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 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.
