The 'Kick Ass' Movie Publicity Photo

This is kind of neat. The underground comic book, "Kick Ass," the brain child of creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. is already in production as a movie.

I don't even think issue #6 has hit the shelves yet, so the movie production might actually be further along in the story than the comic book. Odd, but I'll take it because this comic book is a such a breath of fresh air ... it's urban, gritty, violent, bloody, foul-mouthed and yet innocent, with the lead character being a starry-eyed teenager with no powers that tries to be the world's first 'real' superhero.

Life is immitating art as there are now legions of real people playing dress up these days. I don't think they are actually trying to fight bad guys, which make this comic/movie truly ... kick ass! Pun intended. 'Nuff said.
