    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jul 21, 2020

    The mystery is a straightforward one that doesn't require you to have an encyclopedic knowledge of Green Hornet history or literary symbolism. The action doesn't take several issues and dinner discussions to finally get into gear -- it roars right off the starting line the way a hero comic is supposed to. Read Full Review

    I don't believe I've ever read a Green Hornet comic or watched an episode of the TV series. I know I've never seen the Seth Rogan movie that came out a few years back. I recognize the character of Green Hornet and Kato when I see them but that's the extent of my knowledge base.

    This comic serves as an excellent introduction to the characters in and out of costume. The closest character I can compare the pair too would be the other obvious dynamic duo of Batman and Robin circa 66. The only real difference I see between the characters is that Britt Reid doesn't have the tragic backstory that defines Bruce Wayne's identity.
