Green Hornet “Sins Of the Father” is based on an unused movie script penned by Kevin Smith for Miramax.  It tells the story of the Original Green Hornet and Kato and how after going into retirement the Green Hornet mantle is begrudgingly taken over by his son to avenge his father. It is an entertaining action romp with lots of fighting  and chase scenes and I enjoyed it. I don’t think it is as edgy as Kevin Smiths’s stint on Daredevil but I have a feeling future novels will throw in some surprises.  The artwork is great and the coloring a real pleasure to look at . This book was my introduction to the Green Hornet so I had no pre-conceived ideas of what to expect but I will definitely be checking out the next novel.  Special mention must go to the amazing Alex Ross covers in the bonus section.[ISBN-13: 978-1606901427]. 7/10
