    Lemire really bellies up to the bar and delivers a noir tale paired with Risso that is a world-class example of the genre. Fans of the genre who are not turned off by language, violence, and peril, go out and grab a copy of this issue before it's gone. The cliff-hanger of this issue certainly has me anticipating how Mindy's going to get out of this one, I will definitely be back for issue #6. Read Full Review

    Overall. Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso do a great job of picking things up from where Millar and Lopez Ortiz left off. The writer and artist chemistry is very apparent and I look forward to seeing what this team brings us over the course of the next three issues. Read Full Review

    Lemire also incorporated some Big Daddy flashbacks, which was a nice touch and hopefully something he'll explore further. Mark Millar might not be writing the title any more, but Hit-Girl is in great hands and I'm looking forward to seeing how crazy this Canadian road trip will get. Read Full Review

    This is the first chapter of their short run. It's excellent and a good read overall. Read Full Review

    Mark Millar's vision for the "Hit-Girl" series is a grand curation of dream creators adding their take to the character's mythology. Reportedly, three years of stories have already been commissioned, so this is just the beginning. In her own right, Hit-girl is an iconic character with a complexity and personality that can inspire endless stories. As long as Mindy can avoid any stray Wolverines in the Great White North, this arc from Lemire and Risso is on track to add another distinct impression to the bloody legacy of Lady McCready.

    This story arc could have been the dealbreaker having switched up the creative team, but I have to say that there is still potential for this psychotic 12-year-old doing what she does best. Canadian hospitality is not enough to keep Hit-Girl from getting to her next target. The fun this time around is that her target is not willing to go down without a fight. Not to mention she might have actually poked the bear this time around too (no pun intended). Read Full Review

    Jeff Lemire isn't able to bring any notable twists to the core premise, even if he does dial back on the racist and joyfully cruel elements of Millar's writing. Read Full Review
