Another great, great issue of The Green Hornet! This title literally keeps getting better with each issue. I never expected this title to take on its own mythos, let alone explore and develop it to this degree.
Writer Ande Parks is really hitting his stride on this title. This issue is largely the villains origin story and Parks manages to pull off something rarely done-make the reader care about and despise the villain at the same time. Parks does a fantastic job bringing real characterization to this book, and I hope that he keeps it up. On a side note, his writing here makes me all that much more excited for his The Lone Ranger comic launching in January.
Artist Igor Vitorino does a fantastic job artistically on this issue. He’s really got the look of the characters down, as well as the look and feel of the Green Hornet “universe.” His page layouts are great and he’s got a real talent for storytelling.
This issue of The Green Hornet is pure action and story from start to finish. It’s issues like this that remind me why this is one of my favorite comics being published today. Highly recommended.
