Summary
"Dave Lizewski is just an ordinary teenager. He's not the class jock or class clown, just a regular comic-book nerd with a superhero obsession and a crush on his biology teacher. But Dave has big dreams. Big, ass-kicking, vigilante superhero dreams. By day he's stuck in class, by night he slips on a mask and becomes Kick-Ass. With no special powers or superhuman strength, Dave's superhero career gets off to a shaky start, as he finds himself facing off with New York's most feared criminals. When Kick-Ass becomes a viral sensation, other masked heroes start cropping up across the city -- Red Mist, Big Daddy, and the pint-sized death machine they call Hit-Girl. Dave Lizewski knows his superhero hobby is dangerous, but he's got the itch and it ain't going away..."--Back cover
