    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Aug 7, 2013

    Millar makes ginormous progress with the overall plot, creating some massively interesting elements and presenting all kinds of new emotional drama. Meanwhile, he also manages to include plenty of his signature humor (you can't go wrong with the BATMAN: YEAR ONE scene) and hits us with just the right amount of violence and shock value. Throw in a steady flow of commendable artwork and you've got a very promising issue in Dave's final series. This issue of KICK-ASS... well, it kicks ass. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Sep 9, 2013

    The conclusion to the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.s adventure is closing in. However, they manage to put the same effort into Kick-Ass on a constant basis. Kick Ass 2 offers some great twists and some twisted ideas. The danger is real and crime is still rife. Will Kick Ass manage to make a difference in the world or even his city? Somehow I do not see this trilogy being the end of the franchise. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lindsey Morris Aug 12, 2013

    Kick-Ass might only be kicking butt right now, but it's on its way to a well-rounded conclusion. With Millar and the art department putting their backs into propelling the story forward, I think we can expect some thrilling issues leading up to the final conclusion of this epic comic series.

    Indeed, Millar and Romita make it look effortless, which is a testament to how much effort they must put in. Romita especially seems to be having fun with Kick-Ass in a way that never comes across in his Marvel work, fantastic though that is. Creator-owned superheroes are always a gamble in a market dominated by Marvel and DC, and yet seeing two artists choosing to work on their own ideas within the genre -- and succeeding -- presents a fine example to the creators of tomorrow.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 13, 2013

    Not a very strong issue. There is a huge sense of sameness here. I don't doubt that Millar has some interesting stuff to come, but those interesting bits were not in this issue. Read Full Review
