So once again Mark Waid is putting pen to paper and this time he is writing one the earliest examples of the proto-superhero with the pulp character Green Hornet. Picking up the reigns where Matt Wagner’s fantastic Green Hornet: Year One left off, Waid does a great job of reintroducing us to the world, characters, and motifs of the Golden Age Britt Reid. One of the most impressive feats is his acknowledgment of present times on this first page, and then seamlessly takes us back to 1941. Although the plot of the issue moves a little too fast for my liking, I’m intrigued by what Waid has to say about this character and this time period. The biggest problem this book has is the art, which at times is passable and at other is downright ugly. There are points where the story telling is unclear and even a panel that made me stop and think to myself “is that gun period accurate?”.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 2 - Average


  1. Nice review, although I liked the art more than you did. I feel like its very good art, specially for Dynamite.

  2. I know what you mean about that gun.

    I’d rate the art a “3” or so.

    Very good issue. I’m in for at least 3-4 more.
