    OverallThis is another solid issue, which has set things in motion that are going to make for some epic battles in the months to come. While the cliffhanger is not as exciting as last month, it does have you gasping and wondering if the game is up for Patience. Read Full Review

    I'll admit that I picked up Mark Millar's rebooted Kick-Ass series because the lead character was black. It's a shallow reason but it's true.

    Mixing the gender swap with the fact that she's a Veteran and single mother engaging in super-heroics is what piqued my interest beyond the race of the lead character. The problem is that the series has been drained of all tension and what we're left with is a bland version of Kick-Ass without any of the stakes of the original series.
