Format: Paperback
The stories running through issues #17-24 of DC Comics’ New 52 Green Arrow series are collected, along with issue #23.1, as Green Arrow Volume 4: The Kill Machine TP (The New 52) (Green Arrow (DC Comics Paperback)). After three volumes of dire storytelling, someone at DC Comics has finally watched the Arrow TV series and realised just what can be done with a comic book series. In comes Count Vertigo, Shado, Richard Dragon, a dodgy father who was knee-deep in something suspicious, even more conspiracies, and mysterious goings-on on that island, whilst still keeping hold on the previous New 52 background – just deepening it and adding more texture, much of it, while inspired by the TV series, recognisably drawn from the Old DC universe. And the artwork is fairly spectacular as well.

This is a superb new beginning for the series, and should really be treated as a new volume 1 – you can safely ignore the first three volumes and just start from here: you won’t miss anything interesting or useful.

I have to add that the ‘lost tribes’ business is pretty silly, on a par with the League of Assassins’ mission as set out in the ‘Batman Begins’ film. But hey, it is only a comic book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By James Lyle on 29 July 2014
Format: Paperback
Green Arrow always seemed like an uninteresting hero to me. Perhaps it was his old Errol Flynn-style Robin Hood garb that he once wore that threw me off, or simply that he seemed liked just another archer in a sea of other superheroes with a bow, but I was blind to how appealing this character might be. Then, I was introduced to the excellent TV show Arrow, which delivered a mature, realistic and modern take on the genre, and was fresh, fun and tense entertainment. Wanting to learn more, I looked forth to find my new fictional friend in the pages of the books. Having heard that his treatment in the New 52 relaunch of DC's books had a rocky start, I skipped the first three volumes and moved ahead to volume 4, which features a marvellous cover invoking the imagery of the TV show I had just fallen in love with.

The Kill Machine begins without the need for subtlety, allowing for character development to progress through the book without the need for prior reading (so, we're already off to a good start). Oliver Queen had endured years alone stranded on an island, training himself to become the best fighter he could be, so that he would return to his home city and seek justice on the criminals that plague his city. His playboy facade disguises himself from his alter ego, the Green Arrow, who has established himself as one of the world's best vigilantes, even earning himself a place in the Justice League of America. However, all of this comes toppling down when Oliver is framed for the assassination of the head of Queen Consolidated. What follows is a high-octane fuelled journey that spans the globe, and brings further insight into the conspiracy behind Oliver's time on the Island and his father's dark past.

Jeff Lemire's run on Green Arrow starts off fresh, previous volumes needn't be read. As the book begins we are at a point in time where Green Arrow is already a member of the JLA. I haven't read the volume where that happens yet so am not sure exactly where in time we are. This book takes place in its present but also has a lot of flashbacks. Lemire's Green Arrow is a much more darker man and the plot is being set up in this volume, involving Oliver's father and a mysterious cult or clan of the Dragons. Some new characters have been invented for this issue and a few old ones come back into play for the The New 52 such as Count Vertigo. Vertigo has an issue devoted to himself which deals with his background story, that I enjoyed so much. I love villain background stories! The book ends on an interesting note and the plot is set up and has one interested to keep reading the story. The art is fantastic and perfectly suits the mood and darker atmosphere of this volume. Overall, though, I wouldn't say this was better than the first three volumes, just different, but certainly in a good way.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After the disappointment of the first 3 Green Arrow volumes, Lemire and Sorrentino come out of the block like Usain Bolt and put Oliver Queen on the ropes in a deadly fashion. Everything is taken from Oliver and he doesn't understand why, but as he begins to unravel the mystery of who Komodo is and why he wants him dead, he learns that his role as Green Arrow wasn't as miraculous as he once thought.

The mystery of the Outsiders, Robert Queen's treasure hunting days and new character Emiko add to the lore of not only Green Arrow but the larger DC universe.

The art is absolutely fantastic and does a great job of highlighting action and danger, and the often lesser saturated colouring contrasted with big explosions of colour the next really keeps you on your toes.

A must read for any comic book fan and really worth the wait after the horrendous first 3 volumes of the series.
