Bruce Lee is lookin’ good.
Kevin Smith has adapted his Green Hornet screenplay into a ten-issue comic series illustrated mostly by Jonathan Lau. The whole series is reportedly written already. Smith said back in May “this is about as close as I’ll get to making that Green Hornet flick I walked away from directing all those years ago.” Slashfilm reports:
The only plot details Smith shared are that this “story covers the passing of the torch from Britt Reid to his son Britt Jr” and that “another creative team will do a series that covers the ‘golden age’, aka the Green Hornet and Kato most folks are familiar with”. Okay – does that explain why Smith’s Kato is a lady? [...] I suspect this is Mishi Kato, in fact, a character who has appeared in previous Hornet comics but that I’ve never come across personally myself.
Below are four alternate covers for the upcoming first issue with artwork done by John Cassaday, J. Scott Campbell, Alex Ross and Stephen Segovia. I guess I’ll get these, if Kevin reads them to me while I lay on my couch and hold my hands out in front of me to make a square. I’ve also heard hornets are the fiercest killers in the animal kingdom.
