  1. Hopefully this is more BL Green Arrow/BN Titans/any of Kruls Titans issues, and less Rise and Fall Special.  Hell, I’d even settle for it to be like the BN Teen Titans issues after having last week set the bar so low.

    I want to see Krul make it big, but if he keeps putting out Rise and Fall Specials, that’ll never happen.

  2. given that Rise and Fall was a story that was preset and less "his" story, hopefully he will have a little more say in this one.

  3. I agree.  I think the rise and fall titles may not allow as much creative input.


    Put this in the running for cover of the week

  4. Really on the fence with this one. I’ve never been a GA fan…….

  5. So Black Canary is missing from the masthead. Is that because she’s moving back to Birds of Prey?

     I’m a longtime fan of both GA and BC, but this book just never clicked. I liked the Blackest Night story last month, so I may try another issue by Krul. He did solid work on BN Titans.

  6. Not bad, clearly better than the Kreisberg run but…. who are these characters? What’s up with Barry? What’s up with Connor? What’s up with Black Canary? Ollie and Mia have logical reactions – if I don’t approve of them. 4/5 for me, but closer to a 3.5/5. I really want Krul to succeed on this, he knows how to handle Ollie, but… I want Lian back and Ollie to not become Parralax-Archer.

  7. This was an alright issue, but what the hell was with that art?  It was so plain and uninspired, then every once in awhile there was a panel where Dallocchio was apparently channelling Greg Land. Awful, awful art.

  8. This was like a decent story about characters I didn’t recognize – the plotline is interesting enough but so many characters seem off-key. Ollie’s scene with BC rang wrong for me, as did almost every line Barry had in both this issue and the Rise & Fall special. Connor also seemed wrong. Changing your characters to put a pre-planned story line never works out well – I’m hoping this will get better. 

  9. I liked it.

  10. I’m new to Green Arrow, who was the female on the last page? I only picked this up after reading Cry for justice and the One Shot, both of which I really enjoyed.

  11. @shaunbat – that is the current Speedy. This should give you the run down:
