    I ve mentioned that Green Arrow is my favorite character ever, so it s quite a shame that I ve only read this one now After reading though, all I can say is that this is the worst New 52 volume I ve read as of right now I ve read a few other Green Arrow comics and I m a huge fan of the TV show, so I have a good background of him This volume didn t do him justice, not even one bit He was unlikable, and so were the supporting characters No one will ever beat Felicity Back to Oliver He was somewhat like Tony Stark He was so full of himself, and he was way cocky that usual This latest addition to the Green Arrow series is not that promising.The plot was mediocre The villains were not that interesting The walking toxic garbage thing was a bit interesting, but Blood Rose just didn t do it for me She was boring and didn t strike me as a major villain Honestly I was hoping deep inside that Deathstroke would make an appearance, but sadly he didn t The TV series showed a lot of interesting villains, so maybe this New 52 series can still make a good comeback.The artwork was good, at least I liked how the artist made Oliver look younger and removed the awful beard His costume was an improvement of the others I ve seen He also used a variety o...

    So Green Arrow is not the best thing to come out of the New 52, but it s not the worst thing, either.It lives in the Land of Meh.As other people Sam have pointed out, the Billionaire Playboy Costumed Avenger thing has already been done And, let s face it, done better In a world where Iron Man and Batman reign supreme, Dan Jurgens is going to have to work hard to carve out a niche for Oliver Queen Did he manage to do it in The Midas Touch Ehhhh Not so much.I will say that Jurgens tried to make him cooler, and there were a few things that I really liked about this new Green Arrow Unfortunately, they were mostly cosmetic changes The retarded goatee Gone, and replaced by stubble.The goofy Robin Hood hat Gone, and justgone, thankfully.Beyond that, however, there s still a lot of room for improvement.For starters, I d like to see GA fight a villain that wasn t totally lame Reality TV Killers Are you serious, Mr Jurgens As much as I think reality tv will be the downfall of modern civilization, I don t think the idea worked well in this story The villains came off like punks, and less like a threat to be taken seriously.Midas the toxic swamp dude , was just pathetic Really You felt sorry for the poor guy Not sure what we re supposed to think about his ninja cyborg girlfriend, but I m assuming the story will unfold a bit in the c...

    It s a younger Green Arrow this time around who has his own Batman Oracle to help him while he deals with overpowered super villains and then a lover super villain couple He s still alter ego billionaire playboy, Oliver Queen, who is at odds with some of the higher ups, adding minor tension to the tales I suppose he s something like a Bruce Wayne character in that regard.The super villains tale who liked to post on Youtube was interesting than the latter one One could certainly argue the latter had depth but how many times has such a tale been done Too often in my readings.Written by Dan Ju...

    Oliver Queen is a billionaire playboy by day, daring vigilante known as Green Arrow by night hey wake up I know, it s kind of clich to have the superhero be a billionaire playboy what with the far popular Batman and Iron Man already representing that niche but look, Green Arrow s different he has a bow and arrow Hmm Ok, how to interest the reader he puts different pieces of tech on the end of his arrows so they do different things, say an ice arrow or an airbags arrow No How about a series of nondescript villains he fights Yeah you re right, this book is kind of lame Having read Andy Diggle s far superior Green Arrow book Year One I knew how Queen became Green Arrow but for those coming to this character cold, you re never told so you ll have to figure it out yourself The book is divided into 2 storylines the first, written by JT Krul, has GA take on a team of bad guy supervillains who broadcast their misdeeds online saucy and riddled with plot holes The second, written by Keith Giffen, involves some kind of Toxic Avenger knockoff and a ninja As expected, GA takes em all down by shooting various tech at them ...

    Green Arrow 1Super rich superheroes who are vigilante than hero a DC specialty are tough to enjoy, but their increasing willingness to break laws, to employ their riches to behave like a state with a state, to surveille, to torture, to coerce all illegally all with the breezy justification, At least we re the good guys, is making their ilk almost unreadable for me.When Marvel pauses to consider their privileged heroes, it feels like there is much criticism going on, a recognition that they may not be as good as they themselves think, but DC s rich boys especially Green Arrow, but Batman too just seem to be propagandizing for the goodness of the rich, for their moral superiority, for their protection of the capitalist ideal I need one of these joker s allies, like Naomi Singh or Alfred to do than tell the hero they re supporting that they are uncomfortable with something they re doing they need to remove their support and take a stand I need them to do this if I am going to like these superheroes any I suppose I will have to write a story like that myself, though.Green Arrow 2So a pack of jackpot supervillains, beaten up and dispatched by Green Arrow in Issue 1, set a trap for him with a young fan of theirs murdered on the internet as bait for the Emerald Archer Arrow springs the trap, finds himself surrounded by this pack of super jackpots, an...

    I enjoyed my first foray into the New 52 Green Arrow series It starts off with Green Arrow battling an internet fight club of supervillains who have become internet celebrities by filming their destructing acts and posting the videos online They film a murder to draw Green Arrow out, wanting to film his murder as well He isn t down with that plan and reacts accordingly.Then we see the duo of Midas and Blood Rose after Green Arrow and Oliver Queen as well in another decent story.The art is by Dan Jurgens, and I ve been of fan of his since the 90s He illustrated the famous Death of Superman issue His art still looks the same, so I enjoyed it.They seemed to try to make the comic Green Arrow slightly like the TV version, in physical appearance if nothing else I ve never been a fan of that, as while I enjoy the Arrow show, I liked the comic ve...

    Oh I m sorry I seemed to have taken a wrong turn into the kids section of the New 52 This just seemed like a silly cartoon Dumb villains, dumb story Poor effort.

    It happened by accident.I had ordered a stack of Incredible Hulk back issues on Ebay As an added bonus the seller tossed in a copy of Green Arrow Quiver I was just starting to get back into comics, and I had never paid any attention to DC But, it was free and it was written by Kevin Smith I figured I d give it a shot.By the end of the month I had picked up every single Green Arrow trade I could get my hands on Kevin Smith did an outstanding job bringing Oliver Queen back into the world of DC, but it was Winick that really ran with the character He was everything that other heroes weren t.I ran out and started to pick up Mike Grell s run Green Arrow Year One, Longbow Hunters and Grell s run are an astounding portrait of the character The aging Green Arrow struggles to find his place in the world He starts to realize he isn t going to be around forever and spends the run looking for ways to leave his mark on the world.Back in the present,Oliver Queen was the super powered bad ass He wasn t dark and brooding...

    Above average art and some snappy dialogue, but also some distinctly un interesting and in a lot of cases, redundant secondary characters and villains.Still, gotta love the final reveal of what those canisters on Ollie s belt the whole time actually were
