Kevin Smith to Write Image Comics' "Hit-Girl Season Two #1"
PORTLAND, OR — Award winning actor, director, and writer Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) will join bestselling artist Pernille Ørum (DC Super Hero Girls) on the new story arc of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s beloved Hit-Girl series this February in, Hit-Girl Season Two #1.
Smith is a Harvey Award-winning writer and has garnered critical acclaim for his comics writing with Daredevil, Green Arrow, and tie-stories to Clerks and Dogma. His career success extends beyond the comics industry sphere with previous recognition at Sundance Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, and multiple Maverick Awards.
Ørum’s rich background in animation and experience with clients such as Disney, Warner Brothers, Mattel Playground, and Nickelodeon Jr. puts a bright, fresh spin on the artistic direction of Hit-Girl.
In this dream creative team’s spin on Hit-Girl, readers’ favorite adolescent assassin tears Tinsel Town a new one when she realizes her life’s being dramatized for the silver screen. Hit-Girl storms sets, wages war on fat-cat movie bosses, and lures old enemies out of hiding in this Californian bloodbath.
Hit-Girl Season Two #1 hits stores on Wednesday, February 13th, 2018. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, January 21st, 2018.
