In this issue of The Green Hornet, we see Britt Reid go through the aftermath of The Voice debacle. The board is furious, Kato is gone, and everyone blames Britt for Mills attempted suicide.

I wasn’t that familiar with The Green Hornet before reading this series. Though I know this character was around during the radio serials, I was only really familiar with the property from the movie, which I wasn’t really able to get into. This comic is different.

The egoism of Britt is much less superficial and comical, almost coming across and off tilt and dangerous. This is due to the amazing writing. The characters feel real and the issues between Britt and Kato have weight. Mark Waid continues to amaze and I look forward to reading more.

The art is clean and crisp, fitting with the characters. It has a old time pulp feel, with bright colors and detailing more on the objects than the characters. This completely corresponds to the history of this character and the time period.

This issue of The Green Hornet is wonderful, expanding greatly on the story from the previous issues. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the Green Hornet character, though it might be helpful to catch up to this issue first. I highly recommend it.
