Synopsis: Kato orders the Hornet team to Hong Kong where they’ll need to break into the ultra-secure National Bank of China in order to find the answers they need. But will they be able to pull off this daring heist without attracting the attention of the public’s new favorite hero, the Oko?
Review: Amy Chu’s run on Green Hornet continues and she totally ups the stakes in this issue as she has our heroes plan out a heist with a little assistance from the original Kato and his nephew Clutch.
Clutch who is Mulan’s cousin and part of Kato’s very broad family tree, which crisscrosses several continents happens to be a genius when it comes to creating gadgets and the like and he gets to show us a little of what he can do in this issue.
In order to get some information to shut down the international crime organization Espada. Reed and Mulan have to execute a bank job, but in doing so avoid attracting attention to themselves. Armed with upgraded technology and what could be thought of as a near perfect plan. The two hit some trouble.
The build-up to this heist is nicely written by Chu who does a great job of introducing Clutch and various new characters into the fray without them taking over to much.
The artwork from German Erramouspe continues to impress and some of the panels he does for the actual bank heist really stand out and provide us with some really exciting visuals.
Overall. This was another great issue, which leaves us with the mother of all cliffhangers and feels very much in keeping with the style and fast pace of the 1960’s television series, which it is succeeding.
I loved the introduction of Clutch as well as the little insight into the rather confusing family Tree that Kato has.
