    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 22, 2010

    Theres a lot of discussion about whether we need 5 monthly titles featuring (fill-in-the-blank: Wolverine, Batman, Deadpool, Claudio Sanchez) but each of the monthly Hornet books has a specific place, time and perspective on the characters. Kato Origins #1 (Way Of The Ninja seems to be the title of the arc, and I cant tell if its a mini or an ongoing) is a good read, well-written, thought-provoking, and pretty as hell, earning 4.5 out of 5 stars overall. As a Green Hornet fan since college, its good to see the big guy and his majordomo back in the spotlight in such a quality book Read Full Review

    The artwork on that book is very good. All Asian characters actually look Asian and not like Caucasians painted yellow or Caucasians with tiny slits for eyes. The few action shots were good too. They were much easier to comprehend then in the Green Hornet comic book. This will be very important as Kato is the type of visual series that reader want to see a lot of martial art action from. Perfect choregraphy of moves will be important. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Apr 21, 2010

    "Kato Origins" #1 is a good beginning to the series and offers a clear, confident take on the character. The art works best when taken one panel at a time and the narration doesn't come together at the end, but it's engaging and shows promise for the series as a whole. Read Full Review
