    Lyles Movie Files

    Green Arrow #6 shows the long-term viability of this character and supporting cast. And at this point, DC needs all the bullseyes it can get.

    This has been a great run and a great re-introduction to this character. I’m immensely glad this book happened, and cannot overstate my joy that it’s going to keep going. Williamson created my all-time favorite run for the Flash with a long, character rich series that loved its source material deeply, and I can very easily see his Green Arrow reaching those same heights if it’s allowed that lifespan. This arc paid tribute to one of the best eras of the character while continuing to move him and his world forward in a way that felt satisfying to long time fans, and welcoming to newcomers. That is the mark of a truly great comic.

    Williamson deserves credit for centering this story so heavily inn two characters who haven’t gotten any spotlight in a long time, Connor Hawke and Lian Harper. It’s helped to build a great extended-family feel for Green Arrow, similar to the one Superman has going right now. But with Ollie back from space, the pressure is high to have the next act equal this one—and based on the cliffhanger, the odds are looking good.

    DC brings the first arc of G.A. to a close that brings surprises and reunions with great fanfare but in my opinion, the rotating artists really hurt the momentum of this issue (Frankly, I could have done without Trevor Hairsine but Sean Izaakse and Phil Hester do a fantastic job while the latter proves what an iconic Green Arrow artist he is ); While Oliver Queen gets closure from his time-jumping adventure, Roy Harper comes face-to-face with Amanda Waller that will leave anyone shocked (**NO SPOILERS**) and this has to be one of the best Green Arrow series that continues to build on continuity while forging ahead with new stories that will amaze any G.A. fan.

    An excellent finale to the first chapter of Joshua Williamson’s Green Arrow. Action-packed and entertaining right down to the final panel. The future is looking bright for Oliver Queen even whilst several of his key allies are left in danger…

    Green Arrow #6 is a perfectly serviceable ending to a perfectly serviceable arc that unveils the secret villain behind Ollie’s woes, brings the family back together, and plants seeds for what’s to come. Despite a small squad of artists on the finale, the art team managed to strike a better balance when compared to issue #5.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    When Green Arrow first came out, I was pumped for this series. It’s been a long time since we had an actual Green Arrow ongoing. I was looking forward to dipping my toes back into the character. Heck, it even started off intriguing with the time traveling. However, as the series progressed, it became more and more clear that we were just being tossed around from issue to issue without a true direction in sight. The only reason anyone knew Green Arrow #6 was ending this story arc was because of solicits. Nowhere in the last issue or even as this one kicked off would you have been able to tell by the plot that Ollie would discover who was behind this and why? How do I know? Well, think of how Green Arrow #5 ended with Ollie ultimately getting shot by a bunch of other Green Arrow’s in the chest only for him to arrive in some random new time period.

    And because the story was so whimsically put together, Williamson had to Scooby-Doo the fans do even come close to discovering who was behind everything and why. Now, as much as this feels like an attack on Williamson, this is actually a common trend by comic writers now. They continue to throw curveball after curveball to make the story so wild that they paint themselves into a corner and have to quickly reveal and summarize in a matter of three pages the entire premise of the arc/ series. It’s poor writing. It’s a poor setup. It’s poor storytelling. And frankly, I don’t know why writers continue to do this. I followed this arc through to the end hoping for clues and answers only to be forcefully told who was behind this and why. Green Arrow #6 made all the prior issues pointless and made me hop off this series. I know we can do better and I especially know Williamson can do better because we’ve all seen him do it before.

    Green Arrow #6 does a good job at wrapping up Oliver Queen’s multiverse journey. His return was given the proper payoff while reestablishing his archenemy’s previous status. Now that this story is resolved we can see the rest of Team Arrow integrated into the story better that elevates the entire franchise and not just Oliver Queen.

    There are reunions and surprises galore, as DC wraps up the first storyline in Green Arrow’s new series. The change in artists for the different storylines isn’t too jarring, but Sean Izaakse is the standout. It seems every issue of Green Arrow has to include an almost splash page-like shot that tugs at the heartstrings, and that continues here. Amanda Waller looms large, and it feels like her story is only starting.
