Kick-Ass, Volume 1 by Mark Millar


I'm not a graphic novel person. But this one was aptly named, because it kicked ass.

Dave is just normal guy, obsessed with comic books. And he's always wondered why no one has ever put on a costume and tried to fight crime. So he does--and then promptly gets his ass kicked and almost dies. But for some reason, he can't help but want to fight again. And soon he's a internet sensation, with others putting on their own costumes and following in his footsteps. But Dave isn't prepared for what happens when he runs into actual vigilantes, Hit-Girl and Big Daddy, who are trying to take down the mob. Is he able to fight real criminals or is he just a joke?

I decided to check out this graphic novel because I thought the movies, especially the first, were pretty awesome. And I got exactly what I needed from it: a fun, beautifully/gorily drawn read for my lunch breaks. I wasn't expecting it to be world-altering, and it definitely wasn't that, but it was bad-ass and truly enjoyable.

I'm definitely gonna check out Volume 2.
