Customer reviews

Jeff Lemire's run on Green Arrow starts off fresh, previous volumes needn't be read. As the book begins we are at a point in time where Green Arrow is already a member of the JLA. I haven't read the volume where that happens yet so am not sure exactly where in time we are. This book takes place in its present but also has a lot of flashbacks. Lemire's Green Arrow is a much more darker man and the plot is being set up in this volume, involving Oliver's father and a mysterious cult or clan of the Dragons. Some new characters have been invented for this issue and a few old ones come back into play for the The New 52 such as Count Vertigo. Vertigo has an issue devoted to himself which deals with his background story, that I enjoyed so much. I love villain background stories! The book ends on an interesting note and the plot is set up and has one interested to keep reading the story. The art is fantastic and perfectly suits the mood and darker atmosphere of this volume. Overall, though, I wouldn't say this was better than the first three volumes, just different, but certainly in a good way.
