Spoiler alert: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, there are no coked up jungle animals in this one like we got in Hit-Girl #2. But don't worry, there's plenty to look forward to.
As Hit-Girl starts pushing for Mano to take out his former comrades, he starts to get cold feet and looks for a way out. But he should know that Hit-Girl always has a backup plan to the backup plan.
This installment in the Hit-Girl series takes a more serious turn after the last issue. As much fun as that was, this is when we start to see our hero face a true challenge. Up to this point, even in the craziest of situations, she has been in full control. But can she find a way to outsmart Mano?
One of my favorite things about this series is the art. Ricardo Lopez Ortiz has a great style, and it fits in perfectly with the type of action that happens in Hit-Girl. My personal preference is usually to read the story, then go back for the art, but it's impossible to ignore the artwork as I read through one of these issues.
As we move one step closer to the Columbia conclusion, I can't wait to see where this story goes!
