Press Release From the feature film based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl is a lethal martial artist and weapons expert; she has been trained to fight crime practically since her childhood. In the film adaptation, Mindy is played by Chloë Moretz, for which this statue is modeled after. Standing 9 ½ inches tall to the tip of her gun and measuring 4.5″ W x 4.5″ D, Hit-Girl has been sculpted and painted in meticulous detail by Joy & Tom Studios. The Hit-Girl School Girl Statue is being offered for an incredibly introductory price of only $279.99
Or – “She Looks Really Weird On That Cover, Doesn’t She?” I’ve been a fan of John Romita Jr. since his run on Spider-Man decades ago, and have appreciated Mark Millar’s work since the early 90’s. When they work together, though, I find my opinion of their work to be all over the place. Can Hit-Girl get past the novelty value of a foul-mouthed 12 year old murderess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Though we were busy meeting new friends, and old fans at Nerdtacular 2012, that didn’t stop us from combing through the list of new comics coming out this week, and giving you a list of ten books you should read this week.
This past weekend, the 29th annual Heroes Convention was held in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was lucky enough to attend, and boy am I tired of hoofing it. When I was not jibber jabbering to comic creators, and getting off the elevator on the wrong floor. I DID snap some pictures, so take the jump Spoilerites to see what you missed!
We linked to the Hit Girl trailer last week, but now you don’t have to push your way through some age verification B.S. thanks to YouTube. Be warned though, this is the Red Band trailer, which means there is a lot of cursing, blood, violence, and the C-Word.Â This definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK!Â You’ve been warned. Good lord that was a lot of fighty-fighty!
