CBR Review: Green Hornet #3

I recently reviewed Green Hornet #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "While Lau overdraws the book, that goes well with Kevin Smith’s overwriting in the form of overwrought, painful narrative captions that are too over-the-top. In the build-up to the death of Britt Reid, the original Green Hornet, Smith piles captions upon captions on the page to somehow give this event more meaning, but it makes the death almost comical. He writes of how Reid came home each night after fighting crime as the Green Hornet because of his wife, which is a nice sentiment, but the Green Hornet most people know was single, so it lacks the punch Smith is going for."
