    Overall, a pretty good closer to this arc. It has some really brutal action and ends up being an issue that sets up a new beginning. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Patrick Halpin Aug 28, 2012

    While I love the series as a whole, this issue definitely was one of the weaker ones. The final chapter of the current story arc, it doesnt go out with the bang it felt like they were building towards. Mostly were treated to a repeat of the same brawl between the Green Hornet and his imposter that we saw last issue, though seemingly less plausible this time around as theyd nearly beaten each other to death last time. There was just no energy to the fight sequence, as you knew the villain was already beaten, it just turns into a slugfest until he escapes. It felt as if they needed to squeeze in an action scene so that the whole issue wouldnt be epilogue, which after the lackluster fight its just that, an epilogue. Lots of loose ends are tied up and addressed and the Green Hornet champions his renewed vigor and purpose. All is right with the world, now lets continue the war on crime. Overall it felt like what it was, a closing chapter. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Sep 4, 2012

    The Green Hornet is an unreconstructed 1930s pulp character and, as such, he doesn't fit well into the modern world. Perhaps I'm prejudiced, but I can't square the Hornet with a world of cell phones and Internets. I'm going to try to get the next issue and start fresh with another story line in case I've misjudged the book. Taken as a single issue, though, it's got fun action and street-level super heroics, but it's only worth picking up if you've been following the arc or are at least a fair-weather fan of the title. Two and a half stars. Read Full Review
