    This was a fabulous issue, which went some way to not only escalating the story when it comes to the villains. But it also escalates things with regards to Patience's family life given that one of the gang members she takes on is related. The closing page of this issue pretty will pretty much keep fans guessing for the next month. Read Full Review

    You think it's about to be curtains for our girl. You ready to pour out one for the homie when BAM: “Night Stalkers never quit!!” That motto hit, and it's like she transforms into an incomparable beast. Of course, it takes a hell of a lot more than a motto to overcome a room full of6 trained killas and1 homicidal, unrelenting, raw, prison-loving, certifiably insane killing machine named Violencia!! Kick-Ass has stuck her neck out trying to save a cop who was simply doing his job. She has lost pints of blood, broken a bevy of bones and is being circled by sharks. Read Full Review

    Romita Jr. delivers a solid car chase, but that's a difficult compliment to offer given the sadistic and purposeless bent of the rest of this issue. Read Full Review
