"It should come as little surprise that I have an affinity for all costumed crimefighters no matter if their adventures are 'period pieces' or not--heroism is heroism regardless of whatever year's on the calendar," says writer Mark Waid. "With this Green Hornet project, which I've been percolating on for more than ten years, I'm able to meld my love of the Hornet's legacy with a little bit of Citizen Kane and a lot of Lawrence of Arabia to tell a story never before told--the dark years of the Hornet's later career and the one mistake he makes that nearly costs him everything."
"Sometimes in life, things happen for a reason. We've wanted to work with Mark nearly since Dynamite's inception. We first approached him about writing a Red Sonja mini-series, but Mark wasn't familiar with the character and passed. Over the years we've approached Mark about various projects, but his schedule did not allow. We've always wanted a strong writer to write the original Green Hornet, as Matt Wagner has done a fantastic job on Green Hornet: Year One. And since Green Hornet: Year One, we hadn't found the right writer for a new series. When Mark's schedule allowed for us to finally work together, I asked which character(s) he would like to write. Right off the bat, he said the Green Hornet. I said "Yes!". It was perfect for everyone. It took awhile, and I'm proud to say we're working with Mark Waid on a Green Hornet series, and it is worth the wait. Sometimes in life, things happen for a reason." - Nick Barrucci, Dynamite Entertainment President
