Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci.

The Green Hornet is one of comicdom’s first
masked crime fighters. Originally created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker for an
American radio program in the 1930’s, the character has appeared in
other media as well, including film serials in the 1940’s, a network television program
in the 1960s, and multiple comic book series from the 1940s to the
1990s. Though various incarnations sometimes change details, in most
incarnations the Green Hornet is Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by
day who by night goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity to fight
crime as a vigilante, accompanied by his similarly masked Asian
manservant Kato and driving a car, equipped with advanced technology,
called "Black Beauty".

The critics
say – "Green Hornet" is a hit!

"It’s nice to read something
with the same energy of a Kevin
Smith movie without immediately being able to tell it’s a Kevin Smith script. He
levels out his trademark styles and focuses on the action within. 
Here’s hoping this kind of quality can continue throughout and become an
evergreen tale for this forgotten character." – Noel Bartocci, Broken

"The first issue is a lot of fun, with
plenty of action and verbal darts getting thrown. The pacing as the
Hornet sneaks up on a Mafia gang and a Chinese gang hoping to throw in
together against the Hornet is well done." – Mel Odom, Blog Critics

"The story of
a rookie Green Hornet in modern times is a good fit for Smith’s writing
and will hopefully reinvigorate the character.  If anything, the series
will be an interesting companion piece to the feature film to be
released later this year." – Andy Bentley, IGN

"This comic simply works. It
makes sense. We see the original Green Hornet at the end of his career.
Phil Hester did the breakdowns and Jonathan Lau does the pencils. It’s a
really nice looking comic. I should also mention that Ivan Nunes colors
really complement the art as well. The action scenes are intense. You
really get a sense that the Green Hornet and Kato are tough dudes." –
G-Man, Comic Vine
