Elektra 1 Header

Elektra #1, part of Marvel’s new Running With the Devil series, came out last week, and our girl had an adventure! Elektra Natchios left New York and Matt Murdock to “hide in plain sight” in Las Vegas. Of course she finds trouble in the form of Arcade, a deadly trickster.

Geeks of Doom got the chance to interview writer Matt Owens (of Luke Cage fame), on what’s in store for the stealthy assassin, his comic-writing wish list, and more!

Check out the interview below.

Green Hornet, Vol. 2 review
Green Hornet, Vol. 2: Birth of a Villain
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Ronilson Freire
Colors by Marcio Menyz
Letters by Troy Peteri
Collection Cover by Paolo Rivera
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: November 26, 2014
Cover Price: $24.99

Green Hornet, Vol. 2 contains the final chapters of writer Mark Waid‘s excellent run with Green Hornet. That’s the bad news. The good news is, we got thirteen fantastic issues of The Green Hornet from Waid, and who knows? Maybe someday he’ll come back to the character.

95% of the time, Waid can do no wrong. OK, I’m sure he’s had his misses in the past, but I really can’t think of one off the top of my head. From the industry-changing Kingdom Come to The Flash to The Fantastic Four to Empire and beyond, he’s done it all, and done it very well. This book is no exception. What we get here is what The Green Hornet is SUPPOSED to be! I’m talking about what he was created for. Fighting crime, undercover, in the 1930s. Not some updated version where changes are made just for changes sake. You get the Green Hornet being a criminal in the presence of other criminals and the police, but secretly foiling sinister criminal plots and, in a very roundabout way, saving the day. The plot is fairly intricate, but not at any time confusing or misleading. Besides that, you’ve got pretty much everything in this volume. Romance, spying, mystery, intrigue, friendship, Nazis, and a really important lesson about legacy.

The Green Hornet #10 cover by Paolo RiveraThe Green Hornet #10
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Ronilson Freire
Colors by Marcio Menyz
Letters by Troy Peteri
Covers by Paolo Rivera and Jonathan Lau
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 5, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

The Green Hornet #10, while a really good comic, made me feel a little bad inside. A little broken-hearted. Why? Because it feels like things are wrapping up for this series (it ends with issue #13). But, that aside, this issue is pretty intense.

Mark Waid loves writing The Green Hornet. But, I think, this issue he loved writing the villains just a little bit more. This issue is VERY heavy on the battle between the bad guy “families” while the Hornet and Kato wait at the sidelines for them each to take out each other, then swoop in for the kill. Now, the story is MUCH more complex than that, obviously; there’s some great twists and turns and a FANTASTIC shock ending. All classic Mark Waid. And all VERY entertaining.

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.
