Normal girl turns into vigilante after being shot and kills dirty cops. Sadly, this story is very apropos to our current state of society.

Kick-Ass is to Spider-Man what Scarlet is to Batman.

Obnoxious and overblown first volume of a creator owned series. Young woman turns anarchist vigilante after her boyfriend is killed and she's put in the hospital by a cop who gets promoted. Alex Maleev's art is wasted thanks to the writer, who persists in having multiple frames of pretty much the same pose over and over again. Bendis himself is true to form, giving us variations on an endless run of truly unpleasant people, all of whom are merely parroting his words. There are plenty of writers in the industry who write characters who talk a lot, but they also take great care to write those characters in their own distinct voices. In doing so, those characters never seem grating. Bendis, however, is entirely incapable of doing this, and his own personal voice is the equivalent of fingernails on a blackboard.

Brian Michael Bendis' Scarlet fits the moment of the Occupy Wall Street movement and feels pretty cathartic. It's an angry clear shout of truth to power. I'm not a big fan of photo-derived comic art but this one fits the story nicely. Bendis' strong character writing is also present.

Really good first collection made me excited to see where it goes. Somehow directly after this was put out the occupy wall street movements started that are eerily similar to stuff in the book. If you like bendis' Powers or even Avengers books and want to check out something different without superheroes check this out.
