Nature Of Green Arrow I Think It Could Be The of Green Arrow I think it could be the I think Green Arrow at least outside the Justice League simply sucksGreen Arrow 5Toxic Sludge Freak who likens himself to Swamp Thing you re not you douchebag happens to be the boyfriend lover of Blood Rose comes to kick Oliver s ass They fight There s a banal nd twist Thrilling NextGreen Arrow 6So the Toxic Sludge Freak is Midas the titular villain of this volume and his love affair with Blood Rose turns out to be a somewhat promising storyline but that is the only positive I can take away from Green Arrow I hate this version of Oliver ueen I hate the corporate machinations I hate Green Arrow s support team computer genius girl and tech genius boy I hate the villains I hate the action I hate the book s politics I pretty much hate this book I was about to add Green Arrow to my file at Black Bowser Nope Not now Oliver ueen 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 nd of his Arrows So They Do Different Things Say so they do different things say 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 ueen 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 xpected GA takes Lidice Remembered Around The World em all down by shooting various tech at themmbedded in the tips of his arrows In between naps I looked up to read Oliver ueen getting lectured by his CEO about running his company Because that s what yo. D babies buying their super powers and treating the world as their playground Along with their rotting man monster Midas and the assassin Blood Rose Rush plans to kill a super hero live on the Internet Even with his cutting. Above average art and some snappy dialogue but also some distinctly un interesting and in a lot of cases redundant secondary characters and villainsStill gotta love the final reveal of what those canisters on Ollie s belt the whole time actually were It happened by accidentI had ordered a stack of Incredible Hulk back issues on Ebay As an added bonus the seller tossed in a copy of Green Arrow uiver 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 shotBy the You Re Nose Is In My Crotch And Other Things You Shouldn T Know About The Kennedy Detail end of the month I had picked upvery single Green Arrow trade I could get my hands on Kevin Smith did an outstanding job bringing Oliver ueen back into the world of DC but it was Winick that really ran with the character He was In Search Of A Way Two Journeys Of Discovery everything that other heroes weren tI 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 worldBack in the presentOliver ueen was the super powered bad ass He wasn t dark and brooding Oliver was an aging super hero with the best of intentions The story Winick told was the story of a powerless superhero that was finally starting to grow up and move forward in his life His family developed and assembled around him He was a man preparing for the next big stage in his life whatever that may have beenAnd then something changedI suppose it started with the Wedding Winick s post wedding stories were still good anntertaining but they just lacked the same feel as before Every few issues boasted a new guest starThey handed the book to Kriesburg with the promise that we d get a new and Women Love Girth The Fattest 100 Facts On The Kennedy Detail exciting side of Green Arrow Kriesburg promptly ditched thentire supporting cast and took away the family aspect of the story The stories weren t bad it just lacked that something specialThen things got Come Correggere Il Proprio Romanzo even worse Green Arrow who had slowly been built into an integral part of the DC Universe was now that guyverybody can fuck around with Editoral needs a hero to cross the line and kill a bad guy Let s use Green Arrow We need a guy to stand around the White Lantern tree Let s use Green ArrowThey used them because people cared about Green Arrow but Pilgrims Musa And Sheri In The New World evidently not THAT muchSo I am going to be honest When I heard about the reboot I thought at the very least Green Arrow would be given a fresh start It was sad to see the light hearted buy gruff veteran fade away but I figured the future brought with it new potentialIn thend they killed Green ArrowThis new Arrow might wear the same colors He might have the same name but it is NOT the same Oliver ueen I gave it all of four issues to impress me and I ventually walked away Every aspect of Oliver ueen

The Emerald Archer returns relaunched for a new generation of readers The masked vigilante Green Arrow is used to looking for trouble but now trouble's come looking for him Enter Rush and his gang of thrill seeking trust fun. U want to read about in a superhero comic corporate rules This isn t the worst superhero comic book but it is undeniably bland Even the great George Perez s artwork can t save this snooze fest as Krul or Giffen fail to show the reader why Green Arrow is a superhero they should care about or ven why he s a semi famous character who s recently been given his own TV show With no large storyline interesting villain or particularly original character in the driving seat Green Arrow is a limp and disappointing start to the series 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 go billionaire playboy Oliver ueen 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 regardThe 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 readingsWritten by Dan Jurgens JT Krul and Keith Giffen Artwork by a number of people and some of them were Dan Jurgens David Baron Rob Leigh and George PerezNote that this is a reboot of Green Arrow following 52 STORYPLOTTINGPANELS B to B plus ARTISTIC PRESENTATION B to B plus ACTION SCENES B to B plus CHARACTERSDIALOGUE B DC MYTHOLOGY B OVERALL GRADEB to B plus WHEN READ Curve Major A Bbw Romance Heroes Out Of Uniform early to mid March 2013 So Green Arrow is not the best thing to come out of the New 52 but it s not the worst thingitherIt lives in the Land of MehAs other people Sam have pointed out the Billionaire PlayboyCostumed 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 ueen Did he manage to do it in The Midas TouchEhhhh Not so muchI 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 stubbleThe goofy Robin Hood hat Gone and justgone thankfullyBeyond that however there s still a lot of room for improvementFor starters I d like to see GA fight a villain that wasn t totally lame Reality TV KillersAre you serious Mr JurgensAs 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 seriouslyMidas 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 ninjacyborg girlfriend but I m assuming the story will unfold a bit in the coming issues As a side note I was somewhat annoyed by the abrupt outfit change when they switched artists toward the nd On the last page of one issue GA is facing off with Ninja Rose or whatever her name was and their costumes were one way In the next page new issue and artist the look of the costumes were different I understand what happened but since the scene flowed between two issues it was jarring Not to mention Oliver ueen went from a handsome young man to a slightly older dude that looked like his nose had been broken in too many bar fights the ninja chick suddenly bar The petite ninja chick suddenly like a stocky bodybuilder and Naomi ueen s own personal Oracle was transformed from a tech geek in a vest to a chick who painted her clothing on I was not a fan of the new lookI m not giving up on Green Arrow or Jurgens but there are definitely some things that can be improved on in this comic Here s hoping Volume 2 will be better I ve mentioned that Green Arrow is my favorite character ver so it s uite 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 Entre O Amor E A Paixo even one bit He was unlikable and so were the supporting characters No one willver 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 promisingThe 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 comebackThe artwork was good at least I liked how
#The Artist Made Oliver Look #artist made Oliver look and removed the awful beard His costume was an improvement of the others I ve seen He also used a variety of arrows so the artwork looked alive255 stars Rounded up because Arrow will always be my favorite character I m really hoping volume 2 would be a huge improvement over this mediocre crap I guess I m not giving up on the series and the author just yet.
