Kevin Smith Commits To Making New Batman And Green Hornet Comics

If your a Kevin Smith fan or a fan of Batman and the Green Hornet this is great news!
When asked about what he's got up his sleeve for a new Batman comic book Smith states "The Widening Gyre is a 12-issue Batman mini-series split into two volumes, with a half year break between each. Issues one through six (Book I) will ship monthly. Then, the story goes on hold for six months. Then, issues seven through 12 (Book II) will once again ship monthly. Yes, I built in the break to insure we don't run into my usual problems with lateness. But I'm trying to improve, folks: first six scripts and first issue's art -- by Cacophony artist Walt Flanagan -- were already done before we took this public. But here's the kicker: three weeks after the last issue of The Widening Gyre, we'll launch a solo series featuring the new character, which I'll be writing bi-monthly."

On the Green Hornet Smith states "Dynamite honcho Nick Barrucci hit me with an email, saying he'd locked up the license [for masked crimefighter Brit Reid and his nimble sidekick, Kato], and asking if I wanted to write an arc," says Smith. "But had to decline because I was in the middle of the Batman scripts. But then I thought 'I already wrote a Hornet story once...' It's the Hornet movie I'd make if I was making it today. And there's no better time to do that than before Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry's version defines the character for the mainstream. We haven't picked an interior artist yet, but we've got some stellar cover talent on board already: Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Jae Lee, and David Finch."

I like Kevin Smith's movies(Silent Bob rules)they are funny and most of them have a good point. I am really looking forward to these books coming out, Smith has a vast amount of knowledge regarding Comic Lore. It will be nice to see that talent put to good work.
