Ross and Rivera cover Green Hornet
As announced at New York Comic-Con, Mark Waid’s Green Hornet is coming from Dynamite is 2013! March 2013, to be specific! The interiors are guaranteed to be incredible with Mark Waid’s brilliant writing, and rising star, Daniel Indro on interiors. But we are premiering the covers of Alex Ross and Paolo Rivera, for this amazing first issue!
“Writing the Green Hornet is a dream come true,” says writer Mark Waid. “It’s our goal to reinvigorate the characters, remind readers why he’s still relevant, and underscore the elements of the Hornet that make him unique among crime fighters. Seriously, Alex outdid himself with a dead-on pop-art distillation of the spirit of our new approach. I’m awestruck. And everyone who’s been buying DAREDEVIL knows that Paolo is one of the greatest cover artists working today, but what he’s doing with the Hornet shows an amazing versatility as well.”
“I remember my high school English teacher telling me ‘There are no new stories, just fresh ones,’” adds cover artist Paolo Rivera! “Mark has many specialties, but one of his greatest skills is the ability to take iconic characters and reassemble their motivations in a way that was always there, but somehow overlooked. With Green Hornet, Mark seems to be pitting him against his own success, forcing him to earn his iconic status all over again. The result is a true test of his character, at once classic and fresh.”
In Mark Waid’s Green Hornet #1, The Hornet faces his most dangerous enemy ever–an egotistical, arrogant Britt Reid! In his alter-ego as a powerful newspaper publisher, the Hornet has lost control, becoming a social crusader far too sure of himself and of his judgment. But when he finally goes too far, an innocent man pays a terrible price–and the legend of the Green Hornet begins its cataclysmic collapse!
Make sure to pick up the incredible first issue of Mark Waid’s Green Hornet in March 2013!
