    Default New (female) Green Hornet series from Dynamite slated for March 2018

    Looks like Dynamite will have a female Green Hornet in their next series.

    GREEN HORNET VOL. 2 #1
    Britt Reid Jr., the scion of the Daily Sentinel publishing empire, vanishes during a wild party on his friend's yacht. 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.

    Not sure how long that will last, though. I guess it will depend on what really happened to Britt Reid Jr. and if/when he is found/returns.

    Does the middle cover depicted here mean she can glide or fly? That would be cool. Not sure of the era this story takes place but Green Hornet always had a few gadgets laying around.

    Don't know. Could just be a stylistic drawing of a cape/coat tails blowing in a breeze or something.
    Guess we'll have to wait for more information.

    I might check this out as Ive enjoyed most of Chu's work at Dynamite so far.

    Never did read Kevin Smith's Green Hornet. How was it?

    A little more about Amy Chu and this project . . .

    From a CBR article (dated December 20th):
    “The Green Hornet was one of the top titles on my bucket list to write, so I’m really thrilled to dive in,” Chu said in an official statement. “I’ve been listening to the old radio shows from the ’30s and trying to bring back some of the good guy vs bad guy elements of what made it popular in the ’30s. But this is not a pure nostalgia trip- there’s a lot of modern twists. My parent’s generation in Hong Kong liked Green Hornet because of Bruce Lee as Kato so I’m weaving in some solid martial arts action too.”
    There's also the more recent "Interview: Amy Chu on Dynamite’s Green Hornet" that can be found on the Westfield Comics Blog:

    Smith`s Hornet was good, it was like reading an action flick on the big screen.

    Still looks like issue #1 of this is scheduled for March 7th (at least according to Previewsworld).
