GOOD THING: Kevin Smith's gift for dialogue really comes through here and his usual jokey-style seems a natural fit for a Golden Age hero like The Hornet.
BAD THING: The ads for the many other Green Hornet mini-series coming out soon are a distraction from the comic. This is an odd bit of criticism, I admit, but there are some page breaks where the reader can be thrown by just how much the advert art looks just like what they are reading now.
The Final Verdict: A solid first issue, establishing the classic Green Hornet for those who are unfamiliar with the original character. Smith's writing is solid pulp at its' finest with the artwork by Hester and Lau being picture perfect. This is one to keep an eye on, folks!
