The Black Hornet is history, but a new, even deadlier threat has grown right in the heart of Century City, and it may already be too late for The Green Hornet and Kato to stop it. How can Green Hornet scare a street gang out of business when the gang members themselves have no fear of anything, even death? Is the horrifying power behind their fearless ferocity truly supernatural? And just who is Saint Death?

Green Hornet is no exception and the strong work in this issue, in particular, has got me excited to check out the movie next month (the one that everybody's as dubious about as I was about this series, initially.
