I need to get some comics starring my boy Ollie Queen. So what do y’all recommend as a starting point?
For you, I’d recommend this, because I know you’re also a GL fan!
My favorite is this one:
I think the Jeff Lemire run blended the comic book and tv version perfectly.
(and that makes me want to go read it now)
Justice League of America (2013)
It is a sequel to the Green Arrow/Green Lantern crossovers.
It doesn’t get better than the Green Lantern/Green Arrow comics linked above, but you might want to check out More Fun Comics #73 to get a feel for classic Green Arrow before you go into Denny O’Neil’s reinvention of the character.
And you can also take a moment to read the introduction of his redesign:
I absolutely loved Mike Grell’s run. Start with The Longbow Hunters and then hit the regular series.
@TravisMorgan do you have an opinion on this matter?
I completely agree with your selections. Mike Grell’s The Longbow Hunters and his ongoing run are my favorite Green Arrow stories.
I would also add the four issue miniseries The Wonder Year (also by Mike Grell).
And Year One by Andy Diggle and Jock.
And seek out Shado: Song of the Dragon (by Mike Grell) which is not on DCUI.
I prefer the mike grell interpretation. I also like the mike grell interpretation of black canary with no powers which is the same as the golden age black canary with no powers. In tv, I heard black canary uses a sonic gadget. I usually avoid the tv shows and movies bec they tend to differ a lot from the comics.
