Dynamite Entertainment is bringing the Green Hornet back to comics, and Kevin Smith will be at the helm.Â According to Smith, he already has the story done.
“It’s the Hornet movie I’d make if I was making it today. And there’s no better time to do that than before Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry’s version defines the character for the mainstream. We haven’t picked an interior artist yet, but we’ve got some stellar cover talent on board already: Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Jae Lee, and David Finch.”
I wasn’t overly impressed with Smith’s Cacophony story, and he is in the middle of a new Batman story, but I do like Smith enough to give anything he’s working on a chance.

The Green Hornet has appeared in comics, starred on radio and TV and remains one of the most popular and iconic super heroes of our time. Through most of his various incarnations the Green Hornet is Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by day, who by night goes out in his masked Green Hornet identity to fight crime as a vigilante, accompanied by his similarly masked Asian manservant Kato and driving a car, equipped with advanced technology, called Black Beauty.
