CBR: Moonstone "Chronicles" The Classic Green Hornet
The comics and prose publisher takes a cue from the classic Van Williams/Bruce Lee TV series for their incoming collection of Green Hornet short stories by talents from Harlan Ellison to Denny O'Neil, with a unique crime fiction take.

That's what the name of that-other-guy was! (I can never remember).
I really like how CBR covers there non-mainstream projects. I want to support Moonstone but I don't agree with how they release most of their prose books in softcover for $20 or so and then a hardcover for $50 that has exclusive material that's not in the softcover. For instance, the Green Hornet HC exclusively includes:
*The Ltd Ed HC edition includes bonus material: Harlan Ellison’s “liner notes” on his Green Hornet-Phantom team up story, and also the only-played-once origin of the Green Hornet radio episode is turned into a thrilling prose story by Anthony Tollin!
The above amounts to 18 extra pages.
It just seems to me like that is raping the true fan by forcing them to buy an (in my opinion) overpriced HC to get all the material. Sell the hardcovers more expensively sure but don't penalize the true fans who aren't able to to pay more than DOUBLE the price for the hardcover.
I wouldn't consider the failed television series as the "classic" Green Hornet. Cult favorite, maybe. Classic would be the radio series that lasted over a decade.
