    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Mar 27, 2018

    'Hit-Girl' carries on the tradition of serving justice by any means necessary (or unnecessary). Mindy might just be crazier than ever as she's having a ball taking out Colombia's most notorious drug lords. Millar and company are giving classic 'Kick-Ass' fans all they can handle in a propulsive and ultra-violent carnage-fest. There's also a sly subtext to the plight of people caught up in places ruled by cartels that aren't lost on me and it's appreciated even if it is surrounded by some of the most over-the-top violence you'll ever see. Nonetheless, 'Hit-Girl' delivers big time.  Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Mar 29, 2018

    Man, Mark Millar is having a blast with this Hit-Girl character and story. From start to finish, her levels of savagery are monumental. Yet you get these snapshots of geeky joy, nostalgia and humor that wash over you like a tidal wave of understanding and respect. The twists at the end of this issue were severely daunting.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 4, 2018

    Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz have me hooked with their ultra-violent continuation of Hit-Girl as she continues her Columbian "vacation". The art is great and the story, while more setup than the awesome first issue, has me hooked. If you don't mind microwaved bad guys and a nod to Tom King's Batman, you should check this one out.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 28, 2018

    With Hit-Girl #2, I don't even know what number to say they cranked the dial to. It surely was past ten, and I'd hate to say anything less than double. This girl is bloodthirsty and this is a prime example of what you are in store for when she is off her leash. One would assume Mano might be somewhat of an influence here, but it is all Hit-Girl, all day. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Apr 4, 2018

    The story does fall flat when it focuses on Manos little brother Ricardo, he brings nothing to this issue at all and his scenes bring the action to a halt which makes the issue feel disjointed and almost like two different comics altogether. Read Full Review

    I'm already severely disappointed with where the series is at. I love the Kick-Ass franchise, but this is just a showcase for what kind of kooky sci-fi spy weapons Millar can dream up. There's no substance and no character that I can relate to anymore, including Hit-Girl. I also can't help but acknowledge the crocodile on pages 4 and 5, it seems to be bipedal and capable of dancing for some reason. Hilarious, but it takes me out of the story completely.

    I enjoyed this issue of “Hit-Girl” with its over the top violence and cartoony art. The plot with the Padre and the Colombian gangs is interesting enough and the issue was paced well. Loved the art—the page where Mindy and the assassin guy are riding the back of the train is great—Roderigo Lopez Ortiz brings an incredible sense of movement to his panels here. One would think Mindy and Big Daddy’s code would prevent her being friends with this dude, kind of odd, but this has also gotta end with a showdown between the two...Anyway, I liked it!
