I never gave a damn about the Green Hornet. Probably my first exposure to character was as a child playing recreational soccer, where every team had its own name “voted on” by the team (and, usually in reality, chosen by the coach and other parents). One year, our team played against another named The Green Hornets; as an eight year old born at the tail end of the 1980s, I didn’t understand the reference, and had it explained by my parents.

That said, I never really pursued the Green Hornet. Even after hearing about his background, I never tracked down the TV series that saw Bruce Lee’s explosion into American media, nor did I even realize that pulp stories starring the character existed. With the advent of the critically panned film a few years back, my interest in the character couldn’t have been more minimal.

And then Bleeding Cool featured the first issue of The Green Hornet by Mark Waid and Daniel Indro for free on the site. And after that, I was hooked.

Hello everyone and welcome to another exciting edition of Silverwolf Suggests! Each month, I select three different comics for a friend that I think she or he will like. The friend then selects one of the three, and, if they like, I’ll purchase it for him or her. Later, we discuss the comic, the results of which are shared here!

This month, I’m joined by Vidasoy as we discuss Runaways, a popular comic series from the early 2000s written by Brian K. Vaughan (Saga) and drawn by Adrian Alphona (Ms. Marvel). We checked out Volume 1: Pride and Joy, which features the introduction of these characters. Check out our thoughts after the jump!

Divinity #1 Cover

Valiant’s latest, and perhaps most anticipated, series arrived in comic shops across the world yesterday. Titled Divinity, this prestige series catalogs the exploits of a Soviet cosmonaut who returns to the world after being lost in space. But his reappearance makes the world tremble, for this man returns with the powers of a deity.

The Valiant Next initiative has so far brought a number of successes, including The Valiant and Ivar, Timewalker. Divinity marks a new stage for Valiant, as this is the first series to be entirely based upon wholly original characters set within the Valiant Universe. Helmed by writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine, fans brought a lot of anticipation leading up to the release of this series.
