A darkness creeps into Seattle as a post-Convergence era for Green Arrow begins in The New DC Universe. If there has been one consistent throughout GREEN ARROW‘s run since the New 52 re-launch, it’s been change. The post-Flashpoint character struggled to find an identity throughout J.T. Krul and Keith Giffen’s initial issues, Ann Nocenti’s incongruous run that involved …
