Image Comics releases the next generation and obviously Dave Lizewski’s superhero successor of Kick-Ass on its first issue by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.

Whenever I watched the first two movies, I find that Kick-Ass kicks everyone’s ass around town. Even no less, he teamed up with Hit-Girl to destroy evil. But now, make way for some army girl who fought in Afghanistan and wore the mask as the successor of Kick-Ass. But whatever happened to Dave Lizewski? Well, let’s get on with it.

First of all, this is a story about a girl named Patience who came all the way back home from Afghanistan, served as the U.S. Army no less. However, she had been served in the army for years in order to pay her bills for something or someone’s songs, and she couldn’t even enroll college because of that. So she would find a way to get some money for herself just to go to college for her. Now she’s becoming really more responsible not just for herself, but her whole family. She might be a night-stalker, even though she is one, and then she wore the mask to fight some crime, but in a bad way because she is desperately wanted some cash so she can keep going in her life as a normal person, or a vigilante with her military skills, making everyone else thinks of her as a comic book fan. But who knows what would she do with her life? Will she become a criminal or will she become a superhero just like her predecessor?

Kick-Ass is actually more epic from what I saw from the movie, but I wouldn’t have been surer if Kick-Ass becomes a vigilante rather than a hero. Patience is almost seemed to be desperate to get some money for college, but after all the years that she served in the military, she goes all the way back to square one. For some reason, this is something that you’ve never expect from any other superhero would do, even in the movie. But actually this comic is something else, because who knows what would she do next. The art seems very intense, but much more likely from the movie because the background and the details of the characters seemed to look much more real. But, really this is good to have something filled with some violence, it was dark, and the reason that she’s behind the mask, well there’s a lot to say on this but maybe another time. The new generation of Kick-Ass is great whether if you like to find out what she’s gonna do next, but I would recommend anyone to read this and follow through the end on the next series of comic issues.
