While Mark Millar recently sold Millarworld to Netflix, it looks like two of his properties got to stay at home, due to other deals already being in place. Those two comics, Kingsman and Kick-Ass, already had deals with Matthew Vaughn.

"When we sold Millarworld to Netflix, two properties weren't part of the deal. Kingsman and Kick-Ass both had unique arrangements with Matthew Vaughn and it made sense for these to continue, so in the year or so where we were preparing the sale I came up with this great idea for a whole new take on Kick-Ass."

Millar will continue Kick-Ass with an all new protagonist, Patience Lee, a black military veteran with young children.

"I wanted to shake up the setting a little and shifted the whole thing to New Mexico. The lead is a woman this time, a mother in her early 30s with two young kids. She's also a military vet who came home to find her life in a completely different setting from the way it was when she went to Afghanistan so the actual dynamic of the book is really different, but at the same time the flavor is identical."

The book, returning with artist John Romita Jr., is set to release February 14, 2018.
