If you’ve been following my and Alex’s weekly DC reviews, you’ll note that we’ve been particularly impressed with the current volume of Green Arrow, which has returned the character to his O’Neil & Adams/Grell hard left leanings, an intriguing mythology surrounding Seattle (now known as Star City) and some gorgeous art by way of Otto Schmidt and Juan Ferreyra.
With the upcoming Issue #26, out July 5th, Oliver hits the road in a return to his “hard traveling” days in a team up with the Flash. Additionally, this issue sees series writer Ben Percy re-teaming with artist Stephen Byrne for this exciting chapter in Oliver’s race to defeat The Ninth Circle. Mike Grell himself provides the variant cover for this issue.
“HARD TRAVELING HERO” part one! Unwilling to let another city suffer the same fate as Seattle, Green Arrow kicks off a new quest to hunt down the Ninth Circle across America! To stop disaster before it can happen, the (in)famously hot-headed Oliver Queen must mend fences with those he’s alienated in the past, starting with THE FLASH! The second epic year of GREEN ARROW REBIRTH begins here!
And just as a bonus, here’s Jamal Campbell’s work in progress pages for the subsequent issue #27, which adds Wonder Woman to the mix!
