Are you excited about Kick-Ass? If not, you certainly should be. Matthew Vaughn directs the adaptation of the popular Mark Millar (Wanted) comic in which teenagers dress up like superheros and take to the streets looking to fight crime. It is a vulgar, violent and insanely cool. And to celebrate the release of the movie (April 16), Titan Books is releasing a very special companion book called Kick-Ass: Creating the Comic, Making the Movie. It features never-before-seen art, script excerpts and commentary from Mark Millar. I had a chance to leaf through one this week, and it’s awesome. An anthology of badassery, if I may. And lucky for you, we’ve got a few to give away. Read on for more information.

The essential companion to the movie, based on the bestselling comic book by Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr. When an average high school student sets out to become the self-styled superhero Kick-Ass, he soon finds himself in over his head after meeting “the real deal” in the shape of pint-sized lethal weapon Hit Girl and her intimidating mentor, Big Daddy. With Mark Millar as your guide, get the lowdown on the creation of the comic and the making of the film, with eye-popping art from the original comics, unseen John Romita movie artwork, script extracts and hundreds of movie photos! Adults only!
