Batman and The Green Hornet



My first memories of The Green Hornet were from listening to his classic radio adventures. I especially loved that Britt Reid was the son of Dan Reid, who was The Lone Ranger's nephew. Very cool bit of shared universes there.

The Green Hornet is due for a big budget film adaptation, Headed by Seth Rogen. The trailer seems to lean heavily on the comedic side, but hopefully the humor won't be too much at the expense of the characters. I must say Kato looks pretty impressive from what I have seen.

I liked the thought of this. But, the graphics don;t mesh as well as some or most of the others.Most likely due to the periods they were done in. If the Green Hornets artwork was a little more crisp or Batman's were a little less crisp. It would have been a better blend. You've done some great work so far. Can't wait to see more.

Yeah, the poses work but it's tough to mesh a painting with traditional line art.

Jack, check the archives, Galactus and Power Pack have already been posted. Your other suggestions are fun but don't hold your breath waiting for a Twilight cover!

I've always loved that Steranko GH painting. I remember seeing it (the original) at a Philly comiccon in about 1990.
