I just finished the comic in one sitting as i was going to bed two nights ago. I don't understand how we now have to hate on comic book movies that stick to the source material, we used to be the opposite. Sirc is right on, imo.
That **** annoys me. I hate people because their opinions are **** and generally fickle.

I have to agree with Steve as well.
Okay I've not read the comics or seen the movie but I do have a question about the comics. Does Kick-Ass take place on Earth-616 or one of the others?
Here's hoping for a spinoff just called "Hit Girl" where Kick-Ass gets brutally murdered within 15 minutes of the movie starting and Hit-girl goes on a quest for revenge that involves endless over the top slaughter ala the last half of Rambo 4.

No connection to Marvel Universe, Ultimates, Zombies, etc...
Oh, you guys were being goofy, weren't you? *nevermind*
Also, while I'm all for a movie in which Hit Girl seeks bloody vengeance with beheadings, eviscerations, amputations, and a generally high body count a la Rambo 4... can we leave out the hog scene from Rambo 4? :new_shock
I actually found it hard to eat bacon for awhile after that, especially while my daughter sang "Circle of Life." And I love bacon.
BTW, we need a Hit Girl icon.
