REVIEW:   Ah Oliver Queen, last we paid a visit to our Green Archer he had just learned from Shado that she and  his father Robert had an affair.  They had a kid which ended up being Komodo’s new sidekick, Emiko. Aside from the couple bits of Count Vertigo scattered around the comic, the story was mainly a flashback issue . Which is not a bad thing.

Jeff Lemire (Justice League Dark and The Nobodycontinues to save the Green Arrow name and draws up a compelling story of the past, the sacred artifacts and how one could use them to become immortal and all powerful. We go back to see how Komodo and Oli’s father Robert were connected adding depth to the story. I did feel, however that the ending seemed like it just started a new story without completely summing up the whole Kill Machine/ Desert storyline. The ending of this comic introduces Richard Dragon (1st appearance), a new villain vowing to take over Seattle, but leaves Count Vertigo and the others left out. Also, Fyff totally gets shut down in the worst possible way after getting ready to ask out Noami.

In any case this was a pretty good addition to Lemire’s wonderful take on Oliver Queen and his fall and rise back to prominence.  ~by LEVEL64
