He Hunts The Biggest Of All Game!
CHICAGO, 1938—a city caught in a vice of corruption and greed, ruled from behind the scenes by “Skid” Caruso, a brutal mob boss whose influence runs all the way to City Hall. But an unexpected threat has arisen to challenge the criminal establishment, a masked rogue known only as…THE GREEN HORNET. With his mysterious comrade at his side, this daring knave strikes again and again, disrupting Caruso’s illicit operations at every turn—seemingly seeking to take over the city’s rackets for himself. In reality, the Green Hornet is the alter-ego of newspaper scion Britt Reid who, with his faithful companion Kato, delivers the sting of justice from outside the law. In this continuation of Eisner Award-winning writer Matt Wagner’s origin of this classic character, for the first time ever, the full scope of this timeless hero’s initial adventures are revealed—the source of his weapons, his hideout and his fantastic car, the Black Beauty. Learn how the Green Hornet brings his clandestine quest for justice to the crime-ridden Chicago streets, a mission that may cost him his life! Ride with the Green Hornet and Kato as they hunt…THE BIGGEST OF ALL GAME!
