4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 19, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Smith continues his Green Hornet story in this second and final part of his screenplay-turned-comic-book series. When we left off the new Green Hornet and Kato had accepted their roles and place within Century City and had begun their takedown of the bad guys, including the newest villain, the Black Hornet.

This book feels a lot more like a movie than a comic book. For instance there's the montage of scenes where Britt Reid Jnr tries on a series of new Hornet costumes interspersed with him beating up hoods and receiving fighting lessons from the two Katos, finally concluding to stick with the classic look and matching Kato toe to toe in a fight after being beaten the first time.

Then the action heats up quickly. Black Hornet and his alter ego are out for the destruction of the Reid dynasty and Century City while developing a nuclear stealth bomber with the intention of "getting revenge for Nagasaki and Hiroshima". This is one of many references Smith feels would be in a Japanese person's psyche, and has Reid repeatedly call the new Kato "dragon lady" and wonders how the new Clutch could be related to Kato as he's a "round eye". Yeah, as a half-Japanese myself (and a "round-eye") I found these tedious references a bit insulting and dumb, but I guess that's what you get with Kevin Smith sometimes.

There's also a cheesy setup where Green Hornet and Kato are tied up at the top of the Sentinel's building which has a giant working typewriter (yeah, really) and they face death by key stroke. Ridiculous to see, I'm not sure it would've worked on the big screen as it's just too much of a throwback. I mean why build a typewriter on a roof? And why have the villain tie them up and leave before seeing them killed?
