Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet – Vol. 1 & 2

22 08 2011

The Green Hornet comes across as a B-grade Batman (and in some ways it is), but sometimes you just feel like joining the cult and supporting a B-grade character. This series is based on a story written by Kevin Smith many years back, which was supposed to be turned into a movie. Sadly, it never made it to the big screen, and what we got instead was the film starring Seth Rogen. Even if you liked that movie, this comic book is so much better.

The covers by Alex Ross are crazy awesome…

Dude, I completely agree with you. Kevin Smith gave the Green Hornet what it needed! The film Seth Rogen starred in was a complete joke and I always tear up when I think about the fact that Kevin Smith’s script was turned down for the the script that became the film screenplay. I own every issue of Smith’s run and it was a fun ride!

Yea, Kevin Smith’s treatment is far better. Apparently Kevin Smith turned down the opportunity to direct his own script, and they couldn’t find any other director who wanted to do it.

I like the movie, personally. Didn’t expect much and laughed quite a bit. That = ok to me.

Anyways, is this out in TPB yet iPod?

I’d give it a go.

And yeah, Alex Ross is freaking incredible.
