This issue shows how Green Hornet and Kato set up their secret hideout as their origin tale continues.

Dynamite Entertainment has given us another exclusive first look at the continuing story of the origin of Green Hornet.   
 
What I like about this series is I never really thought about Green Hornet's origin before. I didn't necessarily grow up knowing about the character as he was a little before my time but in the late 80s, NOW Comics put out a Green Hornet series that I picked up out of curiosity.  I don't recall if there was ever an origin told or if it just jumped into his story.  
 
With Dynamite, not only are we getting modern stories but we're also getting the set up of the original character. We all know that a good origin is important to making a character great. Matt Wagner has been taking care of telling the tale very nicely.  
 
Speaking of Matt Wagner, while he is only handling the writing part of the series, he is doing the main covers as well. Check out his cover to issue #10 as well as the official synopsis of the issue.

This second half of the original Green Hornet's origin tale continues with a look at how Britt Reid and Kato further develop their crusade against crime, setting up the Hornet's secret hideout and cobbling together the special tools and weapons they will need.  In the "present day" of 1938, in an effort to break the brutal grip of mob-boss, Skid Caruso, on 1930s Chicago, our crime-fighting duo stage their own campaign of intimidation, leading all the way up to the Mayor's office!  Unbeknownst to them, Caruso has called in out-of-town muscle to break the Hornet's forays into his criminal territory--the deadly enforcer nick-named "THE SCOURGE"!   

Green Hornet Year One #10 is on sale in January.

I was never a Green Hornet fan. The show was before my time and I never read the Now Comics stuff. I've been keeping up with both Kevin Smith's Hornet series and Year One since the first issue. Really good stuff. Wagner manages to pull off the 1930's speak without it coming off as cheesy and Campbell's attention to the small details is really amazing. Dont underestimate this series.
