Library JournalA lot of attention has been put on the character Green Arrow following the debut of the television series Arrow. In this second volume of his current series, billionaire playboy–turned–emerald archer Oliver Queen finds himself assailed by three hive-minded daughters of a man named Lear, a woman who believes herself to be a robot who thought she was human, and a Chinese businessman in the process of stealing his company. In more ways than one, the three collected adventures are truly Shakespearean. Writer Nocenti crafts the plots with a great deal of complexity and larger issues while at the same time making them relatable to the reader. Tolibao provides art befitting the adventurous yet flighty character of Oliver Queen and a whimsicality to the actions and expressions of the rest of the cast. Since DC rebooted its entire line, here we are seeing a very different Green Arrow as Nocenti skillfully depicts him in a fresh, novel fashion that will stand on its own for years to come.
Verdict This is the perfect book for anyone who wants a light, daring jaunt into superheroics, or fans of the TV series Arrow.—Alger C. Newberry III, Genesee Dist. Lib., Flint, MI
