I read this a long time ago. Looking forward to revisiting it. If I remember correctly, Green Arrow (2011) got really good around issue 40. I haven’t looked at it to check but I think Lemire was writing at least that time. Could be mistaken.
I just finished 17, it looks excellent in couch mode. I don’t read all the comics in couch mode, but this story propels itself like a good movie, so watching it on a bigger screen is a great compliment to the book. I’m liking this story so far!
Is this your first time reading Green Arrow: The Kill Machine?
Yep! First time
Oliver is perhaps the worst archer in this story. What gives him the edge on his opponents?
He heals fast throughout the story - I’m partly attributing that to his youth and physical fitness. His reflexes and gut instincts may have been inherited from his family, since they are all part of the Arrow Clan.
What was your favorite moment?
The moment where Emerson is shot is pretty powerful. The panel art was fantastic. Emi surprised me too. At first I thought she was a typical kid taking gymnastics classes. It was shocking to see her as a determined, killer-in-training.
What did you think of the reveal at the end of our story?
The island was not an accident. Poor Ollie. I want to learn more about the other families (in the attached pic)
The JLA pays a salary?!?!
The mystery of Magus is the most intriguing to me. How is he centuries of years old? How did he know where to find Ollie when went back to Queen Industries in issue 18? Why is he so elusive? How did he enter Oliver’s hallucination? - These are all great mysteries.
I liked the ex-employee, Henry Fyff - even if he is “a mess” . I hope he wasn’t truly a stalker.
This story had a cinematic feel. Good pick @MattMcDonald. The Oliver Queen stories never let me down!
