But, to warm you up, we're going with the first "All Green" line art cover by J. Scott Campbell! Enjoy!

    Overall, though, "Green Hornet" #1 is an enjoyable popcorn movie read, especially for someone with no familiarity with the character. It has a nice ending before its beginning, some decent eye candy, and a light-hearted moment or three. It doesn't feel like an adapted work, because it fits into the comic book format wonderfully. I hope the issues adapting the second act of the movie do as well. That will be the test of this series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Andy Bentley Mar 3, 2010

    The story of a rookie Green Hornet in modern times is a good fit for Smith's writing and will hopefully reinvigorate the character. However, the fourteen (!) variant covers and four ancillary titles advertised within this issue are cause for alarm. If anything, the series will be an interesting companion piece to the feature film to be released later this year. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Mar 5, 2010

    Save for a few pages at the end, this issue consists of merely the pre-credits sequence to what would have been Kevin Smiths film. However, its enough to assure audiences that the feature to come will be well worth the price of admission. I, for one, am ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Read Full Review

    Lau is a good artist, but his characters seem too long. Im also not a big fan of his action scenes. What I do like is the colouring. Its bright and vibrant. It helps that the various covers are as enticing as the ones from Now Comics. Read Full Review

    A decent start to the series. Smith tells a good opening story. Fans of street level characters will enjoy this story. The family legacy aspect gives it a different twist from most comics. Read Full Review
