Lord Of The Forest

Green Arrow (Volume 5) #1
Written by J.T. Krul
Art by Digoenes Neves

 

After the disaster that was the Rise of Arsenal mini, many were expecting this series to be awful as well. I didn’t think so. Roy Harper’s descent into madness was clearly editorially driven. Krul is a good writer and he has shown that in the past. This issue is filled with his strengths. Green Arrow is now a vigilante living out of the forest that grew magically in Star City in Brightest Day. It is a pretty brilliant concept and makes Star City much more interesting then it ever has been before. Queen Industries is taken over by a russian woman in a mask – a really creepy nun-looking mask too. I like her already as a villain. Who is she? I have no idea. The biggest plus of this book has to be Neves’s artwork which is consistently beautiful. I just love it! I was very impressed with this issue and I’d say Green Arrow is the best it has been since Kevin Smith’s run. I hope Connor Hawke and Speedy show up eventually though.
