The new Count Vertigo isn't the only somewhat familiar figure that Jeff Lemire has brought back from comic book limbo to torment Oliver Queen. This issue also brings about the return of a familiar female assassin, whose approach had already been heavily hinted at. Though her relationship to Oliver this time around proves quite different, it is just as complicated as before. More surprising is the first appearance of a Seattle crime boss named Billy Tockman - a name Arrowheads will recognize as that of the original Clock King.
As always, Andrea Sorrentino's artwork is excellent. Indeed, it would be reason enough to buy this book even if Jeff Lemire's scripts weren't equally amazing. This is one of the best books on the market today and a must-read for all fans of low-powered superheroics as well as The Emerald Archer himself. Green Arrow hasn't been this good in years!
