Book Description

The war between The Black Hornet and The Green Hornet reaches its shattering climax in this second volume of Kevin Smith's daring reimagining of the classic character. As The Green Hornet and Kato pursue his father's killer, The Black Hornet reveals a plan that could spell doom for the world itself. Played out on the streets of Century City, a deadly struggle between Hornets threatens to destroy not only our heroes, but the legacy they hoped to restore. It's high octane action, drama, and humor, as only famed filmmaker Kevin Smith could provide. Collecting issues #6-10 of the series based on Kevin Smith's unproduced Green Hornet film, this volume also features a complete cover gallery by industry greats Alex Ross, John Cassaday and Greg Horn.

4.0 out of 5 stars I found it more enjoyable than the first volume 18 May 2014
By Squirr-el TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The story running through issues #6-10 of Dynamite Comics' new Green Hornet series is collected as Kevin Smiths Green Hornet Volume 2: Wearing o the Green TP. This is the continuation and completion of the story begun in Kevin Smiths Green Hornet TP Vol 01: Sins of the Father. This opening story is based on an unused film script written by Kevin Smith some years before the recent film was finally made. There are a few similarities to the film, but the two have got far more differences, and tell their own stories. The artwork is good, as is the scripting, but it is going to be down to personal inclination as to how good, and whether you are interested in the adventures of a new Green Hornet and Kato, or would prefer the old ones.

THE SPOILER ZONE
In this half of the story, the new team of Green Hornet and Kato begin their reign of terror against the gangs of the city, work through a number of Green Hornet costumes, before settling on the `classic' one, and discover the Black Hornet's identity, and that he is going to steal a new stealth bomber being developed in a building in the middle of Century City, and use it do drop its nuclear bomb on said city as a demonstration of its effectiveness to potential buyers. And he leaves the Hornet and Kato tied to the giant working typewriter situated on top of Britt Reid's newspaper building so they can have a front-row view.

3.0 out of 5 stars The sting in the tale 19 Aug. 2011
By Sam Quixote TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Smith continues his Green Hornet story in this second and final part of his screenplay-turned-comic-book series. When we left off the new Green Hornet and Kato had accepted their roles and place within Century City and had begun their takedown of the bad guys, including the newest villain, the Black Hornet.

This book feels a lot more like a movie than a comic book. For instance there's the montage of scenes where Britt Reid Jnr tries on a series of new Hornet costumes interspersed with him beating up hoods and receiving fighting lessons from the two Katos, finally concluding to stick with the classic look and matching Kato toe to toe in a fight after being beaten the first time.

Then the action heats up quickly. Black Hornet and his alter ego are out for the destruction of the Reid dynasty and Century City while developing a nuclear stealth bomber with the intention of "getting revenge for Nagasaki and Hiroshima". This is one of many references Smith feels would be in a Japanese person's psyche, and has Reid repeatedly call the new Kato "dragon lady" and wonders how the new Clutch could be related to Kato as he's a "round eye". Yeah, as a half-Japanese myself (and a "round-eye") I found these tedious references a bit insulting and dumb, but I guess that's what you get with Kevin Smith sometimes.

There's also a cheesy setup where Green Hornet and Kato are tied up at the top of the Sentinel's building which has a giant working typewriter (yeah, really) and they face death by key stroke. Ridiculous to see, I'm not sure it would've worked on the big screen as it's just too much of a throwback. I mean why build a typewriter on a roof? And why have the villain tie them up and leave before seeing them killed?

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS GREEN HORNET! 14 Sept. 2011
By Kryptonman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Forget about Seth Rogans take on the Green Hornet. This book volume 1 and 2 were written by Kevin Smith for Disney in hopes of revitalizing the GH myth. This is what the movie should have been. The story flowed as if I were actually watching a movie. Fast paced quick witted, I hope and pray that this version of the Green Hornet is one day a film....and Seth Rogan never NEVER! tries to ruin a character with so much potential ever again. This book is all that a bag of chips and the drink and is not to be missed out on. Enjoy this little peace of fan-boy heaven.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great until the last 4 pages. Now only good. 28 May 2012

The Green Hornet was great until the last 4 pages. The author should not have jumped the rails just to make Kato a token alternative character.
