I started putting ideas together for this as far back as 2003 and writing properly in 2006 for the February 2008 launch. Since then we've had two movies, two video-games (new one out in November), back-packs, posters, key rings, fridge magnets, stickers, action figures, two soundtrack albums and a hundred other things I can't even remember at the moment. 23 issues in total have been published so far and as Kick-Ass 3 concludes this whole thing will have been 28 issues. These characters have been very good to us. Johnny and I will miss them.
But the ending is a corker and we're really, really pleased where this final arc goes. This is an utterly satisfying ending for us, a very exciting finale, and we hope you guys enjoy it too. I've had issue eight hand-written for weeks now, but just typing it up today and cleaning it up before a week doing something else and back to finish the week after next. Quite a sight to be typing the below when this whole series has been so life-changing for us.
Here's a preview. Sniff!
