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.

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.
