Set during the early 1940s in the city of Chicago, Green Hornet is the story of a hero who stands up against crime and corruption plaguing his city. By day, Britt Reid is the publisher of the Daily Sentinel. At night, he roams the mean streets of Chicago, disguising himself as the Green Hornet. However, Britt Reid is no ordinary hero. While other alter egos fight for the side of good, Green Hornet pretends to be a criminal, gaining the respect of Chicago’s shady underworld. Britt then uses his connections with the Green Hornet to expose criminals and corrupt officials through the Daily Sentinel. With his sidekick Kato, the Green Hornet sets out to hunt down the criminal elements of his city, by pretending to be one.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve checked in with my favorite radio/pulp hero migrated to comics, so long that the last time I was in Hornet-ville, the hero had six or ten monthly books. With the movie version under-performing a couple of years ago, Britt and Kato are down to one regular monthly book, and there are some heavy happenings in Century City. What will happen to the Hornet legacy if there’s no one to carry the big green fedora? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
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!
Lately, Mark Waid has been on a roll lately, cranking out awesome after awesome with Daredevil, The Rocketter, and others, and in 2013 he’s going to do the same thing to the Green Hornet!
