So I don't know much about this character except maybe now and then from the Justice League cartoons and now the show Arrow. So I thought, well, might as well read a comic with this character. And this was pretty good, interesting but good. It does make me want to continue watching Arrow. The flashbacks to him on the island were honestly, the most interesting moments and when he meets the later characters, at least in the first season. So it was interesting reading about Oliver on the island in a different story at least. Anyway, this comic, pretty good read. Like the art as well.

The cover by Jock is simply breathtaking. Turn the pages and you'll be speechless.

A lot of times publishers try to strike lightning twice. Batman: Year One was such a huge critical and probably financial success that DC Comics and other companies have tried many times to do other properties "Year One" style. I don't think they've been successful overall. Here, however, Andy Diggle and Jock have crafted such a remarkable story that this belongs right along with Frank Miller & Davis Mazzucchelli's Batman story. Diggle's version of Oliver Queen is maybe my favorite. His turn from nearly worthless socialite to emerald archer is fantastic. Jock's art is fantastic and fits perfectly. Overall, this book is tremendous. I can't imagine someone not liking this book!
