Even though it features two more masked heroes, this is another example of my non-comics work. I’m a huge Green Hornet fan, from the original radio show to the 1960s TV series and beyond. I even found a lot to enjoy in the recent Green Hornet movie, even though it was far from my ideal of a Green Hornet film. Have you seen this short Green Hornet fan film? It’s badass!
Anyway, I’ve had a couple of near-misses with getting to draw Green Hornet comic book properties, and hopefully some day that will yet come together. But in the mean time, there’s no reason I couldn’t go ahead and draw the character. This is the TV version of the Green Hornet, featuring Van Williams as the Hornet and the legendary Bruce Lee in his star-making role as Kato. The Hornet is depicted with his trusty gas gun, while Kato is shown taking out a pack of thugs bare handed. And of course no tribute to the Green Hornet would be complete without the Hornet’s rolling arsenal: The Black Beauty!
This was a lot of fun to do, and I’d still love to draw a Green Hornet adventure one day!
