Star City has endured all manner of threats over the years,
but when a millionaire wants to bring law and order to its
citizens, the entire world is threatened. His spell encases
the city in a sphere impervious to even Superman, and the
law bringers are demon behemoths that will kill over the slightest
infraction. Green Arrow marshals the most unlikely army of
all to save the city - and the world - from the threat. But
deals need to be cut, sacrifices made, and the consequences
may be worse than the problem...
is yet another example of how one superhero can be transformed,
almost over night, from a dull second rate character to one
of the most well loved characters. It started, for me anyway,
with Kevin Smith's
always regarded Green Arrow as a rather blander version of
Batman (I know, I know! I am a philistine). This series has
gradually turned me into a Green Arrow convert. Oliver
Queen (The Green Arrow) no longer seems like a camp and rather
bland superhero (that's how I used to see him a few years
ago). Sure he has about the most unconvincing disguise ever

Hood movie. But the writing seems to have matured a lot in
recent years - to the point where I am proud to declare that
I am a Green Arrow convert.
collection rattles along at a fair old pace and the
introduction of The Riddler adds a comedic twist to the proceedings
- even if his riddles are extremely easy to figure out. But,
it is the ending that makes everything worth while.
you've not yet experienced a Green Arrow graphic novel,
or have always thought the character was a bit lame, try this
release out. I can guarantee (not money back I hasten to add)
that you'll fall in love with the characters.
