This issue should have come out much sooner in the run than number three.

I very nearly didn’t pick it up after the lackluster first and second issues, but this month’s edition of the the 1990/2010 Green Hornet had great action and a good reveal on the last page. I’m a little disappointed that the book seems to be taking the exact same trajectory as the NOW comics run of the late 90s, but I’m probably the only person who’s read those, so it’s no great loss. The art was a bit lackluster and it’s easy to see why direct adaptation of a film script is not the best way to write a comic, but “Kevin Smith’s” Green Hornet is slowly proving itself to be a worthy piece of Dynamite’s steadily ballooning Hornet line.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. You’re not the only one who read the NOW Comics run. I loved that run!


    It’s sad to see Dynamite taking the same steps NOW did. Think about it: current series staring the descendant of the previous Green Hornet with a female Kato. A series about the origins of the originals. A Kato series. And finally, a series about a Green Hornet in the future. Dynamite is treading the same ground, but they seem to be doing it with more style than substance.

  2. I’m glad someone else noticed. It really shocked me when they announced their "original" line of Hornet books. Really disappointing, but at least this modernization/legacy feels a little more modern (though I always loved the detail of Paul, the failed Green Hornet, from the NOW books).

  3. Who can forget the Neal Adams cover and star studded origin from the NOW run?

    I still have issues complete with the posters.

    As for Kevin Smith’s take, I for one am loving it. Between this and "First Wave" books from DC I am one happy guy.
