Why Does This Keep Happening to Green Arrow?

"Why Does This Keep Happening to Green Arrow?" from Green Arrow vol.5 #2 (DC, 2010) by J.T. Krul, Diogenes Neves and Vicente Cifuentes
Green Arrow - most killed superhero of the modern age? It just seems like a big joke, especially in the wake of Blackest Night/Brightest Day which was all about revolving door between life and death in superhero comics. It's a shame Krul doesn't write with a more obvious sense of humor, because the idea of making Star City a sort of city-state with its own star-shaped Sherwood Forest is whimsical nonsense. Played straight, it just comes off as nonsense.
