The Green Hornet Celebrates 10 Years at Dynamite with a New Series

The Green Hornet strikes in a slick new series by prolific scribe Scott Lobdell and artistic mogul and teacher Anthony Marques, from Dynamite in June! In time to help commemorate the 10th anniversary of Dynamite’s publishing the iconic character!

Green Hornet, Kato, the Black Beauty and a bounty of gadgets are back in this artistically unique series. Featuring a slimmed-down, tight-knit creative team, fans of the classic pulp hero will be amazed. Writer Scott Lobdell is joined by artist Anthony Marques, who is also handling coloring to create a stylish, minimalist palette of black, white and green. Letterer extraordinaire Taylor Esposito plays the comic book bass with his consistently on-point storytelling. And did we mention there’s a baby? An alien baby?

A show-stopping series like this wouldn’t be complete without some real stunners in the cover art category. Fellow Kubie and maestro Lee Weeks mirrors the interior color scheme. As does Marques with his newspaper inspired piece. Eisner Award-winning cover artist Dave Johnson brings some 60s mod flavor. Mike McKone has the most action-packed of the bunch. A double-breasted coat and smoking Tommy gun are the name of the game with Leonardo Romero. And Walter Geovani closes it out with a limited incentive cover.

Green Hornet #1 is out June 2020.
