Review: Green Arrow #1



Green Arrow #1

Review by: Anthony



Oliver Queen has always been the epitome of having a lot to deal with in the DC Universe.

With a corporation to run, constant personal turmoil to deal with, and always being in the middle of fights way above his level when helping the Justice League, Green Arrow lives no easy life, and that’s often what makes this grumpy, veteran, mortal hero so relatable. There’s no doubt that Green Arrow has a large and dedicated fan base and since his reboot in 2011 with the rest of the DC line up, the fans have been somewhat disappointed with the New 52 run that Green Arrow had, and while his comic was never canceled and it managed a full 52 issue continuous run until Rebirth it was time to heed the fan’s call and bring Green Arrow back to his roots, so throw on a goatee, and old school Green Arrow attitude, and a familiar but charismatic relationship with Black Canary and you have your classic and extremely enjoyable to read Green Arrow story, but like I said, Oliver Queen’s life comes with a lot of struggle, any reader knows that, and with so much on Oliver’s plate, they’re not dialing back that struggle at all.

Green Arrow has had his bouts with the Justice League and some of their most dangerous and greatest battles, but he still borders on the line of a B or a C class hero. What makes him so great is that fact exactly, and because he’s so out of his league, but keeps his sarcastic and cocky personality he’s an easy character to love, but that doesn’t come without a price. Green Arrow is sometimes arrogant, full of pride, and sometimes lets things go over his head despite his genius intellect. Such is the human condition and unfortunately that can hurt you a lot. Queen Industries is thriving, Queen’s relationship with fan favorite Black Canary is going as well as it could ever, and his sister Emi who Oliver has been watching over and helping train in the way of the arrow for the past year is Oliver’s pride and joy, but even in the midst of so much positivity Oliver finds himself utterly betrayed by someone close to him, and someone he without a shred of doubt trusted with his life. This huge shift of tone and mood comes within only a couple of pages of each other does a fine job of transitioning unexpectedly.

I’ve always preferred Green Arrow as a team player rather than solo artist. Oliver is the kind of guy to say he works alone but always has someone along with him, and they really played on that idea well in this story, and I’m sure that will continue in the future as a “Black Canary and Green Arrow” kind of way. As I stated before, Rebirth has mostly been about returning to DC’s roots without rebooting, and Green Arrow is no exception to his plan, much of what we saw in the old Green Arrow stories we’re seeing again in this new 52 continuity and it’s extremely refreshing from the previous and sometimes not great Green Arrow run. The new 52 was about trying new things, Rebirth is about effectively combining the new with the old and from it comes a compelling, uniquely drawn and fun to read Green Arrow #1. The story so far promises a lot of classic Green Arrow story driven fun with a beautiful art style and a very old school Oliver Queen. I’m definitely excited for what’s to come in this series and what’s down the road for Mr. Queen.
