Kick-Ass 2 Prelude: "Hit-Girl"

Graphic Novel

Story: 4
Overall rating: 4

“Hit-Girl” is situated after “Kick-Ass” and before “Kick-Ass 2” and is told from Mindy’s perspective. It’s interesting to see how Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl’s dynamics shifted and it was good to see some more of her step-father.
Chris’ adventures on the way to become a kung-fu master were also quite amusing.

In “Hit-Girl”  Mindy realizes that while she was taught to survive everything life-threatening, no one has taught her how to survive her own life and how to handle the social jungle.
I think she really sees that Peter Parker may pull a mask on in order to become Spiderman,  but she actually is Hit-Girl and “Mindy” is more of an alias.

What I don’t get is Mindy’s mom. In both "Kick-ass" 1 & 2 it's said that Mindy's mom is dead, but at the beginning of "Hit-Girl" she actually introduces her  as a character (very much alive)? 
I’m a bit confused?

Still, the art was decent, the story was interesting and it gave me some answers after reading “Kick-Ass 2”.
