Kick Ass is a brand spankin' new series, written by Mark Millar, started off in April's a short summary...

Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming. However, one day he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training

As you can probably see, just looking through that summary, and the attached picture, that this one is pretty darn unconventional. It's pretty darn violent, too, and quite profane...but then again, you're not going to be saying things like 'Blistering Buttercups!' when you're being tortured with a Car Battery wired to your nuts, now, are you?

It completely defies all precedents by showing what REALLY might happen if someone straps on a spandex suit and goes looking for trouble in a rough neighbourhood...not fame and glory, but scars, bruises, life threatening injuries and maybe even the aforementioned car battery burns on your privates...

Look around on the intarwebs and you'll find this comic in a cbr format for easy reading...I've got chapter one and three, and if anyone gets their hands or mouse on chapter 2, be sure to tell me...
