Dialogue is a good thing,

This review is from: Green Arrow: Quiver (Hardcover)
Anybody with half a passing knowledge of Kevin Smith should know what to expect. Good story, excellent characterisation and classic dialogue with some neat asides that put words nobody ever expected in the mouths of our heroes, old and new. In his intro Smith decries those who complained when it originally came out in individual comic edition that it expected too much of a knowledge of the Green Arrow's backstory to properly appreciate. Yeah, maybe you'd pick up something extra by being Mister Class Nerd on the Life and Times of Oliver Queen, AKA The Green Arrow, but it'd be slight methinks. It's a great story which I came to with an OK knowledge of other DC Universe characters, but only knowing the Green Arrow as a peripheral character. After 'Quiver' I'll be looking for older stories of his now to see if he was as smart ass and hotheaded in his comic book youth. I can't fault the art either, though not in the same league as Kingdom Come, it still provides some punchy action sequences and effective dramatic lighting as needed. And the players don't look too bad either. Buy this. Hey, steal it if you have to. But do read it. Nine out of ten cats can't be wrong.
