  • "David Liss Brings Back The Green Hornet...

    ...With Kewbaar Baal In Reign of The Demon In December."

    (Click for preview art)

    Novelist and comics writer David Liss writes his first Green Hornet story with KISS artist Kewber Baal in The Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon, out in December from Dynamite.

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it could be the deadliest for The Green Hornet and Kato. With their vigilantism tearing apart organized crime, Chicago is visited by two more masked individuals: one claiming to be a friend and the other… their most formidable foe yet!

    David Liss tells us,

    “Dynamite is producing amazing stories with some of the most incredible and iconic characters out there. I’ve loved working with major pulp icons likeThe Spider and The Shadow, so it’s a thrill to finally get a crack at The Green Hornet. Most of my previous work at Dynamite has involved bringing pulp characters into the modern era, so it’s especially exciting for me to write a story with one of these characters in a historical setting. This project was particularly fun because it allowed me to build on Mark Waid’s amazing Green Hornet run and take advantage of the genuinely interesting work he did with the core characters. We’ve also cranked up the pulp elements in this story, producing something that’s fun, intense, and maybe a little deranged.”

    The Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon with covers by Ken Lashley and Anthony Marquesis out on December 7th.

    I liked Liss' run on Black Panther over at Marvel, as well as Mystery Men, so I'll be looking forward to a 20th century era Green Hornet story from him.

            Read it and it wasn't bad.
            Seemed like issue #1 was more of a continuation/resolution to what Waid had done in his previous 13-issue run plus setting the table for this new story. Have to see where things go with the second issue (and "Swashbuckler").

              Read #1, haven't got #2 yet (which shipped last Wednesday, 1-11). The first one was okay, but nothing special. It's nice that it picks up where Waid's Green Hornet off, I guess.
