- Today SCEE Digital Comics Team Designer Pete Stott
has announced that Kick-ass is now officially available on Sony's PSP and PSPgo consoles.
To quote: With the release of its very own movie in theaters, KICK-ASS
is now on your PSP. That's right, the greatest super hero comic of all-time is finally here!
Before you hit the movie theaters, read the entire comic story from the superstar team of Mark Millar
and John Romita Jr
WOLVERINE: ENEMY OF THE STATE's team of MARK MILLAR (CIVIL WAR) and JOHN ROMITA JR. (WORLD WAR HULK) reunite for the best new book of the 21st century. Have you ever wanted to be a super hero? Dreamed of donning a mask and just heading outside to some kick-ass? Well, this is the book for you-the comic that starts where other super hero books draw the line. KICK-ASS is realistic super heroes taken to the next level. Miss out and you're an idiot!
Sickening violence...just the way you like it. The most screwed-up superhero comic of all time continues in what's sure to be the most exciting launch of 2008. What would happen if you tried to be a super hero? What would happen when an ordinary man in a latex suit comes face-to-face with the criminal underworld? Read about super heroes like you've never seen them before and feel happy that you are living here right now when this book is being published. Your grandchildren will only envy you. Comics just don't get better than this.
You were wowed by the first two issues of this comic. But wait until you read issue three. Mark Millar (Civil War) and John Romita Jr (World War Hulk) only up the odds here and the pace is breathtaking. I read it weeks ago and I'm still having nightmares. Never have I seen such sickening violence sold to readers in the name of entertainment. If it wasn't selling so well we'd have to stop publishing this monster. Follow Dave's journey from zero to hero as he becomes a youtube celebrity. He sure kicked the ass of those drop-outs, didn't he? Join us this issue where he inspires others to dress up and hurt people.
The most exciting new character of the year debuts as Hit-Girl slashes her way into the pages of Kick-Ass. She's nine years old, loves Hello Kitty and could rip out your windpipe before you even get a chance to plead for mercy. But where did she come from? And who is Big Daddy? Plus, Kick-Ass starts to find out what happens when you tick off the real-world criminals who have ignored him until now. Things turn ugly and that can mean only one thing...God, this comic is so good I could cry. And I'm very butch.
Since he put on the green wetsuit and became Kick-Ass, Dave Lizewski has broken both legs, shattered his back; been run over by a Mercedes, smashed by garbage cans, and clobbered by gangsters; become a YouTube phenomenon and inspired a wave of costumed vigilantes...but none of that can compare to what's going to happen now that John Genovese knows who he is. The super hero sensation of 2008 continues, courtesy of Mark Millar (CIVIL WAR, WOLVERINE, 1985, FANTASTIC FOUR) and John Romita Jr. (WORLD WAR HULK, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN)!
This is it–the moment Dave Lizewski has spent his whole brief career as KICK-ASS preparing for. When the chips are down, when everything's at stake...whose ass will be kicked? KICK-ASS' origin story unfolds as the smash hit super hero comic of 2008–by legends MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA JR.–continues!
Dave Lizewski has had better days. When he first pulled on the Super Hero suit, it was the thrill of a lifetime. Since then, he's been banged-up, beaten, broken, bludgeoned, and all sorts of other b-words. He's met a 9-year-old assassin and been on a super hero team-up. He's watched people die and seen himself become an internet celebrity. But all that means nothing–compared to tonight. MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA JR.'s foul-mouthed super hero saga continues!
THIS IS IT!!! The final confrontation as KICK-ASS and HIT GIRL test their mettle. Bodies will fly and bad guys will die as the biggest surprise hit super hero comic of the twenty-first century reaches shocking new heights! Who will live? Who will be morally outraged? MARK MILLAR (WOLVERINE: OLD MAN LOGAN) and JOHN ROMITA JR. (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) know the answers–and they hold NOTHING BACK in what's sure to be the most talked-about single issue of the year!
