Sneak Peek: Hit-Girl Series

Published on April 11th, 2011

Fans of the ultra-violent and ultra-awesome Kick-Ass will be pleased to hear that writer/creator Mark Millar has announced an upcoming spin-off featuring Hit-Girl!

In a Comic Book Resources exclusive, Millar talks about the upcoming spin-off which is apparently an ongoing series, with art by Leandro Fernandez.  There is no word yet as to when the first issue of this series will be released.

Millar said to CBR, “This is Hit Girl in her own ongoing book because I found that as I was writing the ‘Kick-Ass’ comic, Hit Girl would almost take it over because she was so much fun to write. When I was writing ‘Kick-Ass 2’ I found myself just desperate to write Hit Girl, but I had to force myself to give Kick-Ass as many scenes as possible because it was his book. So since I had so many ideas for Hit Girl that I couldn’t fit into one book, so I’ve just spun it off into a solo title. It made perfect sense. Everyone coming out of the movie or reading the comic just wanted more Hit Girl, so you needed more stories of her.”

Hopefully, this series won’t experience the same scheduling problems that Kick-Ass andKick-Ass 2 have had.
