Hit-Girl - Mark Millar, John Romita Jr. Disturbing. (Duh.) I found it a better read than the first book, possibly because Hit-Girl is simply way more interesting than Kick-Ass can ever be. She's completely messed up -- but how do you call her "damaged" when her abilities have rendered her virtually invulnerable? Sure, she takes down a mob boss -- and several dozen of his closest associates -- and, okay, the entire population of death row (she was in the neighborhood, so she figured she'd "save the tax-payer a little cash"). But she also conquers the female population of *middle school.* Using pretty much the same skill set.

I guess I'd have to call her my favorite right-wing extremist.
