Green Hornet #28 debuts a brand new creative team for the title. I don’t expect them to prove themselves their first time out, but I have to admit, they made a pretty good showing in their first issue on this title.
Writer Jai Nitz is all over the place…but, that’s a good thing. There’s PLENTY of action and mystery going on during the issue, as well as some nice comedic touches. There’s a lot of set up here, which is to be expected, and I think the grand scheme that he’s got planned is going to take awhile to roll out, which is fine as long as he keeps up the pacing that he’s got going this issue. If not, I’m afraid it could drag. BUT, I saw more bad than good here, and I see a lot of potential for Nitz’s writing.
Jethro Morales is the new artist on the title, and I can only ask – Where have they been hiding him? He’s great!!!! He’s got a great look for the series, his anatomy is fantastic, and his page layouts are really a lot of fun. He’s got some real talents when it comes to drawing facial expressions, and when it’s time to draw the super heroics, he’s no slouch in that department either.
A perfect jumping-on point for new readers, and a great comic in general! I’m really looking forward to seeing what this creative team has in store for fans of this comic, I’m betting it’s going to be a blast!
