Green Hornet #4

With the city within his grasp Britt Reid's world comes tumbling down. What started last issue with Kato abandoning their partnership and The Sentinel accusing and old family friend of being the terrorist known as "The Voice" continues here as Reid's mayoral campaign goes down in flames before it ever gets started when Kato proves Winston Mills isn't The Voice after all.

Although the issue continues to deal with the ramifications of the Green Hornet's recent actions I'm not sure I want to see Reid sued and broke anymore than I'd want to see that same story with Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark. I trust writer Mark Waid knows where he's going, but things are obviously going to get worse for the character before they get better.

Even if I have issues with where the arc is heading, I'll admit this might be the kind of story that could appeal more to new readers of the the Green Hornet rather than those of us carrying decades of the character's history with us. For fans.
