EXCLUSIVE: Dynamite's Upcoming 'Green Hornet' Releases!

Check out four of Dynamite's upcoming releases!


Have you been reading Dynamite's Green Hornet series? If you have, then you are definitely going to love the preview for all of Dynamite's upcoming Green Hornet releases which are set to hit store shelves this coming August. Dynamite will be releasing not only one, but four Green Hornet books during the month of August, and each cover is more beautiful than the next. 
 
With names like Phil Hester, John Cassaday and Kevin Smith linked to the books, what's not to be excited about? The issue I am most looking forward to though has to be Kevin Smith's Green Hornet Annual #1, which will be written by one of my favorite writers, Phil Hester ( Days Missing, The Darkness).  Check out the cover to the book on the right hand side as well as several of the solicitations for Dynamite's upcoming Green Hornet titles below. Will you be picking up any of these books this August?

@Caligula: It's actually Phil Hester. The original outline was by Kevin Smith, but the dialogue and the story is all Phil, and I agree, he's great! :)

I think it'll be interesting to compare these to the movie when it comes out since the outline by KS was his screenplay for the film before he figured that a Kevin Smith comic book action movie wouldn't work.

I'll be getting all of them. Can't get enough of these guys.
