About the Author
Mark Millar has been one of the key writers for Marvel Comics in the 21st century. His first major contribution to Marvel was with Ultimate X-Men. Next up was The Ultimates, a new rendering of the Avengers that was to continue building on the success of the Ultimate line. He and artist Bryan Hitch pulled it all off in spades: The Ultimates and its sequel, Ultimates 2, were ensconced at the top of the sales charts every month; what's more, they were critical successes, as well. Amid building a small library of Millarworld indie comic books including the titles Chosen and Wanted, the latter of which was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Angelina Jolie he managed to write Civil War, the epic seven-issue miniseries that definitively reshaped the landscape of Marvel's heroes.
John Romita Jr. is best known for his extensive work with Marvel Comics from the 1970s to present day.

With the mob taken care of by Hit-Girl she has retired and left Kick-Ass and the new wave of heroes to protect the city from the new wave of villains. The feud between Kick-Ass and Red Mist is the driving force of the book with each of the teams (Justice Forever vs TMCs) battling on a city wide scale. In my opinion this is the weakest of the 3 Kick-Ass titles (and the Hit-Girl one) but is still a necessary part of the collection and overall arc of Dave Lizewski. It is superior to the movie version by virtue of not needing to cram the Hit-Girl story into this one.
Justice Forever! I absolutely adored the first one. This one is almost as good. I think the ending is weaker and the overall tone is less humorous than the first, but it’s still a winner. Romita Jr’s artwork is a major draw for me, and even though some of the coloring is inconsistent, it’s not distracting. By the end of the book I found out there was a prequel I should have read called “Hit-Girl”. I assume it chronicles what takes place between Kick-Ass 1&2 - I am reading it next. If you loved the first Kick-Ass book, then this is a must read. The only problem I had is that after reading the first one, I knew what to expect, so the violence and plot twists did not amaze and astound me as they did the first time, but this is still a great installment of a modern classic.
This is probably the best comic I've ever read
