Reading Room: THE GREEN HORNET "The Counterplot Affair" Conclusion

Attempting to protect the boy prince of the oil-rich Mid-Eastern country of Bahratta from foreign spies, The Green Hornet and Kato discover the lad's uncle has arranged for the kid to be kidnapped.
Kato shadows the young king-to-be, and during a kidnapping attempt loses the boy, who escapes into the depths of the city's biggest park.
Now costumed and armed, the Hornet and Kato return to the park, only to run into the kidnappers...
Written by Paul S Newman and illustrated by Dan
The other tale from the final issue of the Silver Age Green Hornet's Gold Key run can be found HERE.
While lp albums and cassettes of his radio adventures continued to be released thru the 1970s and '80s, the Hornet and Kato wouldn't return to comics until the 1990s, when NOW Comics revived and revised the character, combining all the different incarnations into one big crime-fighting family!
Tomorrow, on the day of the 2011 Green Hornet film's release on DVD/Blu-Ray, we'll have a couple of rarely-seen Hornet goodies!
