A lighthearted weekend reading review…because sometimes Pastors need a break from heavy reading also.

If you love super heroes from the pulp era of the 1930-50s you would love this work!  In this comic book we see nine different pulp superheroes such as the Green Hornet with his sidekick Kato, Zorro, the Black Bat and the Shadow joining forces in one story to fight against a political enemy known as the Justice Party.  And what a treat it was to read this graphic novel and see these characters coming together and fighting against evil!

This is another Green Hornet comic book volume that I enjoyed.  I liked that this one is “old school” in that it is situated in the past rather than the present.  Putting the Green Hornet in our contemporary era seems to take away something from the story and I was disappointed when other Green Hornet graphic novels did that.  So I’m glad that one of the latest Green Hornet from Dynamite Entertainment retain the 1930s-40s era of the Green Hornet.  Note: If you don’t want to read any spoiler skip the next paragraph and read what follows after that.

Another Weekend Light reading review.

Jai Nitz.  Kato Origins: Way of the Ninja.  Runnemede, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment, December 7th 2010.  140 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

The character Kato is the sidekick of the Green Hornet and while the title of this graphic novel is Kato Origins: Way of the Ninja it really is not an origin story per se but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the story.  While it did not cover Kato’s origin in the traditional sense of how most comics would approach it, this work though was definitely a story about the identity and identity crisis of Kato, among other things.

A light weekend reading review.

Michael Uslan.  The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights.  Runnemede, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment, March 18th, 2014.  128 pp.

I discovered from reading comics on the Green Hornet that I like stories with historical references (of course the main character is fictional).  I read the writer’s work on the Green Hornet and the Lone Ranger and I enjoyed the historical references and even actual historical characters plus the great storyline so much that I looked up more works by Michael Uslan.  So I picked up The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights and found that the same thing I liked in my previous reading can also be found in this graphic novel.

A few months ago I read for the first time two comic books on the character “Green Hornet” that left me hooked so when I saw this story of Green Hornet and the Lone Ranger I felt compelled to read it right away.  I did not regret it.  Actually that is an understatement.  I enjoyed this work immensely.

This is a review of two volumes of a Comic hero as a break from serious and deep reading.

Matt Wagner.  Green Hornet: Year One Vol 1: The Sting of Justice.  Runnemede, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment, November 16th, 2010.  140 pp.

This is the first comic book I read on the character “Green Hornet” and it has left me hooked!  This tells the story of the origin of the Green Hornet and his sidekick Kato.  Set in the early 1920s and 1930s the illustration and the colors definitely enhanced the experience of reading this work.  But it was the story telling that I most appreciate from the book.
