    Now, I tend to not try to delve into spoilers for the stories I review that much anymore. I'm not going to do that here, either. I will say, though, that this is one of the best books I have read and experienced in a long time. It has a captivating storyline, it has character development (including the secondary level of characters " even those who don't quite make the cut as long-term supporting characters), and it has a visual presence that is one of the best I have seen in recent months. There are many great artists that I love to see, but very few that I think could do justice to this style of a story. It's a superhero story without super powers " and that's what makes these pulp characters so enthralling. This is why I am loving the Dynamite line of books with the pulp hero era " the quality of the stories are some of the best I have read in a long time and this quality is what has me experiencing more of the Dynamite line on a monthly basis.

    Waid offers up another stunning issue. Like I said above, we've seen Britt Reid start to crack up as both the newspaper man and the vigilante, but he completely shatters this time around. It's very rare that you're completely and utterly shocked reading a story, but I have to say the two big twists in this issue took me by surprise. Indro's art and Menyz's colors are top notch as always. This issue is a little more straightforward than the previous entries with their stylish newspaper backgrounds, but we still get great characters and fantastic backgrounds. I would read this book if it was nothing but Indro drawing the city and those great retro cars. There's a chase sequence involving the Black Beauty that is especially pleasing. Read Full Review

    Before he leaves, Kato accuses Britt Reid of acting like a god, casting thunderbolts from on high. I look forward to reading more of this series to see exactly how high Reid gets before his inevitable fall. I wonder who will cast the bolt that strikes him. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 7, 2013

    The comic does a good job at showing us events from both Reid and Kato's perspective as Reid's harsh (but in his mind necessary) tactics are viewed completely different even by his best friend. I don't think we need worry a permanent split between the pair, but it's likely things will continue to get worse between the Hornet and Kato before they get better. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jul 4, 2013

    Overall, the third installment of Waid's series is the most engaging read yet. The Green Hornet/Kato relationship is strained and what happens in the end with that will leave you speechless. Looking for a superhero comic like Batman? Check out Mark Waid's the Green Hornet. Read Full Review
