My thoughts… Epic Kill is a relentless, high-octane action-fest! It’s almost like John Woo teaming up with The Wachowskis to re-make Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill! In the first story arc (issues #1-5), 18-year-old Song channels The Bride by seeking revenge on the man who killed her family. In the second story arc (issues #6-10), Song dresses like The Bride after being forced to become an assassin to save her uncle who is being held hostage by the U.S. government. Epic Kill isn’t comic book Shakespeare but it is an exciting, fast-paced read!
