  1. I think this is one of DC’s character that I am the most familiar with because of well of course the Arrow tv series. (Which is another one that I am shamefully behind with watching lol) While it is very unlikely I will ever read this, I’m glad that despite a few small thing you have seemed to enjoy this one for the most part. The art looks great, and you definitely described Arrow’s character in a very good way a loudmouth who thinks with his heart, and later with his brain lol😂 Great post!

    1. Hahahah yes! Arrow has helped launch a wonderful and fun (at least some) universe on TV. I do have to mention that his character on TV stole a lot of Batman’s lore/character instead of sticking to Green Arrow’s true colours. You’d get a better idea of what I mean by checking out animated shows/movies or comics with Green Arrow in it. 😀 He has a particular personality that no other hero really embodies hahah Thanks for reading, Michel! 😀

  2. Great thoughts Lashaan, have to be honest I was put off reading this due to seeing some previews of what must have been Byrne’s cartoonish art style but glad to hear Percy’s writing is top-notch (he wrote the scripted ‘Wolverine: The Long Night’ podcast, well worth a listen).

    I’m more of a fan of some of the older Green Arrow stuff, have you read any of Mike Grell’s run from the late 80s? I think you’d REALLY like it as it’s aimed at mature readers and deals with a lot of adult themes – the tone is not too dissimilar to Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing actually (minus the Gothic horror element). It begins with ‘The Longbow Hunters’ mini series and the rest of the run begins with Volume 1 – “Hunters Moon”. If it was adapted for tv it would be a lot more like the Netflix Marvel shows than Arrow.

    Andy Diggle/Jock’s “Year One” is certainly one of the best stories of more recent years (and obviously influence Arrow) – I reviewed it a few years ago.

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was that because it was a really random art style to suddenly change to. I’ve heard about that podcast though but I have yet to understand how that works or if it’s in continuity with anything really… Is it like some kind of audiobook type of story?

      I didn’t even take a minute to explore what older titles exists with the character, although I do recognize the costume and style. I’ll definitely have to look into more now that I got a recc’ from you for it! The only other Green Arrow story I own right now is in fact Year One hahah I actually got it thanks to you. I believe your review is what made me even get my hands on it. I looked up your post and I’m laughing at how wayyyyy back we go. 😮 Almost three years ago! Good stuff. 😀

      1. Wow that’s awesome my friend, we do indeed go way back and long may our interactions continue! I’m humbled my review lead to you picking Year One up, I really do think you would love Mike Grell’s run, although it would be a bit of an investment as it’s currently nine volumes but well worth it as the content is VERY good.
