Green Arrow #2 (2016) Comic Book Review (Warning: possible spoilers ahead)

It seem thing are not looking good for our boisterous bowman but luckily this is a man with a plan. Green Arrow #2 really takes things up a notch with Oliver Queen left for dead off the coast of Seattle and riddled with bloody arrows. This new series is a healthy mix of the original Ollie, the new 52 mystical Green Arrow and also TV’s Arrow bringing in the best parts of all those to converge into one brilliant masterpiece.


With old enemies like Shado and a new nightmarish force looming on the horizon, Ollie is going to need all the help he can get and luckily he has The Black Canary. By the way The Black Canary has a brilliant costume update and also championing his cause is John Diggle, who has crossed over into the 2D world from the TV series.

I cannot stress how much I am loving this series as they have taken some of Green Arrow’s best aspects and then mixed them with a few wild cards and made him anything but a B List Batman. I really cannot say too much about the series without giving away too many spoilers but there is a mystery afoot and it’s going to draw you in, even at this point we don’t know where all the characters stand and we can’t tell who is friend and who is foe.

The series just pops with some fantastic art that further helps it stand apart from other main stream titles. If you’re a fan of the TV series or just want something a little different then this series is totally worth your time so don’t forget to check it out.
