Hornet, Where is Thy Sting?

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Today is another sad passing of an actor with a comic book crossover.

     At the age of 82, actor Van Williams passed away and we younger boomers and lover of comics remember him as Britt Reid aka The Green Hornet.  His comics were published in the 40s, with even Jack Kirby drawing a few issues.

     He's even had more recent comics published under NOW publishing and the Dynamite Logo.  But I remember the four issues published by Gold Key Comics back in the 60s.  All issues were drawn by a friend of mine, Dan Spiegle.

     So let's remember Van and his television Kato counterpart, Bruce Lee.  They're both up there above the clouds right now right now, getting their Black Beauty super car ready to track down crime.  May they always be successful!

     Take care and adopt a (Green Hornet) comic book today!
