In 2013, The Green Hornet is going in a new direction as writer Mark Waid (Daredevil) will be relaunching the title over at Dynamite Entertainment, according to Newsarama. Along with cover artist Paolo Rivera, Waid’s new book will be titled Green Hornet and Kato. No interior artist has been announced as of yet.

"It should come as little surprise that I have an affinity for all costumed crimefighters no matter if their adventures are 'period pieces' or not--heroism is heroism regardless of whatever year's on the calendar," said writer Mark Waid in a press release. "With this Green Hornet project, which I've been percolating on for more than ten years, I'm able to meld my love of the Hornet's legacy with a little bit of Citizen Kane and a lot of Lawrence of Arabia to tell a story never before told--the dark years of the Hornet's later career and the one mistake he makes that nearly costs him everything."

We’ll have more on Green Hornet and Kato as information becomes available. For now, check out a promotional image from the series below:
