Guess I'll talk before all the negativity shows up.

I will miss Lemire and Sorrentino...but all good things must come to an end, I'm cautiously optimistic for what the new team brings and this will stay on my pull unless it proves unsatisfactory.

Btw...is that Felicity on the cover??

Was my first thought.

Wow looks like they will introduce Felicity as GA supporting character. I don't like Naomi in GA comics. So I think Felicity can replace her. But...I am Lemire fan. So I will probably will not read GA comics. I will spend my money reading Justice League United where Lemire write great fun bromance story between Buddy and Ollie :)

she's wearing ultimate hawkeye's suit!! BOOO!

My main problem with G.A. being in Seattle now is that he got there too late to kill off the kids from "iCarly".

...is that really supposed to be Felicity?

Another book gets turned into the typical generic DC comic

Lmao no wonder Arsenal went drug user.

I like that Felicity will be out in the field with him. I will be checking this out. I'm tired of the constant complaining.

i'll give this a shot

Jeff Lemire's Green Arrow run was great it is a shame that it ended. From the looks of things it looks like all that direction will be thrown out.

I liked the last season of Arrow the next one looks a little bad but I think everyone likes the show because of the characters and action not the series direction. It makes no sense to me to bring in the producer of Arrow. It's also pretty weird considering years ago he had a critically panned run that was not memorable. And if it is because of brand recognition why are they relaunching the Arrow tv series tie in? Felicity and Diggle are also not needed for Green Arrow especially the comics even the show struggles to use them so it is strange seeing this attempt to put them in more Green Arrow stuff.

I'm sitting this out. Wasn't a big fan of Kreisberg's original run on Green Arrow.

I've heard absolutely no good about it, which is why I also won't be picking it up.

Well, these are the guys that write the Arrow tv show and they want to incorporate more of the show in to the book. Also, one of the titles for this season of Arrow is called, "Oracle".

Posted by knightofthechronicle

Green Arrow had good books before Lemire so I have no doubt he'll have them after. I'll give this run a shot, but I will still miss Lemire though...

Posted by TommytheHitman

I hope they don't make this exactly like the show. Although I like the show a lot I don't want them to pull a Marvel and just change everything for the Movies/TV shows that are popular at the moment.

Oh F@#K this it's going to become Arrow New 52 isn't it?

EDIT: Also is that supposed to be Feilicity, not big fan of her...

Ditto.

Might skim in trade at the bookstore. If it's not as good as Lemire, I'll not buy into it.

Edited by viin

I really wish lemire and sorrentinos run was not cut short...otherwise the cover art looks good and im all for introducing Felicity into the comics but if that is Felicity why is she wearing a jump suit thing?

Artemis Maybe

Posted by timelord

I hope they keep Ekimo around such a great character. I get they have to ditch for the first arc or so but later on down the line bring her back.

Edited by MarcosVergara14

Yep it's Arrow New 52

Posted by redwingx

I think everyone should give the first issue a shot atleast. Green Arrow deserves that much guys.

Edited by Xwraith

I'm considering dropping Arrow in protest of this.

Kreisberg's run wasn't terrible, but it wasn't memorable either. I will say this it was better than the JT Krul run that directly followed it. I'm not dropping this book out of protest. The New 52 Ollie is not my Ollie. I just jumped on because I'm a longtime Lemire fan and was digging Sorrentino's work on I,Vampire. I hope whoever continues buying the book enjoys it.

It was actually the TV show I was talking about, because I'm certain they cut Lemire's magnificent story short to make the comic more like it.

@marcosvergara14: is that Merlyn

Yes that's suppose to be him, call me a purist but i don't want Arrow as the current version of Oliver.

@xwraith: Yeah, Lemire claims 20 issues is all he had in mind but I dont think I buy it. But I'm not sure I buy DC cutting his run short either. His exclusive contract is up and he has a lot of new work coming. Something had to go and he just started JLU. Which he says he may not be writing after issue #12.

Posted by Xwraith

@longbowhunter: Didn't he say last year that he planned to write the book for 2-3 years?

I really don't see why people would get up in arms over Felicity being brought into the comics. Fan seems to love her in Arrow, so it would only make sense that they would want to expand on the character by bringing her into comic canon.

Personally I like the idea of Arrow mixing in with the comic world, as I personal love the show and feel that the comic could do what the show currently can't, due to budgets and whatnot.

Posted by morrigan_2575

I only started reading GA because of Arrow and Lemiere I loved Lemiere's work so much that I plan to by his Justice League title just so I can keep reading his stuff.

I'm curious enough about what they're doing to keep reading (for now).

He did. But I think its a case of him changing his mind, not DC changing their's. Not every writer leaves DC in a fit of rage. I think he's just ready to get out from under their thumb.

You just said the reason yourself, mixing Arrow in with the comic world. Consider the fact that of the 23K fans of Green Arrow who were buying the book only a small amount likes Arrow the majority of the hardcore fans hate what the writers did to Black Canary, Ted Grant, Count Vertigo, Mia Deardeen and many more. If the TV show fans really read the comics, Arrow digital comic wouldn't have been cancelled.

@marcosvergara14:

Sure looks alike Arrow because Felicity. But Harley Quinn was also only Cartoon only character and now she is comic characters as well. For good side, we might get an Oracle character and maybe a reform of Team Arrow. But the bad side is that they could change the direction of tittle again like Black Canary start to date Green Arrow for the first time on N52 but continue with PN52´s incarnation of couple. Green Arrow becoming like Batman Arrow.

@marcosvergara14:

There nothing wrong with Canary, she is very alike PN52 Black Canary. Sure Laurel wasnt great but until Season 3, Sarah was Black Canary, Laurel were just a easter egg character.

Hahahaahahaha. As awesome as Arrow is, keep it out of Green Arrow.

@vitalius: Frlicity was basically a carbon copy of what the CW did with Chloe Sullivan.

And the name Oracle comes with the obligatory lost of something, in the case of Barbara she was crippled and she decided she wanted to help in any way she could she even founded a team herself, all of this from a wheelchair. Chloe saw her boyfriend killed, her cousin dissapear and Clark leaving her alone. She found herself with no other posiblity but take an active role as the Watchtower to do the things no one could do for her. Felicity hasn't endured half of wath they suffered to gain the name.
