    Hit-Girl: the hyper-violent teen ninja “superhero” we saw kick ass with, erm, Kick-Ass in, er, Kick-Ass. Now she’s back doing what she does best: killing bad guys, this time in Colombia for no reason. Is there anything more to this book than that? Noooooooooooope. It’s just that uninspired! Mark Millar can write blood-soaked and brainless but fun comics like Nemesis or even the first Hit-Girl book but he utterly fails to produce anything remotely entertaining with Hit-Girl in Colombia.

Mark Millar can write blood-soaked and brainless but fun comics like Nemesis or even the first Hit-Girl book but he utterly fails to produce anything remotely entertaining with Hit-Girl in Colombia. The action is dull rubbish, the characters are one-dimensional nobodies and the paper-thin story is repetitive and boring. Hit-Girl is never in any real danger at any point and she’s got no skin in the game so the stakes are exactly zero - oh the non-tension! There’s some drek about a mother after revenge for her dead son that was a feeble attempt at giving this nonsense some artificial purpose and it fell completely flat. The ending is too pat and unconvincing. Don’t expect the interior art to look anything like Amy Reeder’s cool covers - Ricardo Lopez Ortiz’s art is scratchy, cheap anime-style drawing that was wholly unappealing and ugly. Maybe Jeff Lemire’s take on the character in the next book - in where else but Canada, eh? - might be better unless it’s just more of the same that we got here. I’ll give Mindy this: she’s got good taste in comics. She’s a fan of Tom King’s Batman - and that’s what I’d recommend reading over Shit-Girl in Colombia.

    This was so terrible I had to double check that Mark Millar wrote this. It made me physically angry at what a piece of shit this was. I like the rest of the Kick Ass series. There's zero story here. Hit-Girl goes to Columbia and kills a bunch of gang members. It reminded me of Luthor Strode in its hyper-violence, lack of story and terrible artwork. Ortiz draws cartoony anime characters with dumb expressions that all look dirty from the amount of lines on their faces.

Hit-Girl is now a super-strong young girl who can chop people in half with an ax and rip car doors off their hinges. The only redeeming quality to the book were the Amy Reeder covers. They were spectacular.

    This was pointless. Dumb simple story and really poor art. I hope Lemire creates something with more life.

    Millar has never been a great writer, but at best his books are big, dumb fun with terrific art from some of the best names in the business. This is just dumb, and it has terrible art to boot. Avoid...though the next volume of this is by Lemire and Risso, so I will check it out.

    It's great to have Hit-Girl back! Kick-Ass has retired and now she's looking for a new partner. However, she gets a case in Colombia and off she goes to get a whole wack of drug lords and gangs. Tons of violence with eyes popping out of exploded heads but the humour doesn't hit the mark of the original series. It has a flippant tone and some good oneliners but not the top-quality humour of the first. I can't wait for the second volume as she's off to Canada next time and who else could be writin It's great to have Hit-Girl back! Kick-Ass has retired and now she's looking for a new partner.

    I was initially unsure how much I might enjoy Hit-Girl in Colombia but I was very pleasantly surprised. While I don't mind lots of blood and violence that isn't a particular draw for me. I like stories and characters, and if violence is part of it, okay. The character of Hit-Girl is wonderful. Not particularly deep (though she has a couple of profound comments) but very much a fun personality as long as you aren't a target. She is snarky and seems to fluctuate between a typical 12 year old and a I was initially unsure how much I might enjoy Hit-Girl in Colombia but I was very pleasantly surprised.

She is snarky and seems to fluctuate between a typical 12 year old and a middle-age business person. The story is both over-the-top and very basic, but in a fun and engaging way. The vengeance at the heart of the story is both understandable and extreme, yet ultimately the message is that people are not inherently bad and with hope everyone can be "good." I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quick fun read with good visuals and a snarky protagonist. Reviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via Edelweiss.

    3.5/5 Took me a while to get used to the art, but once I did I realized it was absolutely gorgeous.

    This of course has the expected ultraviolence, energy and destruction of body parts, but it's missing a bit of the DNA of the originals. There was little creative about the actual script – certainly there is none of the clever cussing I might have expected – and the artwork, while having some nicely graphic deaths (the microwave gun, especially), was messy with needless lines, and sometimes really hard to work out. It wasn't my idea of an ideal match, art-wise.

    LOVE this character! Image's Facebook ad is what made me pick up this trade. The story sounded intriguing, but it's a pretty standard action plot which makes the rereading value kinda non-existent. Also, the artwork is okay so this isn't one of those trades I'll just sit and flip through slowly enjoying the artwork (ex. Goldie Vance). I'm excited that Hit-Girl will be going to Canada next. Hoping the story/art improves with each trade!

    The little maniac is down in Colombia killing all the bad guys with the help of a bad guy on a short leash. She has a lot of jokes but she's not playing at all. Not one bit. It's all gore and dark humor. Pure popcorn entertainment so it's great for what it is. A grieving mother is helping Hit Girl. It's her grief that offers some human emotion to this. The ending made me smile.

    Fiction State Of Mind

    Coyer Summer Bash Hit-Girl made her violent debut in the Kick-Ass comic series. In this new series we see Hit-Girl bringing her sense of justice to Columbia. But Hit Girl finds herself feeling lonely , so she tricks a criminal to help her take out a bunch of violent gangs. This was an action packed adventure but not for the squeamish

    Another poor excuse for the old ultra-violence, rendered pleasantly enough by Ortiz but with nothing underneath the surface. Even if you don't have any redeeming moral or irony, at least make the violence interesting. Make it a bit clever, have some humor maybe...

    Lots of good comic book violence, but there was just something lacking in this one. I think my expectations were too high going in. Too bad. I'll probably read it again one day when I do an entire Kick-Ass re-read, but this part of that world just left me feeling a whole lot of nothing.

    A story of revenge is presented in this graphic novel. The storyline / graphics / characters were all reasonable, but won't appeal to everyone. Overall rating 3.5

    The story wasn't as strong as previous Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl books and I personally didn't care for the style of art. Wall to wall action. I was a bit disappointed.

    Gratuitous violence and predictable, but fans of the Kick-Ass series won’t be surprised. Hit-Girl is more reminiscent of Tank Girl than ever before. Art is great!

    Amazing art, chaotic, funny and vulgar this quick read is very much worth the purchase!

    All the violence you'd expect of the Kick-Ass series but I miss the JRJR artwork.

    The story was ok but the action and art were awesome. It was good enough that I will read more form the Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl series.

    Weak art, not a great story. But I will keep reading especially with the creative team coming for volume 2.

    As violent as ever. Nice to see the character interpreted by someone besides JRJR.

    This was an enjoyable graphic novel. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but I liked it. The end was interesting and not quite what I expected. I'm curious as to what will happen in the next volume!

    Hyper-violent. Lots and lots and LOTS of blood and killing. The story was okay. The characters were a little flat. Overall, not the greatest book I've read, but not nearly the worst. If you are in the mood for some senseless violence and John Wick isn't streaming somewhere this might be something you'd like.
