The last Green Arrow issues have been pretty good. However, with the direction Anne Nocenti is taking the series, I definitely want to be onboard for the long haul.
The beginning of this issue finds Oliver Queen in action as Green Arrow. He is reflecting upon his life, and quoting some Shakespeare too. As he moves over rooftops, he is attacked by the Skylark triplets. He is immediately hooked on them, and is infatuated with the three. They introduce themselves, and convince him they should work together. As he goes back to work, he prepares for another journey he is about to undertake. He also works with his other two main assistants Naomi and Jax. Afterwards, Green Arrow takes off on an airplane with the Skylark triplet. However, he finds they are not exactly what he thought.
Anne Nocenti understands Oliver Queen in and out, and is the best writer to take control of the series (if she keeps up the quality of her writing) since JT Krul took control. Harvey Tolbao’s art is fantastic. His grittiness adds to the mean streets of Seattle, and he has a specific way he portrays Ollie that is interesting. He shows the frustration of Ollie in his normal life and his lack of care towards having some chin hairs. Together, this team is off to a good start, and I definitely cannot wait to see what’s next. I haven’t said that really for this series since Krul departed the series….
