Exclusive Look At Green Hornet 2 Cover

Posted by inferiorego (21111 posts) - - Show Bio

Dynamite hooked us up with a look at one of the four covers available for the second issue of Green Hornet. This cover, done by Stephen Segovia . , of the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato. (Yes, Kato is a woman in this series, not a man, and I never was attracted to Kato in the past, but there's just something about a tough woman kneeling on a pile of skulls that makes me smile.  The book has four different main covers and also some variants for the avid collectors out there.

 Covers by ALEX ROSS (25%), JOHN CASSADAY (25%), MARC SILVESTRI (25%) & STEPHEN SEGOVIA (25%)
1-in-25 retailer incentive black, white & green cover by JOHN CASSADAY
1-in-50 retailer incentive black, white & green cover by ALEX ROSS
1-in-100 retailer incentive black, white & green cover by MARC SILVESTRI
Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet #2 green foil cover by JOHN CASSADAY

Essentially 8 covers for the book. This series comes to you from comic writing guru Kevin Smith:

 The Green Hornet is back, and Dynamite is the new home for the avenging hero and his faithful sidekick, Kato (and, their ride, Black Beauty, ‘natch)! Issue #2 continues the incredible opening blast from Dynamite and Kevin Smith: the original Green Hornet struggles with forces put in motion against him while his son unwittingly becomes a pawn in a world not of his making! Never before seen, this comic adaptation of the unproduced Kevin Smith screenplay is THE comic book event of 2010 (and beyond!)

Say what you want, but Kevin Smith writes a darn good comic book. This book will run you $3.99 for 32 pages of pure fun. For a more in depth look at this series, check out  G-Man's review of issue one. 
 
Issue two and all it's covers, including this one, should hit stores the beginning of next month.

It's nice that they could make a comic out of it, or pull it out of somewhere.
 
Will it last for more than a week while the movie's out.

I don't think this has the steam to last.

Pretty sure that's Segovia, not Silvestri.

@sora_thekey: they just seem to be knives , not claws or anything

Hell even I would do her.

@inferiorego: LOL I am sure it helps that the dress/trench coat is riding up her backside :)
 
@.Mistress Redhead.: From your comment you probably got a ton of new follows in the last hour :)
 
Back on topic, this cover does look good. At first I thought maybe it was a cover to one of the Kato books, since GH isn't on it. But you know what if this is what they got on the shelf for issue 2 I'll pick it up I am really looking forward to see how this story moves forward. I was ecstatic to see GH back in comic form and I'll continue to purchase.
