In 2009, Dyanmite Entertainment will begin a series of comic books centered around the Green Hornet, the underground crime fighter born in old-time radio in 1936. Issue number nine matched the Hornet against the legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. A nice irony, that, because it was long assumed that Hoover himself prompted a change in The Green Hornet‘s radio introduction.
