Media Release — In October the adventures of the Green Hornet and Kato continues with not one, but eight new exciting issues!
In Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet #8, the new Green Hornet faces his greatest challenge, as the deadly Black Hornet engages him in a high-octane duel to the death on the streets of Century City. As The Black Hornet strikes at the very heart of the Hornet’s Nest, even the aid of the Kato family may not be enough to keep the legacy of The Green Hornet intact or Britt Reid alive. Only on the verge of their own destruction do Green Hornet and Kato realize that Century City itself faces an equally disastrous fate. Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet #8 is written by the man himself, Mr. Kevin Smith. Teamed up on art duties is his faithful sidekick and partner Jonathan Lau, with covers by Alex Ross, Greg Horn, and Joe Benitez.
