The Green Hornet is back at Dynamite Entertainment! This December, "Mystery Men" scribe David Liss and "Army of Darkness: Furious Road"
artist Kewber Baal will join forces for "The Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon," a four-issue miniseries.
According to the official series description,
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!
"Dynamite is producing amazing stories with some of the most incredible and iconic characters out there. I've loved working with major pulp icons like 'The Spider' and 'The Shadow,' so it's a thrill to finally get a crack at 'The Green Hornet,'" Liss said in a statement. "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."
"When David's name came up for this project, it was inspired as my first thought was, ‘We haven't had him write Green Hornet before? Can that possibly be?'" Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci added. "Whenever he's worked with us, David's writing establishes the setting and mood perfectly, no matter whether the story's set in modern times or period. Pairing him with Kewber Baal is a perfect way to please fans of both pulp and modern crime comics!"
"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," Liss shared. "We've also cranked up the pulp elements in this story, producing something that's fun, intense, and maybe a little deranged."
Featuring covers by Ken Lashley and Anthony Marques, Liss and Baal's "Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon" #1 goes on sale December 7.
