Thanks for the heads-up on the auction ! I can't afford it, but was able to save a copy of the little image he had of the painting
And sorry I missed Mark when he was in the East Coast !! Would have loved to discuss a few things with him concerning what they've been doing, what they plan to do, and of course thank him sincerely for making all these Hornet radio shows available recently. There are a couple 'heads up' I'd like to pass along in that direction as well. For the first time a Jack McCarthy Hornet collection (there's an image of him as the Hornet in an earlier post on this thread) is now available to the public; which includes 19 shows that have never been previously made available to the public this way. And the one show that has been out there for some time is in such bad condition that this new version of it should be a vast improvement of it quality-wise I would also think that this set would be the most interesting to fans of the TV show because it seems to be this version of the Hornet that was used to spring-board the '66-'67 TV show concept of him. Anyway, here's some info and a link..
"The final classic radio adventures of The Green Hornet were crafted for their times. In these exciting episodes, The Green Hornet (portrayed by Jack McCarthy) and Kato (Paul Carney) combat communism and communist sympathizers, take down crooked politicians, and smash rackets on the waterfront.
Join the daring young publisher and his faithful valet as they hunt the biggest of all game in the last 20 shows that the radio series ever produced! Digitally remastered and restored, 19 of these programs are presented here for the first time anywhere.
Includes a Program Guide by Martin Grams, Jr. and Terry Salomonson.
Episodes Include: Political Crossfire 10-01-52, Spy Master 10-03-52, The Changing Alibi 10-08-52, Keys to a Robbery 10-10-52, Election Boomerang 10-15-52, Proof of Treason 10-17-52, Jeff Warren's Safe 10-22-52, Unknown Assassin 10-24-52, The Microfilm of Death 10-29-52, The Hawkridge Gems 10-31-52, A Friday Night in the Mountains 11-05-52, The Simple Clue 11-07-52, The Triple-Cross 11-12-52, Ceiling on Crime 11-14-52, The Cigarette Filters 11-19-52, Shipment for Korea 11-21-52, Gas House Ending 11-26-52, Murder and Espionage 11-28-52, Pretenders to the Throne 12-03-52, Axford's Romantic Disaster 12-05-52"
There's also a little two-disc collection that has one 1947 Hornet radio show that has also never been made public like this before either. And it's now on sale

I believe this is Jack McCarthy, or based on him as the Hornet anyway.
The is the cover of Dell Publications' Four Color Comics #496 in 1953, which came out after the radio show had concluded.
This is a doctored photo of Jack McCarthy, the last radio Green Hornet.
This is a drawing of the Hornet's gas-gun done for the 1950's TV show that never saw the light of day, similar to the one used in the 1953 Dell comic cover.

My condolences, Jo
By the way, and for what it's worth, I've put together a couple Green Hornet info/introduction photo albums in my facebook profile. The one entitled The Hornet has already received some nice praise from Radio Spirits. They only cover, deal with the radio era Green Hornet, though ! The first is similar to this thread in many ways:
This next one deals only with some of the comics from that time:
I sincerely hope everyone is having an exceptionally nice Thanks-Giving weekend

OK, the first 10 CD, 20 episode Green Hornet radio show set that Radio Spirits released were shows from some of the earliest electrical transcripts recorded, pre-1940, with the first ever Britt Reid/Green Hornet actor Al Hodge ! But, the cover art used for this collection is from a 1953 painting commissioned for a comic book cover that was issued months AFTER the radio show had ended; with what appears to be the final Britt Reid/Green Hornet radio actor Jack McCarthy as The Hornet ! This would also be the very last radio era Green Hornet comic book.
And now the latest Green Hornet 10 CD, 20 show collection Radio Spirits has recently made available is of the VERY LAST 20 shows from the Green Hornet radio series, which ended in 1953, but uses the cover art from the VERY FIRST Green Hornet comic book to hit the stands in 1940 !!
The question that seems to be begging, maybe even pleading to be asked here is… Were the covers switched at birth !!???

A few radio era Hornet drawings by artist Dan Christensen. This first is based on the corner art from Green Hornet Fights Crime #40 !
