    We end with another masked man sending Kick-Ass an email, ending with a familiar quote: Wait til they get a load of ME! Bottom line: Its a $&@*ing winner. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jan 31, 2010

    This issue is a fitting and enjoyable end to the first volume of KickAss that closes things out in a strong, albeit familiar, manner that should be relatively satisfying for most readers. There are some creative missteps in the writing that are frustrating, Read Full Review

    I like the innocence of the characters captured by Romita, although I keep thinking that Steve Dillon would have been a better pick for this seores. Romita does make the action larger than life and he knows how to draw a good mobster. But for some reason, I would have preferred Dillon to handle the gore instead. Well, its never too late to hope and maybe the second mini-series will bring that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jan 27, 2010

    Kick Ass arrived on the scene like a boot in the face, never compromising or apologizing for what it was, and in the end it only works on the same level as Frank Millar's "All Star Batman" -- either you enjoy the sheer absurdity, or you don't -" and for those of us that do, this issue provides as satisfying a punchline to the joke as we could've hoped for.

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jan 27, 2010

    Kick-Ass, and this finale in particular, works best when Romita's art takes center stage bringing Millar's wildest ideas to life, acting out absurd theatre that plays like some ungodly amalgamation of Scarface, the Three Stooges, Home Alone and Wild E. Coyote. Though I look forward to the movie – which, by the way, was written, cast, shot, edited and screened in the time it took to complete the actual comic – I have a tough time believing any director, cinematographer and cast of actors will be able to bring this craziness to life with the same wicked zeal Romita brings to this book. Maybe the movie will prove me wrong, but I seriously doubt it. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Charles Webb Jan 26, 2010

    Kick-Ass is what happens when you make Unbreakable and totally rethink it so that it's brain dead and tone deaf, and maybe, just maybe, a little racist. Read Full Review
