Written by Mark Rahner
Art by Ronan Cliquet
Colors by Impacto Studios
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Phil Hester
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: January 25, 2012
Cover Price: $4.99

When it comes to comics relaunches can be hit or miss, but a few years ago when Dynamite Entertainment released their new Green Hornet series I started reading it and instantly fell in love with it. Green Hornet Annual #2 is a great annual one-shot story that not only gets readers caught up on what has been going on, but it’s a great jumping-on point for new readers.

Green Hornet #21
Written by Ande Parks
Pencils by Ronan Cliquet
Colors by Ivan Nunes
Letters by Marshall Dillion
Covers by Phil Hester, Jonathan Lau, and Brian Denham
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: January 18, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

While reading The Green Hornet #21, I just couldn’t help but think “this is a great, old fashioned, mystery man comic.” Month in and month out, this title delivers on that level and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

Ande Parks hasn’t been writing Green Hornet all that long, but he’s really taken to his new job very quickly. I’m most impressed with his use of the reader’s intelligence. A lot of his issues are “one & done” stories that reference past issues WITHOUT the use of footnotes! Can you believe that? A writer that actually believes today’s comic fan has an attention span that goes back more than a month!! Well, on behalf of comic fans, THANK YOU, ANDE!!!

Green Hornet #19
Plot by Phil Hester
Script by Ande Parks
Pencils by Igor Vitorino
Colors by Ivan Nunes
Letters by Marshall Dillion
Covers by Phil Hester, Jonathan Lau, Brian Denham
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: November 2nd, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

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.

Comic Review: Kato #14

Kato #14
Written by Ande Parks
Art by Lee Furguson
Colors by Rainer Petter
Letters by Bill Tortolini
Covers by Ale Garza
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 26, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

OK, now THIS is the bad ass Kung Fu ninja book that you’ve been looking for. Disguised as a superhero comic, Kato #14 is actually like watching a really good martial arts movie. There’s action from start to finish, with some surprises thrown in for good measure.

Writer Ande Parks delivers a fantastic story. Also with the action comes surprises in the few pages that are not solid action, where he actually does some nice character development between the original Kato, and his daughter, Mulan.
