I'm really looking forward to this. My last issue was the Future's End tie in which served as a good epilogue for Lemire's run. I stuck through the first teams for the book solely because I believed in it and I was not disappointed when we got Lemire and Sorrentino. One of the best teams ever and Sorrentino really earned my respect because I was a little put off at first by his unique art style, but by the second issue I really started to understand the depth of it and it went perfectly with Lemire's tone. The two were so good that once I heard they were leaving I was actually at unease about the next team. Sure, some teams will be better than other, but if they can keep up the quality and continue the story, I'm all for it. But once the previews came out and I saw that not only was Emiko not a part of it - but that they sent her away off screen - I decided to drop the book and end it on a high note. If ever things would start to look more like continuing the story I would come back, and the interviews and the 8 page preview and this make me glad to have Green Arrow back. I don't know if it'll be as good as Lemire and Sorrentino - I mean, come on, it's hard to live up to them - just the fact they are honoring their mythos is a win in my book. I really wish them the best of luck.

@dan12456: Maybe Hypertime's involved. Perhaps another Thawne was sent from an alternate timeline to take the place of the one here and still fills out the role needed to get them to that point.

@dan12456: There is a second season coming, you know. A whole season where we can obtain reasoning for why they were all still there and what this means for the timestream and the multiverse.

@shadowstare: You do realize he is one of the co-showrunners of Arrow since the start, right?

@xwraith: I didn't buy the first release either. I've been waiting for this extended one to be released when it was first announced last year.

@fuzzylittlerodent: In what way did I criticize your opinion? I said you can have yours and then gave my own. Did I ever state that my opinion is the unquestionable truth? No, I did not. That was you putting words in my mouth. I just said that he is an amazing artist. And plenty others do as well. His art is praised through the roof in reviews by reviewers and casual fans. It is an unfortunate thing, but there are always a few haters for a beloved thing and a few lovers for a hated thing. No one thing is truly loved or despised by all. In the case of Capullo, the majority seem to think he is brilliant since his art has been praised as one of the strongest parts of his run with Snyder. That is not me stating him being a great artist is an unquestionable truth, just that a vast majority do love his work. You can have your opinion that he is awful, but there are plenty that love him. He would not have been on the book this long with such high reviews otherwise. There will be some who do not like it and you may keep that opinion.

And if you think the "Yes, you are" is my criticizing your opinion, then you truly never have been criticized before. That was a partial joke based on what you said and the fact you are the only one I have ever seen state such a thing. My apologies if the joke was in bad taste, but you did not have to try to make my comment seem like an "unquestionable truth" when I never stated that it was. If it was unquestionable, then I would not have recognized you as someone hating it. There. If my "Yes, you are" hurt you in some fashion, then you have balanced the tables with you making me seem like an all mighty all arrogant jerk.

The General Reaction from readers, when writers in comic books try pretty much anything new.......

I'm actually fine with change. I enjoy embracing new stories.

I can't be the only one who hates Capullo's art.....

Yes, you are. You can have your opinion, but Capullo is an amazing artist!

@superior_prime_maybe: @holylouie: It is canon. It spins out of other titles and will have ramifications in the Marvel Universe just as DC's The Killing Joke did. You can read it here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=54312
