by  in Comic Previews Comment

He Hunts The Biggest Of All Game!
CHICAGO, 1938-a city caught in a vice of corruption and greed, ruled from behind the scenes by “Skid” Caruso, a brutal mob boss whose influence runs all the way to City Hall. But an unexpected threat has arisen to challenge the criminal establishment, a masked rogue known only as…THE GREEN HORNET. With his mysterious comrade at his side, this daring knave strikes again and again, disrupting Caruso’s illicit operations at every turn-seemingly seeking to take over the city’s rackets for himself. In reality, the Green Hornet is the alter-ego of newspaper scion Britt Reid who, with his faithful companion Kato, delivers the sting of justice from outside the law. In this continuation of Eisner Award-winning writer Matt Wagner’s origin of this classic character, for the first time ever, the full scope of this timeless hero’s initial adventures are revealed-the source of his weapons, his hideout and his fantastic car, the Black Beauty. Learn how the Green Hornet brings his clandestine quest for justice to the crime-ridden Chicago streets, a mission that may cost him his life! Ride with the Green Hornet and Kato as they hunt…THE BIGGEST OF ALL GAME!
