Dynamite Entertainment announces The Green Hornet: Parallel Lives, an official comic book prequel inspired by the January 14, 2011 release of Sony Pictures' action film The Green Hornet, starring Seth Rogen. The first and second issues are now on sale at comic book stores everywhere. How do one man's actions affect another man's - either purposely or inadvertently? Or is it just destiny? In this lead-up and origin series, audiences learn how Britt Reid's actions lead to Kato coming in contact with the Reid family and the pair eventually becoming The Green Hornet and Kato. The comic book features a cover by Paul Renaud (pictured above).
"The Green Hornet: Parallel Lives is my take on the characters from the movie," says writer Jai Nitz. "Reading the screenplay is one thing, but then being able to imagine Seth Rogen and Jay Chou in my story is a real treat. The tales I tell in Parallel Lives sprung up while I was reading the script. I had several 'wouldn't it be great if...' moments and those turned into the seeds of The Green Hornet: Parallel Lives. Also, like the movie, I tried to defy expectations at every turn. I tried to throw every cliché out the window to make room for awesome stories that add to the movie lore."
The Green Hornet is directed by Michel Gondry, written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, based upon "The Green Hornet" radio series created by George W. Trendle, and produced by Neal H. Moritz. The film will be released on January 14, 2011 in 3D.
