Hey everyone I'm new to Comicvine and would love your help. I got into comics a few years ago thanks to the New 52 and have been following Green Arrow since Lemire took over in issue #17. Since then I've rewatched parts of JLU and started Young Justice and I love GA in both those shows. So I'm looking for a good Green Arrow story that's easy to jump into without too much GA knowledge and I've heard good things bout Year One. So what do you guys think? Worth getting? Also if you have any other recommendations of similar titles I'm more than open. Thanks!
Year One is great. Longbow Hunters as well. It looks like DC are releasing Mike Grells run into Trade Papaerback starting in November too which I'm excited about. Heard great things about Kevin Smiths run also, Quiver, just never been able to get my hands on it. I hope you watch Arrow :)
@squalleon @greenarrow4924 @the_tree @paul2814 Just finished Year One and you're all completely correct (not that I ever doubted you). What an awesome comic! Perfectly paced, well characterized, and Jock's art was astounding. I really wish Diggle's run lasted longer cause he seems to really get Green Arrow and what makes him tick. So now I should check out Longbow Hunters? and the CW show is good?
@squalleon Alright I guess I gotta download Longbow Hunters then. I just started Irredeemable and am a quarter way through Sandman so it might be a while before I actually get to it though. Ya I heard the show got pretty good after a rough couple of early episodes. I'm definitely intrigued by them adding Barry Allen next season
@hausmanjm92: I love Arrow. If you like Green Arrow and enjoyed the Dark Knight trilogy then you should like it. Season 2 is really promising. The DVD/BluRay for Season 1 is out in September. Of course, you can always download each episode.
@hausmanjm92: Glad you enjoyed it! Green Arrow Year One is in my top 20 favorite comics. Yeah I love Green Arrow so I love the tv show, Arrow, as well. I think you should check it out if you like the character! Be warned, sometimes it gets too soap-opera-like.
