Green Hornet #1

Wow, is this awful! Dynamite Entertainment puts out some good titles, but when they miss they miss badly. Kevin Smith takes the opportunity to grab the reigns of this Golden Age crime-fighter and basically give us his watered down version of The Mask of Zorro complete with long monologues, insipid dialogue between spouses, and puns. Bad ones.

I like the character of the Green Hornet, and I am hopeful that Matt Wagner's upcoming "Year One" series might do some justice to the character. But whether it does or not it will almost certainly be better than this. It certainly couldn't be worse.
