From the pages of Bill Willingham's LEGENDERRY, it's Green Hornet and Kato, goggles-deep in an all-out steampunk gang war! We've got airships! Electric velocipedes! Semi-automatic blunderbusses! Each gang and gang lord is weirder than the last, beginning with the child psychopath who starts the war, the adorable and deadly "Little Lord Homicide." But who's pulling the boy's strings?

    I know slapping gears and metal, and making everyone dress in Victorian garb may be off-putting to some, but mixing it with pulp tales really works. Fans of Green Hornet will see many familiar elements of their favorite hero, but with a twist that keeps him fresh. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 17, 2015

    There are three miniseries attached to the Legenderry universe, and of this, Red Sonja and Vampirella, this one comes out looking the weakest, though still a readable story. It may not be extremely noteworth, but it still captures the essence of steampunk which so few series attempt and even fewer manage to do effectively. It succeeds by not focusing too much on the main heroes, and this results in a fun and entertaining story which fits well within the shared universe. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 18, 2015

    Legenderry: Green Hornet #1 does a great job of kicking off this mini-series, as though there's a lot to be improved upon, there is a lot of promise within this opening issue. The array of villains also intrigues, and along with the exciting art, this series is worth giving a try. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Feb 18, 2015

    On the other hand do you remember what I said up there? The first thing? About an electric Penny-farthing bicycle? THERE'S A FUCKING ELECTRIC PENNY-FARTHING BICYCLE HERE! There's a whole electric Penny-farthing bicycle gang! Which brings me to this books strongest aspect: this issue excels in imagery. Everything from the designs of the vehicles, the new look of Green Hornet and villain Tik Tok are wonderfully designed and then brought to life through the clean, bright art. For now the visual design and promise get it a pass, I'm willing to wait and see how this plays out but so far the Legenderry line could go either way but is at risk of tipping into the "dislike" category for me.

    Overall, I can see how this book will hit all of the right notes for the steampunk crowd. If that's your gig, then you'll like this book. If you're already following any of the otherLegenderry titles, then consider picking this one up. For me, it was an okay book. Not much bad to say about it but it's not making me want to ready anything else in the series. Read Full Review
