Ich muss gestehen, dass ich in Sachen Comics ein Neuling bin und mit Green Arrow auf Grund der TV Serie Arrow angefangen habe.
An diesem Band gefällt mir alles, habe auf Grund der Rezessionen tatsächlich 2&3 übersprungen, und dieser Band "got me hooked".
Tolle Zeichnungen, tolle Charaktere und der Plot, sehr sehr spannend, kann fast genauso wenig auf den nächsten Band warten wie auf die nächste Staffel.

Am besten einfach die ersten 3 Trade ausblenden. Jeff Lemire ist ein Gott und hat es mit diesem Band wieder bewiesen! Der neue Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow ist fesselnd und spannend! Zuschlagen! Man kann diesen Band auch problemlos ohne die ersten Trades lesen (sollte man sogar, denn diese sind Mist!)

The New 52 Green Arrow Done Right 25. März 2014
Von Anarchy in the US - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When Green Arrow was first created, he was a knock-off of Batman. He had the Arrow-Cave, Arrow-Car, and numerous arrow-themed equipment. It wasn't until writer Dennis O'Neil and Artist Neil Adams in the 1970s turned around and made him into an older, working class social hero, who stood up for the little guys in America. This new alliteration of the character has become the most popular and most established version yet to this day. But around 2011, DC rebooted their whole character lines for the New 52. Our beloved Oliver Queen who we all recognized for 40 years was reverted to a early-to-mid twenties playboy hero, and although I didn't mind it, it just did not work out from the company and fans outlooks. Numerous creative teams shuffled in for awhile and still nothing worked. Until Ann Nocenti had a decent amount of time on the title that lasted volumes 2 and 3 and that REALLY didn't work. Who can step up and change Green Arrow into the character he was supposed to be from the start of the New 52 that was fresh and different from past versions and readers can get behind? Answer: Jeff Lemire.

Jeff Lemire has become one of the hottest writers in the New 52 and comic world, with his work on Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E, and numerous other works in Vertigo like Sweet Tooth and Trillium. And now Lemire gets his hands on Green Arrow with I, Vampire artist Andrea Sorrentino to make a very new series new and old readers on the character can jump on.

GREEN ARROW VOL.4: THE KILL MACHINE collects issues #17 - #24 and Green Arrow #23.1. Issues 17 - 21 make up the "Kill Machine" arc, issues 22-23 the "Shado" arc, and issues #23.1 and 24 is the origin of a super villain I do not want to spoil.

Oliver Queen's company is going under and Oliver wants to know why by the company's boss and Oliver's friend, Emerson. Emerson leaves some vague information that the company is collapsing for a reason, in that everything in Oliver's life has some design around it from his dead father, Robert Queen. And just when Oliver is to push Emerson's vague statement, Emerson gets assassinated right in front of Oliver and Oliver gets framed for the death. Now wanted from the law, Oliver's world is crashing down around him and a new mysterious archer named Komodo is in town to dispose of Oliver, he's going to find his entire life is a lie and will need to start over again and find the truth of just what is going on.

Starting at issue #17, Lemire makes the bold (and highly preferred) choice of wiping all past 17 issues out the door. This makes Lemire's GA a true reboot for the New 52 Oliver Queen that new and old readers can jump on from the start without having to know what happened prior. There are a few nods to GA knowing the Justice League (and Justice League of America) and some other little nods to what he's done in other comics, but nothing will sidetrack you. This is a reboot so any and all readers who want to try out Green Arrow can do so.

Lemire makes this series way more grittier, with hints of espionage, mystery, twist and turns, and action in-between by stripping GA down to nothing. He's on the run from a much superior archer Komodo, his whole life is a lie, and he has to get out of Starling City and find his true path and birthright from a conspiracy that will lead into a war for Starling City and against a secret society that are similar to Oliver. This makes the new direction of GA under Jeff Lemire a refreshing thing. One that should have been from the start of the New 52. It completely makes GA a new mythology like never before that old fans might want to try out.

Art is solely provided by I, Vampire fame Andrea Sorrentino and helps to convey the new world GA is in. I loved Sorrentino's art for I, Vampire because it's utterly dark and gritty, and although it took me some time to adjust to his work a bit for GA, I think it matches the tone perfectly. Some stunning black-and-white freeze-frames, to some of the most gorgeous splash pages you'll see when Oliver runs into one of his oldest villains redone in the New 52 that I find quite menacing. 9 issues and Sorrentino does each one. It is amazing to see that in this world full of fill-in artist.

If there is any flaws is the initial setup of how Oliver gets framed. It's pretty dull to see Emerson get killed by a pierced arrow in his back, get pulled out of a glass window on a skyscraper and everyone just assumes Oliver did that much collateral damage with his barehands? Don't you think police forensics would of figured that part out? I know it's to push the plot forward, but I find though setup a little poorly done there, Lemire. And Sorrentino's art is bleak. Some times characters can look alike and get slightly confusing from his art style.

But considering 17 issues of where Green Arrow was before in the New 52, GREEN ARROW VOL.4: THE KILL MACHINE is a whole new ball game. This is what Green Arrow should have been from the start. A fresh new take allows for a new mythology with noir and grit, some good scenes, lovely art from Sorrentino, and plenty of issues for the buck. Sure, Ollie's frame up with poorly done, but this is so much better then before. If you're a fan of Green Arrow and ashamed of it before, give this a try. And new readers are welcomed to join along. Things are going to get real interesting when Ollie finally goes back to the island in Green Arrow Vol. 5: The Outsiders War (The New 52) (The New 52: Green Arrow).

Shows you what a great writer can do with a character...the best of the new 52 25. März 2014
Von J. A Magill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having been recently pained by being forced to describe one of my all-time favorite writers take on one of my all-time favorite DC teams as “all that could go wrong with the New 52, Jeff Lemire’s captivating take on Green Arrow might (just might!) make me reconsider my views on the entire relaunch enterprise. Here is a writer whose work just drips with so pathos, drama, and storytelling talent that the volume is almost impossible to put down. Like others, I’ve only read a bit of the first 16 issues of the Green Arrow relaunch and found little to impress. Lemire locates the beating heart at the center of Oliver Queen -- a character in a way always trying to find himself and his purpose – and shows a great deal of humility in borrowing generously from the popular (and fun!) television adaption, Arrow, pulling some of the best bits into his story. One can also detect his appreciation of Kevin Smith’s excellent take on Green Arrow of some years ago. Yet it is what Lemire brings as new that really makes this book sing.

Lemire digs deep in order to broaden and deepen the Green Arrow mythos. A whole new back story threat fits neatly into all that has gone before and yet also changes everything. Also in the spirit of the New 52, Lemire revisits some old (and perhaps tired) villains breathing life into their stories and motivations. Not to give too much away, this certainly isn’t your dad’s Count Vertigo. Lemire also impressively recognizes that Green Arrow’s success depends on how interesting he can make its title character; in the finest tradition of cold hearted writers, he shows an excellent willingness to explode his character’s entire life in order to reveal his true motivations.

My praise of this book would be incomplete if I failed to mention the wonderful artwork of Andrea Sorrentino. Lemire’s script is emotionally heavy and packed with action, yet this could all land with a thud if brushed by an average artist. Sorrentino’s work proves that she is anything but. Remembering that Green Arrow isn’t superpowered (and here is returned to his youth), Sorrentino gives the reader page after page of emotional intensity and fluid action. We see the surprise in Oliver’s eyes when he feels surprise. We recognize his pain and his doubt in Sorrentino’s sharp lines. Look no further than the cover to see her gifts. Just extraordinary.

To answer a question sure to come, yes, if you’ve picked up not a single issue of Green Arrow before, you can certainly start here. I found myself with a few questions, but Lemire made sure to answer them as he moved the story along, all without slowing down. As for me, I can tell you that I won’t be missing another of his issues. Yes, it really is that good.

Awful writing 29. März 2014
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Why’s it so hard to make Green Arrow good? His counterpart, Hawkeye, over at Marvel has the best series ever but Green Arrow continues to stink up the New 52 like a month old dead dingo.

This new run on the character, this time with one of DC’s “best” writers (more on that later), Jeff Lemire, has Oliver Queen visit the head of Queen Industries who’s an old friend of his father’s. A heated argument over who controls what ends with the old friend being shot through a window by an arrow, then dragged off the building and Ollie being accused of his murder.

Right away this story screams stupid – if a projectile weapon somehow manages to get through plate glass and kill someone, the glass is going to be on the floor of the office, right? Which is of course the case here. But the guards run in, see the mess and instantly accuse Ollie of the murder when, after just a few brief moments of thought, they could’ve determined otherwise. But no, this is now unfortunately the main plot of this book.

Ollie has to fight a dark archer called Komodo (like the dragon – so you know he’s evil, because dragons are evil, get it?) and bizarrely, Komodo’s daughter as well, who, despite being 10, manages to kick Ollie’s ass up and down the place (this is why the Justice League didn’t want him!). There’s some mystery over the island where Ollie became Green Arrow – it always comes back to the island for this guy doesn’t it? – and some guy with X’s for eyes called Magus is on a magical mystery tour.

Ollie and Komodo battle numerous times in the first half of the book until Ollie nearly kills him by stabbing him in the eye with an arrow. Didn’t a king die in the Battle of Hastings that way 1000 years ago? So Ollie basically tries to murder his enemy, which isn’t the most heroic move – he’s lucky he didn’t die!

I’m going to have to revise this assessment that Jeff Lemire’s a good writer because of his work on this book. His writing is what made me abandon the book halfway through. After Komodo’s beaten, Ollie heads to Black Mesa, Arizona. Here’s the actual dialogue from that page which I wrote down because it is the worst expositional writing I’ve read all year:

“So tell me again, Ollie, why you have to drive all the way out to the middle of nowhere, alone, while you’re still recovering from injuries that would keep most men in a hospital bed for a month?”

“The Magus told me to go to Black Mesa if I wanted answers”

“The creepy guy with no eyes is your only lead?”

“At this point, yes. and, while I don’t completely trust him, he does seem to … know things. And if what Komodo said is true… if he really did kill my dad … well, this is something I need to do alone. and I need to know what the hell they were doing on the island together all those years ago.”

Ouch.

I can’t remember the last time I read such clunky dialogue. “Here’s a summary of the story so far AND an explanation for my motivations, idiots!”.

This was followed up by a redneck Arizona sheriff hassling Ollie (“’choo doin’ out here, boy?” etc.) and I gave up. Crappy writing and stereotypical characters are a powerful one-two punch to end any reader’s relationship with a book.

Andrea Sorrentino’s art isn’t bad but nothing very special. It’s not done in the DC house style which is definitely a plus and I did like the way the hallucinatory sequences were rendered, and even some of the action is pretty decent, but the art isn’t enough to save this book.

Lemire has written some good books, though none at DC, and his Green Arrow is just plain terrible. I could’ve either stuck with it and read another 100 pages of this trash or put it aside for good and read something worthwhile – I chose the latter.

Cue comments like “But dude it gets WAYYY better in the second half - you should've stuck with it!” which are never true. Or my favourite - "if you didn't finish it, you can't review it!".

it's not easy to make green arrow an interesting character, but this story treads some interesting new ground. This has the potential to be something special.
Lemire Starts off Right 5. Oktober 2014
Von Nicola Mansfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Jeff Lemire's run on Green Arrow starts off fresh, previous volumes needn't be read. As the book begins we are at a point in time where Green Arrow is already a member of the JLA. I haven't read the volume where that happens yet so am not sure exactly where in time we are. This book takes place in its present but also has a lot of flashbacks. Lemire's Green Arrow is a much more darker man and the plot is being set up in this volume, involving Oliver's father and a mysterious cult or clan of the Dragons. Some new characters have been invented for this issue and a few old ones come back into play for the The New 52 such as Count Vertigo. Vertigo has an issue devoted to himself which deals with his background story, that I enjoyed so much. I love villain background stories! The book ends on an interesting note and the plot is set up and has one interested to keep reading the story. The art is fantastic and perfectly suits the mood and darker atmosphere of this volume. Overall, though, I wouldn't say this was better than the first three volumes, just different, but certainly in a good way.
