Review: Green Arrow #2

Published on August 2nd, 2010

I don’t know a lot about Green Arrow to be honest, sure I know he looks like Robin Hood and he is a member of the Justice League, or one of these DC team books, but that’s all.


This and The Flash comic are the only Brightest Day books that I am reading. Now for the two issues in a row J.T. Krul has made me a  fan of Green Arrow. The story starts right after the end of the first issue as Hal Jordan comes to check up on his old friend Ollie Queen, who is now living in the forest. As Ollie tells  Hal Jordan “You have your sector Hal. I’ve got mine”.

At the same time we get a new team of security at Queen Industries trying to take down Ollie as he is now on the run and the city he loves is not his anymore. There is a great shocking conclusion which I will be talking about on this weeks Pick Of The Week podcast, as I don’t want to spoil anything right now.

We also see a bit more of that White Lantern logo which is on a tree as we saw in the first issue, and that is now showing up on the Brightest Day poster. Which make me think ‘hmmmmm maybe I do need to pick up Brightest Day’ as I have a feeling that those two book will be linking up very soon.

You may be thinking this a very fast review, that is because this read like an old school comic. If you’re a fan of great action then this is a book for you. Also J.T. Krul does a great job of showing us the friendships that these two guys have for each other. Hal and Ollie Queen working as a team is pure magic. Something that I loved was seeing how he used  his power ring as they are trying to run away from security team over at Queen Industries.

I do have one complaint about this book however. I am not a big fan of Diogenes Neves and Vicente Cifuente’s art style on this book. I can’t wait for issue #3 of this Green Arrow story line, as it a fun read and it was one of my favorite books of this past week.
