Add “Green Arrow” #15 to the list of DC titles that are just treading water until the relaunch hits. This book wraps up the Reverend Billy Miggs arc with one drawn out action sequence that pretty much runs cover to cover. It’s an issue that tries to present a large scale final showdown in Washington D.C. but it comes across as flat and uninspired.

There’s just nothing particularly appealing about James Patrick’s finale. The story plods from one action sequence to another, never drawing you in or selling you on what’s going on. There are a few good exchanges between characters but there’s also some clunky and contrived dialogue. This isn’t a horrible issue but ultimately it feels like filler.

Visually Agustin Padilla’s art does the issue no favors. Many of the over-sized panels seem to be meant to drag the action sequences out longer than needed. There are also several pages where the attention detail falls off considerably. It looks rushed and does nothing to help the already lackluster story.

Like other DC titles approaching the New 52 relaunch, “Green Arrow” #15 just seems to be going through the motions. It’s a pointless book that drags out a story arc that should have ended last issue. Thank goodness this wave of filler material is over. Bring on September and the new #1’s.
