Review: Green Arrow #44 – “Secret of the Wolf”

A new arc takes a turn for the supernnatural in yet another narrative twist for the Emerald Archer.  Benjamin Percy concluded his first arc on GREEN ARROW last month, and while the denoument may have been prematurely reached, it came with a reassuring callback to the tone and setting of Mike Grell’s era of the …

Review: Green Arrow #43 – “The Night Birds Part 3: The Hood”

Is it better for a superhero to pick up speed or slow down for a while? The latest GREEN ARROW gives us a little bit of both. One of the things that was apparent from last month’s latest soft-relaunch of GREEN ARROW was a desperate need for some status quo in the world of the Emerald …

Review: Green Arrow #41 – “The Night Birds Part 1”

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 …
