Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Oliver Queen is the head of a multimillion-dollar technology corporation who secretly moonlights as a street-level crime fighter aided by a few trusted allies and an array of gadgets. Sound familiar? As part of its New 52 relaunch last year, DC Comics introduces a younger, grittier Green Arrow that ends up feeling more like “Batman-lite” than the Robin Hood–inspired derring-do whose weapon of choice was an arrow with a boxing glove at the end of it. In the first story, writer Krul showcases a more contemporary approach to the character, yet his attempts to update Green Arrow for the 21st century—like giving him a “Q-Pad” and Internet famous supervillains powered by designer drugs—come off contrived or only partially explored. The second story, written by Giffen, pits the Emerald Archer against a gun-wielding robotic ninja and her lovelorn brute made of decomposing waste, with little reasoning behind the fight other than the hero protecting his painfully obvious alter ego. The new Green Arrow does little to distinguish itself from all the other masked vigilantes despite the presence of veteran artists Dan Jurgens and George Pérez, whose work is merely satisfactory.

    Awesome Start! A Gotta-Read If You Want Off the Beaten DC/JL Path!

    I recently got back into the DC/JL World after a long hiatus (like, 25 yrs) and even though I waded back in with "Justice League: Origin," I found myself wanting to expand beyond the typical Batman and Superman story lines.

    After encountering Green Arrow in that book, I was intrigued. So I started with this book. A great decision on my part!

    The Green Arrow back story isn't as popular as Superman's or Batman's, and you're not gonna get much about it in this book. Instead, you're jumping right into the action as Oliver Queen is already fully enveloped in his alter ego. However, if you do what I did and read up a little on how Queen became Green Arrow on your own before getting into this one (it's not quite parallel to Batman's but it's similar), you should have no trouble at all adapting to this one.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did...and am!

    The Green Arrow battles villains across the world and struggles

    The Green Arrow battles villains across the world and struggles to keep up his personal business appearance.

    The illustrations are well done and detailed.

    Until later when Blood Rose appears, the narrative feels fairly trite and lackluster. Once the Blood Rose team appear, more depth begins to appear in the story.

    Overall, an adequate read.
