is an awesome first-issue that manages to excite and entertain and do everything that readers expect a first-issue to do. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Feb 21, 2018

    We already know the adventure that Hit-Girl and Mano are gonna take us on will be a gut-splattering, epic journey. All that matters is how dope or formidable the bad guys will be in this 4-issue run. I'm so damn excited for these next 3 books for so many reasons. This Colombian location is going to provide so much for Millar and Ortiz to work with that. The power of the people seems to be a theme that may come to fruition and Bast knows how wild that would end up. Everyone reading Hit-Girl should be grateful that BOTH of these heroes murderers vengence filled professionals have hundreds countless lives on their hands, an unlimited supply of arms, and God tier body catching capabilities. Strap yourselves in, because Hit-Girl is about to get relentlessly savage. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Feb 27, 2018

    I really enjoyed this issue, as it sets up something far larger on the horizon and positions Hit-Girl to become a hero on her own merit. With Kick-Ass and now Hit-Girl returning in the same month, its a great time to be a fan of the Millarverse and Image Comics. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 23, 2018

    The little monster has made her return in a big way. Hit-Girl #1 was everything you could have hoped for when asking what happens when she's off on her own. Does she find a proper replacement for Dave? Hell no. Does age calm the beast within? Not one bit. With no power comes no responsibility and Hit-Girl is exercising that freedom in every way possible.

    Big Comic Page - Cat McGlinn Feb 21, 2018

    All in, this is a great comic. It's a bold move by Millar to use a different artist to reintroduce such a popular character to the masses, but it somehow works. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - stephengervais Feb 20, 2018

    This latest installment of Hit-Girl is a very exciting one for long-time readers. I’m very exciting to see how this arc progresses and to find out where she’s off to next. Rumour has it she’ll be coming to my country, Canada, in an upcoming arc! New readers will get a good taste and introduction to this world and I have a feeling will immediately search for past trades. If you are for a looking kick-ass time look no further than Hit-Girl #1!

    SnapPow.com - John McCubbin Mar 3, 2018

    Hit-Girl #1 may be a fun, hard hitting opening issue, but it ultimately doesn't do quite enough to excite. Placing Mindy on a new path, the creative team do a brilliant job of reminding us how brutal this small hero can be. Despite this it unfortunately lacks the weight or intrigue of the previous series, even if there is still plenty of potential for the series moving forward. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Wesley Messer Feb 26, 2018

    Time to conclude this Hit-Girl #1 adventure. Boy oh boy, this was one wild ride.Yeah, I can fully say outside of the art team, Hit-Girl #1 is not my cup of tea. Now if you're more invested in Kick-Ass, you may love Hit-Girl #1. If you're new to the world, this won't sway you one way or the other. While Kick-Ass #1 did well in introducing the world, Hit-Girl #1 didn't do any of that well. Hit-Girl #1 is lots of splash and dazzle with no substance. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 21, 2018

    Hit-Girl is a predictably shallow comic, one more interested in offering up gory, frenetic displays of violence than trying to craft a compelling narrative. There's always a certain appeal in a series like that, especially one that doesn't attempt to cling to the grounded approach of the main Kick-Ass books. But in the end, that appeal is limited. There's simply not enough depth to this series to enable it to rise above the pack. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Feb 23, 2018

    I am sure that Mindy has a huge fan base;I am not one of them. For me, I would rather read about a fallible wanna be hero than an infallible almost villain. In the book , there is a small nod to Mindy's long gone innocence, which may well turn out to be a weakness, which shows that Millar still believes that in the chest of a brutal killer, there beats a heart of a girl that we almost didn't getto know and is almost certainly moving away from us.
