    Like his former sidekick, Ollie understands the real threat of Amanda Waller, which sets up the focus of the title for at least half a year. It’s a good time to be a Green Arrow fan again even before the return of a moderately recent GA villain.

    This book is doing an amazing job of digging deep into the long lore that has built the Arrow family while also making it an engaging story that can bring in new readers. And if I wasn’t already excited, one of my favorite obscure characters is returning soon!

    Joshua Williamson remind us why it sucks to be a super-hero as Oliver Queen is back (maybe to stay). But he also proves why Green Arrow has proven to be the heart of the DC Universe. Whether he was forcing his imfamous chili recipe on the JLA, heving heart to heart chats with Green Lantern, brofighting with Hawkman, or romancing Black Canary, he has proven to be the most relatable and most human member of the team. And this is highlighted here as Ollie travels the globe to find out why there is no Justice League. But also to help his own paranoia at the possibility of not being in the correct reality. And while starting to believe he is where he is suppose to be, it looks like we are getting back into the Green Arrow storyline as we get a guest cameo from the early 2000’s Kevin Smith villain, Onomatopoeia. Which is exciting as it was those issues and stories that made sense of a totally blown to smithereens Green Arrow returning to life.

    Green Arrow #7 was a nice surprise. Even if youre not a huge fan of the character or havent been reading Green Arrow, Williamson does a phenomenal job taking a pulse of whats been happening throughout DC Comics this past year. Picture this issue like cliff notes. So, if you have been interested in getting back into DC Comics, Id pick this issue up post haste. If youre a Green Arrow fan, Green Arrow #7 was nothing like the prior installments. It has direction, purpose, and sanity. All aspects that were missing from the prior issues. And if this reviewer is correct, I think it will be Mr. Queen who initiates getting the band back together again. And honestly, who doesnt want to see the Justice League back in action?

    This was a great start to the rest of this new series. The opening initial six issues were a great self contained story, but I’m really glad Williamson isn’t going anywhere now that those issues are over. He’s really proven himself as a fantastic storyteller with this character and the notion of a long term run with GA like he had with the Flash has got me beyond excited. Green Arrow will always be one of my favorite characters, so I can rest easy knowing he’s in good hands. Just don’t overwork yourself there, Josh. I know how many books you’re writing right now. Godspeed (not that one), and here’s to many, many adventures with ol’ Green Jeans to come!

    Another excellent issue from Williamson and his artistic team. A real moment for Oliver (and the reader) to stop and think about everything the Dawn of DC movement has brought to the table so far. It also signifies perhaps the beginning of the journey towards a new Justice League forming.

    Oliver Queen returns to earth for the second arc of Green Arrow. This issue sees Ollie catching up on recent events in the DC Universe as he visits each former member of the Justice League to find out why there isn’t a Justice League any longer. The characters’ interactions as written are stellar, but the meeting between Green Arrow and Green Lantern, which should be the most impactful, doesn’t quite sing. Part of that is the visuals, which feel empty in the sparse landscape. The two different art styles on display don’t mesh well, but whether by design or happy circumstance, they do serve as a visual cue for Oliver exiting the realm of flashy super heroics and stepping into the shadows in his pursuit of Amanda Waller. The issue wobbles a bit but doesn’t fall down, keeping this stellar series on the right track.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Green Arrow #7 is a tone setter for this series moving forward. Back from his Multiverse adventure Oliver Queen takes steps to be proactive about being part of the bigger Dawn of DC direction. In the process several characters arcs and plotlines are developed that should make Green Arrow one of the most important titles for DC Comics.

    Green Arrow #7 begins the next arc with an issue-long recap of the past that doesn’t tell you anything you didn’t already know and does nothing to find Roy. Williamson picked the oddest time for a cooldown issue after the poor finale in issue #6, and the art team’s output is jarring.
