    AFAIR, he went with a uncle/nephew connection between the different Green Hornets, not father/son. This ties in with the fact that the 1940's Green Hornet was the nephew of the Lone Ranger. But its been a long time since I read them, and may be wrong. I think he discussions this on the site (or in his forums there).
    Now that you mention it, the nephew relationship sounds correct.
    Maybe it was Britt's daughter who was in the D.A.'s office then?

    By the way, among the titles Dynamite has solicited for release this month (December 2012):

    * GREEN HORNET #35 - (W) Jai Nitz (A) Jethro Morales (CA) Stephen Sadowski
    There’s only enough room for one Green Hornet and Kato in Century City! One Green Hornet is back from the dead, the other is loathe to let go of his mantle. The legacy of the emerald insect looms large over this battle to the death. Did we mention a dirty bomb is poised to go off and the city hangs in the balance?

    * GREEN HORNET YEAR ONE SPECIAL #1 - (W) Nathan Cosby (A) Ariel Padilla (CA) Sean Chen
    Ruby’s thirteen. She sells newspapers for pennies. And she’s got The Green Hornet’s gun. Will Hornet and Kato find Ruby before the mob does…or can THE GREEN GUN GIRL save herself? The original Green Hornet in a super special tale from writer Nate Cosby (Cow Boy)!

    * MASKS #2 - (W) Chris Roberson (A) Dennis Calero (CA) Alex Ross & Various
    Powerful criminals and crooked politicians have taken over New York, and instituted a fascist police state. With the law bent to their own purposes, the so-called “Justice Party” and their army of Black Legion troopers imprison, extort, and execute any citizens who stand in their way. Only vigilantes like the Shadow, Green Hornet, and the Spider have any hope of standing against them, but instead of operating outside the law as they have always done, these masked heroes must now oppose the law in their fight for justice. But they will not be fighting alone, as more men and women don masks and emerge from the shadows to stand alongside them.

    * SHADOW #9 - (W) Victor Gischler (A) Aaron Campbell (CA) Alex Ross & Various
    Revolutionary Part 2 (of 4) – The Shadow finds himself face to face with George Orwell smack dab in the middle of the Spanish Civil War, but his mystic powers fail to illuminate what significance this literary legend holds for the world. No time to figure that out! The Shadow’s campaign against a murderous gang of gun runners takes him on a tour of Barcelona’s underbelly where he meets the beautiful and dangerous Black Sparrow! But is he really an old friend in disguise? Pause to ponder that and you might miss the deadly dogfight over the Spanish countryside. Pack a parachute, Shadow, because you’re going to need it!

    * SHADOW SPECIAL #1 - (W) Scott Beatty (A) Ronan Cliquet (CA) Alex Ross
    The Shadow knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men. But when Lamont Cranston crosses paths with an old friend–a fellow veteran of “the war to end all wars”–Cranston’s justice serving alter ego must judge a man whose path to villainy began with their friendship! At the risk of his own secrets being laid bare, Cranston accepts an invitation to join a very exclusive club of adventurers whose dark hearts might be the worst The Shadow has ever encountered!

    * THE SPIDER #7 - (W) David Liss (A) Colton Worley (CA) John Cassaday, Francesco Francavilla
    Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick lies dead. His wife grieves, and a twisted killer stalks the city. The Spider has inadvertently set into motion the chain of events that leads to his friend’s death, and now he’s out for bloody vengeance – Spider style! But will Richard Wentworth be able to resist the grieving window when she’s the woman he loves? It’s a game-changing issue of the neo-pulp sensation.

    Best way to keep up on upcoming pulp-related works, including comics, is to read Pulp Coming Attractions: http://www.pulpcomingattractions.com/

    Is the Green Hornet Year One (The new one) the Masks Green Hornet or the modern day one? Also, any info on when Waid is starting the new GH?

    The Year One Green Hornet and the current Green Hornet are two different Green Hornet's, but the Year One Hornet and the Masks Green Hornet are one in the same (Britt Reid sr.). The Green Hornet currently being published monthly by Dynamite is the originals son, Britt Reid jr.

    Hmm thanks. I was wondering if there have been any interviews for Waid's GH. I am debating if I should get Year One or wait and see if Waid does his own Year One type story, because I have more faith in Waid than a writer I barely know about.

    Edit: *To the post below me* Thanks! There is just so many good comics in these past few years! We are back with a fiery passion!

    Year One was amazing, it was crafted so very well and deserves to be read by those interested in both Dynamite or the Green Hornet character. Pick it up!

    Waid did a CBR interview a while back I think, either that or it was an extended story about his upcoming series, either way it would be worth reading.

    EDIT: Here it is! http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=41801

    Matt Wagner is a good writer . . . if you can find it, his run on DC's/Vertigo's Sandman Mystery Theatre was great. (He'll also be doing Shadow: Year One for Dynamite next year.

    And actually, I found his SMT to be VERY much pulpy.

    Several of the early 'mystery men' where more pulp-like in the earlier days, what with wearing suits and such instead of spandex. Sandman fit this, as did others like the early Crimson Avenger, etc.

    So, for me, the SMT was all about taking the Sandman back to his more pulp-like roots and doing some great original stories, rather then in his later purple/yellow spandex outfit.

    I didn't really care for Sandman Mystery Theater. It was a bit too evident of modern writer writing about an earlier time and highlighting all the bad differences focusing on the brutality and ugliness of the time. Everyone was a product of their time, except for the leads of course... they felt thoroughly modern in outlook and mores and both made to look rather frumpy. And, the early focus on the crimes revolving around sexual crimes. It was all too heavy handed but didn't really have the sense of excitement or undercurrent of sensuality and glamour of the pulps.

    I didn't say it was perfect.

    It seemed in the earlier storylines, that you note, seem to take a bit too much like similar stories like "The Alienist" and the like. Instead of doing regular 1930s crime stories like we wouldn't have seen in the pulps, we had to have sexual crimes/serial killers and the like.

    I'm interested and will check out the videos but I'm pretty much just interested in the Dynamite versions of these characters, it will be interesting to see more of their histories though.
