razzatazz's Green Arrow #121 - The Monkey's Fist review

In the world

This issue serves as the introduction of the Silver Monkey as a nemesis for Connor and one which might have been more prominent had the series not been soon headed for cancellation. The story here basically revolves around Connor attempting to reclaim Master Jansen's temple after its control has been seized from him by an opportunistic huckster. There are a couple of short critiques here, of businessmen and martial arts actors, but these do not really go anywhere save for a short punchline (and in one the punchline is more of a punch.) It does have an interesting look at the defilement of things which are pure in light of the pursuit of money. In the end though it is combat, champion against champion, to decide the control of the temple. This serves as the introduction of the Silver Monkey, and the setup is decent even if the end result is maybe not what is expected. An entertaining issue overall.
