I don’t know about you, but as a child I loved Flash Gordon. I loved the film, the concept, the idea of a man taken to another Galaxy and tasked with saving it, defending it and bringing peace to it, all whilst wearing a rad spacesuit. But what happens after the wars are won, peace is restored and McDonalds offers the olive branch of peace whilst opening a store on deepest, darkest Mongo?
First of all when this series was announced way back at the first Kapow comic con in London, I was majorly excited as I’m both a Mark Millar fan and a massive Kick-Ass fan. I was very intrigued to find out where/when Hit-Girl’s miniseries would fit into the Kick-Ass story, and was pleased to find out that it was set in-between Kick-Ass volume one and two.
First of all when it was announced that Mark Millar would be working on a new comic project with Dave Gibbons I was very pleased that they would finally be working together. I thought the first two issues were very well written and they introduced a very good storyline, something which was very different to Millar’s usual genre when compared with his other creator owned comics.
