Green Hornet #5

Rather than wallow in the public failure of both himself and his green-clad alter ego caused by The Voice, Britt Reid decides to pick-up the pieces of his shattered ego and begin to fight back. His first step is to find and reconcile with Kato, which, as first steps go, turns out to be harder than he planned.

After the events of last issue where Reid was publicly disgraced by his former partner, his mayoral campaign left in the dust, and the with the real possibility of his newspaper being taken away from him, I had serious concerns about where the comic was heading. Thankfully, writer Mark Waid decides to go in an entirely different direction and by the end of the issue has found a way to put the team of the Green Hornet and Kato back together.

Rather than become a broken man the Hornet becomes one possessed with finding the truth. Although he's been humbled this doesn't mean the man's massive ego has been put in check, as Reid still believes on shadowy streets the Green Hornet is infallible. Worth a look.
