Being way ahead of the Hollywood cool-curve, we spotlighted Kick Ass over 6 months ago!
If you haven’t read this comic book yet – let me tell this book kicks ass so many ways til Sunday it’s ridiculous!
KICK-ASS tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers!
His new crime-fighting career immediately nosedives – in his first encounter he gets the living sh*t beat outta him and lands in the hospital for months!! But his actions inspires others to turn to vigilantism and soon a trend starts. And the he gets tangled up with real life mobsters.
But the fun REALLY starts when he also discovers a deadly father/daughter crime fighting duo who run around murdering bad guys! This is where the story gets awesome-ly insane! 😀
1st prints of Kick Ass #1 comic book sell as high as $50 on Ebay! Based on the pic above, i think its safe to say that this motion picture will truly kick Hollywood box office Ass!!
