Overview

The stress of running a multi-billion dollar corporation and being the guardian of Star City has frayed Oliver Queen's last nerve. When he encounters the genetically modified triplets known as "Skylark" during a mission, Queen, entranced by their beauty and the new techonology they give him, agrees to meet their "father" King Leer.

King Leer's fortress, buried deep within a frozen moutainside, hides the true nature of his work, genetically modifying animals of all species - including humans - in order to take over the world. His work is funded by the gold mine he has seized and rules the native people through starvation by polluting the enviornment. Can Oliver Queen stop King Leer before he releases his creations upon the world, or will he end up as one of Leer's experiments?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A 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

I have the first 4 Volumes haven't picked up the 5th yet but this is my least favorite. Personally I hate Taliboa's art in this book. So far Volumes 1&3 are my favorite mainly due to the artwork. Volume 4 is making things weird with magical relics and crap. Hopefully Volume 5 will be good.
