Tackled Before It Happens AGAIN

"Tackled Before It Happens AGAIN" from Green Arrow vol.6 #17 (DC, 2013) by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino
Green Arrow Week ends on a hopeful note, I think, as Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino take over the New52 book and finally make it work. The way they do it is to bring it closer to the show (Arrow), with the island holding a dark secret and Green Arrow the subject of a police manhunt. Early still, but the creative team has a strong resumé. Like I said, I'm hopeful.


  1. Hmmm...that's actually a pretty nice picture. I haven't been reading Green Arrow lately, because an Ollie without his beard just isn't Ollie...but that's some decent art.

  2. Sorrentino does some very interesting things as far as staging the action and the trick shots in this first issue. It's definitely worth a look, beard or not.

    And I wouldn't put it past Lemire to let it grow in either.

  3. Oh and Sally, you do realize what books come next after Green Arrow, alphabetically?
