Cover by ALEX ROSS

Roaring to adventure from the Golden Age of radio, comes one of America’s first superheroes—THE GREEN HORNET! The time period is the 1930s and Chicago is ruled by a criminal empire that answers to no one and even holds the authorities in an iron-fisted grip. Accompanied by his faithful crime-fighting companion KATO, newspaper heir Britt Reid assumes a mysterious, masked identity in order to combat the criminal corruption that threatens to destroy his city.  For the first time ever, the origins and motivations of this classic character are explored and revealed in a story that combines historical accuracy with thrilling pulp drama!  Eisner Award-winning author MATT WAGNER (Grendel, Trinity, Zorro) and artist AARON CAMPBELL (Sherlock Holmes) weave an archetypical tale of heroism and intrigue that redefines this timeless tale for a whole new generation. Ride with Britt Reid and Kato in the powerful Black Beauty as they match wits with ruthless gangsters and racketeers.   Learn their secrets as they first begin their unique crusade against crime—THE GREEN HORNET: YEAR ONE!

“Matt Wagner does the same trick here that he did with Zorro, cutting straight to the heart of the matter, showing us WHY the character’s tics and habits work… making the story work if you’ve never read Green Hornet before.  Year One is excellent work from top to bottom, from story to art… 5 out of 5 stars.”  – MAJOR SPOILERS.COM

“Green Hornet: Year One is a terrific comic series and does justice above and beyond to one of the great classic radio heroes of all time.  Any pulp fan worth his fedora would be wise to pick it up.”  – PULP FICTION REVIEWS
