PRESS RELEASE –
Dynamite Entertainment, a leader in comic book and graphic novel publishing, again teams with Humble Bundle to offer an essential collection of filmmaker Kevin Smith’s fan-favorite work at the publisher. The promotion, which includes over 70 issues (many of which inhabit the universe of Smith’s groundbreaking Green Hornet reimagining), launches today and will run through 11:00am PDT on May 17th. “Humble Comics Bundle: Kevin Smith & Friends Presented by Dynamite” can be found at: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/kevin-smith-comics
Kevin Smith’s first-ever Dynamite series, Green Hornet, took the comic market by storm in 2010 by introducing a modern incarnation of Britt Reid’s masked alter-ego, fighting crime undercover side-by-side with a fearsomely adept female bodyguard, Kato. Smith’s fellow comic book collaborators Phil Hester and Ande Parks expanded on his ten-issue saga with further Green Hornet and Katoprojects. Now, Dynamite Entertainment offers fans an exclusive opportunity to pick up a massive collection of Green Hornet comics by these exceptional talents, and explore their other Dynamite work, as well. Furthermore, projects like Cryptozoic Man — created by Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson of Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men television show — and the Sundance Film Festival movie tie-in Yoga Hosers one-shot (premiering as a digital comic on Humble Bundle for the first time ever) welcome more glimpses into the creative world surrounding one of master storytellers of the modern age.
“Ever since Clerks first ensnared the public consciousness, Kevin Smith has proven time and again to be a true innovator in cinema and comic books. We’ve considered it a pleasure and great honor to work with him throughout the years, bringing his fresh, new ideas to print,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “Working hand-in-hand with Humble Bundle, we’re proud to bring his Green Hornet series to a new audience, growing the comics market and bringing more awareness to the work of Smith, Hester, Parks, and the Cryptozoic Man team of Flanagan and Johnson. Enjoy!”
Part of the proceeds from the “Humble Comics Bundle: Kevin Smith & Friends Presented by Dynamite” promotion will contribute to The Wayne Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading awareness of CSEC occurring in the United States, and providing direct services to young women victimized by commercial exploitation.
