Following the successful launch of Kevin Smith's Green Hornet, Dynamite Entertainment is releasing Green Hornet: Year One #1 a full 3 weeks early! The very first days of the original Green Hornet and his faithful sidekick Kato begin under the masterful hand of writer Matt Wagner and artist Aaron Campbell! Follow Green Hornet and Kato as they move into the pages of history and form the ultimate crime-fighting duo!
With a renewed interest in Green Hornet due to Kevin Smith's comic book and the upcoming major motion picture starring Seth Rogen, now is the time to read our Green Hornet comic books! Green Hornet: Year One features the writing of Matt Wagner, bringing the characters to their basic roots a la All-Star Superman! Rooted in the pulp tradition, the original tales of Britt Reid and Kato begin here! Joining Wagner is artist Aaron Campbell (Sherlock Holmes), whose stunning recreation of the industrial world of 1930's Chicago is sure to wow fans across the globe! Witness the origin of the original Green Hornet in Green Hornet: Year One #1!
"THE GREEN HORNET stands as one of the prototypes of the modern super-hero...and yet, surprisingly, the original version of the character featured no distinct origin tale," says writer Matt Wagner. "In GREEN HORNET; YEAR ONE, we're filling in the holes so that new and old readers alike can finally see and understand what makes this character such a long-lasting and vital part of American pop culture!"
"At long last the Green Hornet and Kato return, not only to their gritty roots, but in a way that has been lacking since their debut over 70 years ago," adds artist Aaron Campbell. "Matt Wagner's take on this iconic duo is sure to set the gold standard for years to come."
"Matt is the perfect writer to pen this tale. And after seeing Aaron's art on Sherlock Holmes, he stood out as the artist that would bring the right feel to this series. Dynamite is proud to have Matt and Aaron be the team behind this special series. They are integral to it!" stated Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci.
