The Part One wiki last edited by Jacquenette_Harper on 12/31/13 09:13AM View full history


The incredible creative team of writer Andy Diggle and artist Jock (THE LOSERS) rejoin to tell the definitive origin of the Emerald Archer! Oliver Queen is a frivolous playboy with little care for anyone or anything — apparently even himself. But when he's double-crossed and marooned on a desert island he finds that he does care about something... justice! 

Oliver Queen is a rich playboy. He has hired security, a man named Hackett, who takes him on thrills (trekking through the Arctic for example) but makes sure he doesn't die. Oliver is, on the advice of Hackett, investing $14,000,000 in "a luxury resort in Fiji" being built by Chien Na-Wei. At a charity event Oliver buys a Howard Hill bow. Oliver, after making a fool of himself, decides to join Hackett on the yacht to the luxury resort. While on the yacht Hackett reveals that there is no resort, and, after beating Oliver up, throws him overboard after he thinks he has killed Oliver.

It's a great point for readers to jump on to the Green Arrow bandwagon since it starts right at the beginning (no messy history to deal with). You get a feeling for just who Ollie is; a wealthy brat with t...

Good beginning to a great story. 0

I've always wanted to get into reading Green Arrow comics, but never took the time to do it. Then this series came out and I thought it'd be the perfect time to start... at the beginning.The artwork is top notch and comes off more realistic than most. Color is vivid and dark- creates a very nostalgic feeling. The writing is also up to par with the whole realism trend. (You get the feeling you're reading a comic someone put a lot of thought into)One problem I had was with the ending of this first...
