    While this issue may be pretty light on actual Hornet action, it really is a very well written and interestingly executed one shot. It is streets ahead of the current Green Hornet ongoing and really whets the appetite for more 40's era Hornet action coming in March from Mark Waid. Best of all, since the main character is brand new, this issue is perfect for fans both new and old, so if you've never read any Hornet comics, feel free to dip your toes in here. Read Full Review

With a different take on the dreamer meeting the hero angle, the script and art make something really fresh. Check this one out 4/5BioLatest Posts Read Full Review

    "The Green Gun Girl" comes off a little flat, unfortunately. But I still have to applaud the creative team for trying something a little different. Green Hornet die-hards (ahem"we DO exist) will surely find something to like about it. If nothing else, it may even serve as a fine introduction to the Hornet and his world for younger readers. And, really, I shouldn't complain too much whenever I get a new dose of pulp-style action. Read Full Review
