"Kick-Ass" goes back to press

With “Kick-Ass” No. 1 selling out at Diamond, Marvel is going back to press with a second printing. The new series, by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., is about a comics-obsessed kid who decides to become a superhero. He’s not much of a hero — no powers, no burning desire to do good. And the story’s pretty brutal in action and language. (When the story opens with the hero’s testicles in danger, you know it’s not your everyday book.) But I’ll keep reading, if for no other reason to see how the story even goes on after the hero’s plight on the last page.
