Kick-Ass Returns!

Marvel Comics announced their solicitations today for the month of August, and buried down at the bottom of the list was the info for Mark Millar’s (currently at work on Nemesis and Ultimate Avengers amongst others) and John Romita Jr.’s (currently penciling The Avengers) follow-up to their comic book series Kick-Ass.

Titled Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, the series will be out on August 4th (hopefully, the first series met with several delays). No word yet on if a sequel to the movie adaptation is planned. I’ve got to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised about how fast they’re getting this new series onto the shelves after the success of the first.

Here’s what Marvel had to say in their solicitation:

The sequel to the biggest creator-owned comic of the decade–the one that spawned the number one hit movie and the worldwide phenomenon–is here! KICK-ASS is back, just as over-the-top as ever! As everybody’s favorite psychotic 11-year-old HIT GIRL trains KICK-ASS to be…well, a bad-ass, RED MIST gathers a team of super-villains to take them down! It’s super hero mayhem as only MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA JR. can bring you!
