Book Review: The Green Hornet Still At Large! part 3

The Green Hornet Still At Large! Edited by Joe Gentile, Win Scott Eckert and Matthew, Baugh, part 3

Axford’s Sting

Axford’s latest cunning plan to catch the Green Hornet centres on Axford claiming he knows who the feared crime lord really is. Which leads to Axford and the Green Hornet getting into peril. Axford acts out of character and still fails to notice that the Green Hornet is Britt Reid. This was good.

Best Line:
“I haven’t avoided the law this long by luck alone.”

Revenge of the Yellowjacket
Britt’s psycho ex Laura is back for the 3rd time, she intends to reveal the Hornet’s identity. This was good.

Best Line:
“He was wanted for enough crimes he had not committed to bury him.”

The Man In The Picture
The Daily Sentinel’s photographer catches an attempted murder on film. Okay.

Two crime lords plot to get the Hornet. This was good.

Best Line:
“The Green Hornet was an enigma to the criminal element of Detroit. His methods simply did not make sense to any of them.”

Bad Man’s Blunder
Two punks threaten to disrupt a memorial service, the Green Hornet and Kato foil their not so cunning plan. This was good.

Best Lines:
“Is these any crime that happens in this city you don’t feel the Hornet has a hand in?”
“Not many, no.”

Losers, Weepers
The horrid little man Scanlon faces down a crazy employee. This was very good.

A radical plans a bombing campaign. He must be foiled. This was very good.

Best Lines:
“You, meanwhile, are merely a common hoodlum with a stupid mask. Why everyone is so frightened of you I’ll never know. Have you any idea how ridiculous you look?”

“I don’t want money. I inherited gobs of it when I blew up my parents’ house with mom and dad still inside.”

The Night I Met The Hornet
A young boy has an encounter with the Hornet. This was very good.

Best Line:
“People whispered about him, and even then they weren’t too loud about it.”

The infamous Pony Room is the scene of a shooting. It is now the 1970s and Britt Reid has plans to make some changes in his life. This was good.
