Julian Meynell's Books

I like Books.


Kick-Ass - Mark Millar, John Romita Jr., Rob Liefeld A good graphic novel, which is under-appreciated and better than the movie in some ways, although not all. I always like deconstructions of the Superhero myth and this is a good one.

Hit Girl is the most interesting character and cleverly realized and the change in the movie of her and Big Daddy's origin story was a mistake.

The art is OK. I think that it might have worked better if it was either a little less or a little more manga inspired. The graphic violence of it is very good.

Clever and pleasingly catharticly violent.
