KICK-ASS 2 FANS GET CREATIVE AT LIVE KICK-ASS COMIC CANV-ASS EVENT IN SHOREDITCH, LONDON
KICK-ASS 2 IS OUT ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD WITH ULTRAVIOLET™ NOW
Last weekend, fans of the KICK-ASS franchise celebrated the release of KICK-ASS 2 on Blu-ray™ and DVD at the Kick-Ass Comic Canv-Ass, recreating writer and executive producer Mark Millar’s favourite scene from the superhero blockbuster.
Comic book buffs and aspiring artists proved they could give John Romita Jr. a run for his money at the Rockwell House Rooftop in Shoreditch, contributing to a giant comic strip that is currently being showcased at the venue and on the official Kick Ass Movie Facebook page.
The fans sketched out the dramatic battle between Hit Girl and Mother Russia under the watchful eye of one of the most foremost street artists in the UK, EndoftheLine Creative Director Jim Vision, and his team of talented artists including Rufus Dayglo, Dr Zadok and Ed Hicks.
People travelled from across the UK to take part in the event, with Louie Moselhi, a student from Aberdeen University, commenting, “I saw the event on Facebook and had to come down as I’m a massive fan of both Kick-Ass and Jim Vision. I’ve never spray painted before but the artists showed me the ropes and I’m really pleased with my finished scene.”
Speaking of the event, Mark Millar said “The event was a fantastic opportunity for fans of KICK-ASS 2 and anyone with a talent for cartooning or a passion for comic books to be involved in the creation of an exciting piece of art. The turnout was amazing and shows just how supportive KICK-ASS fans are. The reason I chose the scene with Hit-Girl versus Mother Russia in the final act is because it shows Hit-Girl, who’s always been the bad-ass of the franchise, up against someone she’s slightly scared of and I loved seeing her really showing us what she’s capable of.”
Anyone that couldn’t make it to Rockwell House yesterday can still take part from home by tweeting pictures of their KICK-ASS 2 inspired sketches with the hashtag #KickAss2DVD or submitting them into a competition to win exclusive merchandise and copies of the DVD via the official Facebook page from tomorrow.
Kick-Ass and Hit Girl return for more action-packed encounters and fearless crusading in KICK-ASS 2. Having inspired a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson; KICK-ASS, Savages) joins forces with his fellow vigilantes in Justice Forever. Meanwhile, Hit Girl AKA Mindy (Chloë Grace Moretz; KICK-ASS, Carrie) is struggling to navigate the terrifying world of High School. But when Red Mist, reborn as The Mother F%&*^r, (Christopher Mintz-Plasse; KICK-ASS, Super Bad) assembles an evil league in his quest to become the world’s first super villain, Mindy is forced to come out of retirement to prevent their total annihilation.
Don’t miss the next installment of explosive action in KICK-ASS 2, packed with dark humour, badass combat, and adrenaline-fuelled fight scenes, available to own on Blu-ray™ and DVD with UltraViolet™ and digital download now.
