This is a mixed bag of stories, and the opening Hawkman team-up doesn’t actually have an ending, apparently stopping half-way through the Hawkman issue. The succeeding ‘Harrow’ story is a pretty dire one, once more feeling like a 1970s back-up story, and not one that is supposed to be a flagship series for the new DC line. The Justice League issues, while chronologically belonging here, do not add anything to the Green Arrow series itself, as the entire Trinity War / Forever Evil storyline has no noticeable impact on this series. The issue #0 story merely sets up the character of the rich playboy who gets a lot of people killed and feels the need to make amends which drives him to become a better person and fight crime scenario. You time would be much better spent reading volume 4 of this series, which, while keeping the background, starts anew with a much deeper storyline, and shows what should have been done from the beginning, instead of wasting three volumes on third-rate stories.

Issue #14 - “Sky War” - opens with GA dangling on a wire from the Arrow Plane and fighting Thanagarians who are chasing Hawkman (who is carrying a young lady). He has assumed that the Thanagarians are the baddies because there are more of them. After an aerial fight, the baddies run off with the girl, and GA takes Hawkman back to his place.Read more ›
This volume opens up with a story about how Oliver ends up on his fabled island, working for his father on an oil rig when it is attacked by terrorists. A decent story that wipes the cocky, brashness from Oliver and begins his journey into becoming a vigilante.
Following issue 0 is a 2 parter featuring everyone's favourite Thanagarian, Hawkman. Oliver returns from his recent trip to China to find Hawkman battling Thanagarian Warhawk soldiers who are trying to kidnap his friend Emma. Oliver initially lends support to Hawkman successfully, saving Emma, but eventually she is taken by a Warhawk and this forces both Hawkman and Green Arrow to retreat and come up with a plan. It's an interesting team up that you will see again in the short lived Justice League of America but doesn't really amount to much long term.
The next story is about Green Arrow breaking up an arms shipment, which brings him the ire of local arms dealer Harrow. Harrow is a brutal man who loves to fight dogs and eventually puts a bounty on Oliver's head when he breaks up one of his dog fights. The side story here is about Harrow's henchman, a small man known as Pike, and Harrow's girlfriend, who plot against Harrow to stop his brutality and empty his wallet but need Green Arrow to save them eventually. Not a terrible story as it shows a softer side to Oliver when he tries to talk Pike down from blowing up a building and killing himself, but it seems strange to name a book after a villain who appears for just 2 issues and probably not for more than 10 pages in total.Read more ›
