    Overall, I found this to be an exciting and engaging issue. Not only do we see Patience embark on some hectic and intense raids but we also see her have a change of heart and embrace her superhero persona. I loved this issue and can't wait for the third one to come out. Read Full Review

    I am very much enjoying this storyline and I am looking forward to see where else Millar will be going with Patiences story. I am definitely waiting for this book to really pick up. We have seen what the new Kick-Ass is capable off but she still hasnt really angered the bad guys yet. Kick-Ass always has really epic and creative villians so im waiting for that big reveal. I am happy with this story and cant wait for more! Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, Romita Jr. is doing the Lords work bringing these bloody, brutal and outright vicious panels of emotion to your front door. When this Kick-Ass run is over, I believe this will be the issue that showed how much courage Patience truly had. We're cooking up a masterpiece here, and I can't wait for the main course.

    Comic Crusaders - Brax Mar 19, 2018

    If the stakes of this iteration of Kick-Ass seem higher that's because they are. Patience Lee is a dynamic, likable, if slightly reluctant, hero who is kicking ass with a decidedly deliberate purpose. She is the Robin Hood we need right now. Read Full Review
