Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's title was solicited for June in Previews, but appears to have been left off the sheet that store owners use to request stock, according to Bleeding Cool.
A similar oversight saw Kick Ass 2 #5 from the same creative team missing from order forms last year. The publisher raised awareness of the error, and duplicated retailers' orders for issue #4.
Hit-Girl is a spinoff of Kick-Ass, set between the events of the original series and its sequel. The comic will be also serialised in Millar's CLiNT anthology.
Chloe Moretz's portrayal of the foul-mouthed, violent little girl in the Kick-Ass movie raised some controversy over her swearing during the film. Millar previously dismissed the possibility of developing a Hit-Girl movie.
Hit-Girl #1 will debut with a variant cover design from Leandro Fernandez.
