One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Arrow #4

BAD THING: Half the issue covers the same ground as Brighest Day #9, with Ollie having to stop a confused J'onn J'onzz from destroying the Star City forest. There's nothing that happens here we don't see in the other comic.

GOOD THING: After four issues, we finally have a name for the social worker who Ollie saved in the first issue: Mary. Short for Marian? Almost certainly.

The Final Verdict: A slow issue, but the fault of that lies mostly with over half of it being devoted to a redundant recap of the mini-series this book is meant to be a part of. The original material actually moves pretty well, with the mystery of the disguised assassin on the verge of being solved and Ollie getting a good action scene fighting the so-called "Royal Guard".


  1. .... Of course short for Marian... :P

  2. Well, it's a damn sight more subtle than "John Smalls" and "F. Tuckman"! XD

  3. I just want to say "I told you so" ;) Though it may not necessary be "Marian", but "Mary Ann".
