Your favorite smooth talking, sure-fisted, mustachioed adventurer is back for a dimension-bending adventure that turns up the heat like never before. ALBERT EINSTEIN has his sights set on ancient Egypt (where it’s really toasty), and he’ll need the Queen of the Nile herself, CLEOPATRA, to help him trap a thief that’s wreaking havoc on our timeline. But as Einstein discovers, this bandit is just a pawn in a dark scheme that will unravel history!

ALBERT EINSTEIN: TIME MASON #5

Review: Green Hornet: Generations

As a fan of subversive comedy, I tend to gravitate to parodies more than any other subgenre. They best tend to tell the truth without the consumer knowing. One of the most memorable stories that come to mind, is Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. This told a typical superhero story but through the supposed villain’s eyes.

These typical stories told through a point of view of a character who is not normally the protagonist, gives the reader more than a new perspective, but much like Howard Zinn’s books, normally gives its audience, the complete picture. This is why characters like Robin can be even more interesting than Batman depending on which Robin you are talking about. Each iteration has their own layers of issues each carries whether you are talking Damian Wayne or Dick Grayson. They each possess their own history. The reason these sidekicks follow the hero rarely is even questioned, but really should be. In Green Hornet: Generations, we find a one-time sidekick now protecting a city under siege.

We find Kato giving readers a quick introduction to who the Green Hornet is and why him and Britt Reid did what they did, until Britt died.  Now we find that his son taking over the mantle until he disappears, something that has gotten unwanted attention from criminals and forces Kato and his daughter, Mulan, to spring into action. As Kato realizes Mulan must take the mantle if they want to protect the city and find Britt Jr. Soon Mulan uses her resources as a reporter along with her friend, Tai, to follow the clues to where Britt Jr. may be, which leads them to Istanbul, where they may be closer to the truth, including the sudden appearance of a new hero, Oko, with their own agenda, one that proves to be dubious. This si where she finds Britt Jr., who refuses to take his father’s mantle back, and uncovers a secret society pulling the strings behind every major move in the world while Mulan deals with the fact that the Green Horne is blamed for a horrific tragedy. The team takes their collective talents to Hong Kong where they pull off a heist to break into a bank, which holds the secrets they have been looking for. By book’s end, we find out the enemy was closer than anyone ever thought, while trouble diverted on both ends, as Britt Jr. stops a company takeover and the team reemerges from all this chaos, mostly unscathed.

Overall, the collection is a gripping story that both reinvigorates the franchise and introduces new characters that carry on the mythology. The story by Amy Chu is action packed, entertaining, and intricate. The art by German Erramouspe is lavish and beautiful. Altogether, it’s a story that feels fresh, upends character tropes, and pulls readers into the world of Century City and the Green Hornet.

Meanwhile, crime spikes in the streets of Century City with the mysterious criminal/secret vigilante the Green Hornet absent. It’s only a matter of time before SOMEONE puts two and two together, and it’s up to Kato, former partner of Britt’s father, and his daughter Mulan to protect the city AND the Green Hornet legacy, while finding out what happened to Britt. Amy Chu (Red Sonja, Poison Ivy, KISS) picks up where Kevin Smith left off with an action-packed mystery.

When it comes to secrets and spies, who can you trust? No, seriously. We’re asking you. The Angels need to know. They are after a KGB agent in possession of American nuclear information and things are not what they seem. It looks like they will have to use their brains and karate action to get themselves out of this one!
