KICK-ASS #7 will launch an exciting new story arc for the series and introduce an all-new creative team to the KICK-ASS brand—Steve Niles and Marcelo Frusin—who will succeed original series creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
“When we sold Millarworld to Netflix, the one, and the only downside was not being able to write more Kick-Ass with my new executive role, and so I did the next best thing—I got my favorite writer to continue Patience Lee’s adventures,” said Millar. “Steve Niles is without question my favorite writer in comics, and I rank 30 Days of Night as my favorite graphic novel of the last 20 years. I’m honored he’s taken the time to do this and slightly in awe that, like Jeff Lemire on Hit-Girl, he’s already outclassed me on this book. I finally get to enjoy Kick-Ass as a reader!”
Romita Jr. added: “I’m lucky enough to work with Mark again, but even luckier to have worked on Kick-Ass again, as well. Every time someone worries that the same old, same old is in line for another go ’round with a title, Mark Millar completely crosses people up with something completely different.
My attempt on every new panel, page, and story is to do something different. I think Peter Steigerwald and I have managed to do that, and Peter’s brilliant color art is so vital to that difference. Overall, the three of us have provided something unexpected, and in all humility, excellent! I’m proud to have worked with Mark, Peter, John Workman and editor Rachael Fulton on this Kick-Ass title and so thrilled to hand the reins over to Steve Niles and Marcelo Frusin. I’m confident these two great talents will grab a hold and run with Kick-Ass seamlessly.
I can only speak for myself, but I will severely miss this lady in the Kick-Ass costume. Pretty sure Mark and Peter agree.”
In KICK-ASS #7—Kick-Ass has wiped out Hoops Lucero and seized control of his criminal operations, but Violencia’s set to bust out of jail and get his bloody revenge on our favorite superhero.
“I am really happy to continue the superb work of Mark and John on Kick-Ass,” said Frusin. “The new character is gorgeous and I enjoy working on the book every day. I like drawing the world of Kick-Ass and its villains—Steve’s scripts are wonderful and the color work Sunny is doing is amazing. It’s great to have a team like this. I love doing Kick-Ass!”

Niles added: “I am absolutely having the time of my life working on Kick-Ass. It’s a thrill to be continuing the work set out by Mark and John and wonderful to be working with Marcelo and Sunny.”
