Banking on the success of the recently released Kevin Smith Green Hornet comic, we have another one coming your way from Dynamite Entertainment. I really enjoyed the first one, so I'm kind of looking forward to see if this series is a success. The new series will feature a new and very different version of the character, integrating the political climate of today with the legacy of the Green Hornet. The lovely folks at Dynamite gave Comic Vine a look at some art as well as a few teaser images to get you all excited. Check it out!
"The Green Hornet Strikes! features a new version of the character, in a near-future world where the financial crisis we face today didn't resolve neatly," says writer Brett Matthews. "At its core, it explores all the things THE GREEN HORNET has always been about -- corruption. The fine line between hero and criminal. Politics and legacy -- but through the filter of its young protagonist, who is a little less stable and certain of his actions. It's faithful to what's come before but definitely its own thing, like THE LONE RANGER but taking the approach much further. It's a unique book. It had to be, to earn its place in such a solid lineup."
Are you guys looking forward to the new series? The Green Hornet #1 hits store shelves May 26th, 2010. Will you be picking it up?
