Rumble in the forest.
Issue 5 of the Green Arrow series.
The Story:We start with Ollie jumping in the appartement were Mary was about to get killed by the assassinated by Nyx.After jumping into the streets Nyx kills a person and Ollie thinks if he puts him in the magic water to bring him back.Gallahad says that it wont work on dead people and only on people that are hurt or dying.When Ollie puts him in the water he see's Deathstorm holding the White Lantern and saying they need to find the choosen one.Also civilians come back to life as Black Lanterns,including Robert Queen.Ollie and Galahad retreat back to the White Lantern tree and after sending the dead civilian from earlier into the tree our heroes find out they need to use the tree to defeat them.So Ollie uses makeshift arrows from the tree and Galahad was throwing them into the tree.When Robert gets close to Ollie and shows him traumatic scenes from his childhood but still was able to get his life together.After sending him into the tree Ollie decide's to face his future head first and wil confront the Queen.
The Good:We see how the past influenced Ollie in major ways and how he it influences the man he is today.Also the inclusion of Nyx as a possible consistent villain for Ollie is great since he doesn't have that many of his own villains.Also I cannot wait to see the confrontation between the our hero and villain wil have the next issue. As always Diogenes's art is spectacular as always.
The Bad:I taught that Ollie being able to adjust so quickly to a new arrow was kinda lame and I would have wanted to see him struggle some more.But it's only a nitpick.
The Verdict:This issue was great,awesome art,great fight scene and this was great preparitions for the next issue.This is a buy.
