Kevin Smith's Green Hornet, Volume 2: Wearing o' the Green based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The first edition of Kevin Smith's limited series rebooting “The Green Hornet” only did a fair job of catching and keeping my attention. BUT it did it well enough to convince me to pick up and read the second edition (of 2). And … my general impression of the 2nd book was pretty much the same as the first. Nice art, helps tell the story. Lots of action sequences, perhaps even too much at the expense of character development. A fair tale, based in large part on stories you've probably read before. (Father dies, son vows revenge. Older man fills father-figure role to teach son the ways of crime-fighting) Yes, there are a few modifications and differences to this theme, such as the fact that sensei has his OWN child, whom he has also trained. (There is a surprise or two here, however – but no spoilers from me.) And toss in the fact that the father's foe has a son looking for revenge – it's not really of a spoiler since this fact was telegraphed from the characters' first appearance! Add in a nod to those 1950s Batman comics featuring the enlarged machinery, and you have … what amounts to an average comic. Not bad, not great. Worth reading, but no one's life will have a gap if they never get around to reading this series. Rating: 3 1/2 stars, rounded down to 3 stars where 1/2 stars are not permitted.
