NEW STORY ARC! It's KICK-ASS versus HIT-GIRL. Old allies become enemies when Mindy screeches into Albuquerque to kill the imposter who's been running gangs in New Mexico. And as Hit-Girl sets out to avenge Dave and stop Kick-Ass' criminal operations for good, Patience fights to survive as the target of the best assassin in the biz-and questions whether she could ever kill a child to save her own life.

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Nov 10, 2020

    This opening issue sets things up brilliantly. But it also shows me just how much I have missed given that Maurice had only awoken from his coma and just begun his campaign of blackmail when I last read Kick-Ass. Nevertheless, I had little problem picking up the story and was caught up pretty quickly. Steve Niles writing is quick and fast and doesn't overly rely on exposition. Instead, he uses dialogue and action to move things along, which allows Marcelo Frusin lots of room to use his imagery to push the story forward. In short, this first issue hits really hard and pulls you in, and doesn't let go. It's a brilliant opener. Read Full Review

    I was a huge fan of this updated Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl series and none of that quality has been sacrificed in the first installment of this clash. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Nov 10, 2020

    I will be the first to admit this series was not on my immediate radar but once the preview arrived in my inbox its cover instantly grabbed my attention. Then page after page hooked me even more and before I knew it I was finished and instantly wanting to read issue #2.. Kick Ass vs Hit Girl is a great addition to the characters catalogue and will appeal to old school fans of the series but will also form a great jumping off point for new readers. Mark Millar should be proud of where his characters have gone. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 11, 2020

    It's not a Kick-Ass or Hit-Girl comic without a head lopping or two, and this meet up delivers while barely warmed up. Come for the carnage, stay for more carnage. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 21, 2020

    So when all is said and done, Kick Ass vs Hit Girl #1 is a passable begging to a story. Providing you are up to date on what is happening in this little comic universe, everything probably flows smoothly... The disorientation I felt, coupled with the lack of weight from the climactic fight scene, left my experience with this story feeling wanting. Read Full Review

    If tempo is what you're mainly here for, however, Kick-Ass vs. Hit-Girl looks like it has no intentions to slow down. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Nov 6, 2020

    A functional but pretty bland superhero crime thriller that doesnt do a whole lot to separate itself from the pack and is probably just for die hard fans and completionists. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 16, 2020

    I enjoy the art, but this issue's story is vague enough that if feels like a series of bloody vignettes strung together, serving as little more than a trailer. Read Full Review
