With all of the hype surrounding filmmaker Kevin "Clerks" Smith's revamp of Green Arrow, I decided to give Mike Grell's classic a try.
WOW.
Every comic fan should read this. The story concerns itself with the aging Oliver Queen, A.K.A. Green Arrow, a Super-Hero/Vigilante. He and his lover, Dinah Lance, the heroine known as Black Canary, have relocated to Seattle, and soon find themselves getting involved with Serial Killers, Drug Smugglers, and a Japanese assassin known as Shado. To say any more would be to do potential readers a great injustice. There are some truly stunning moments....

Grell's art is fantastic, as is his writing; the only thing keeping this book from perfection is a handful of double page spreads that didn't (at first glance) LOOK like double page spreads; I found myself reading the left-hand page from top to bottom, then realizing I was meant to read both pages across....the art just wasn't drawing my eyes where they were meant to be. But that's a small beef. Let's hope DC Comics collects some more of Grell's Green Arrow stories. I know I'd buy them!

If you can find this graphic novel, get it! I have no idea why Amazon lists it with "Horror Fiction." It's nothing of the sort. Green Arrow, the modern-day Robin Hood superhero, is confronted by a series of gristly murders in Seattle, and his investigation leads him into a web of intrigue involving the Japanese mafia and illegal CIA money laundering. Grell's writing and artwork are simply amazing, but be warned: This isn't a children's funnybook. It's written for mature, intelligent readers. With Green Arrow's 60th anniversary coming up, DC really needs to reprint this epic book!

Format: Paperback
Longbow Hunters forever changed the US comic book industry with its graphic novel format. With the series' mature, sophisticated and finite story arc, comic books finally gained a level of much needed credibility and acceptance from the public as well as the media. With landmark projects such as The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen, DC Comics drastically altered the landscape of presenting costumed heroes with their simplistic banal stories but it is Mike Grell's masterpiece that set the professional standards. To this day, no project of this magnitude has been able to reach or surpass its artistic level and excellence in storytelling.

Since his first appearance in 1941, Green Arrow was considered nothing more than a second rate Batman with his trick arrows and an alter ego which quite resembled Gotham City's most famous philanthropist. Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams classic Green Lantern/Green Arrow stories brought a certain depth to the character with their alterations that heightened his popularity but it is Mike Grell who was able to launch off the Emerald Archer's first ongoing title. Perhaps Mike Grell's name may sound unfamiliar to new and younger comic book readers but his work on DC's Warlord & Jon Sable, Freelance (published by First Comics) had already garnered him a strong fan base way before Longbow Hunters solidified his reputation as a stellar writer and outstanding artist. Grell also pencilled the third Green Lantern/Green Arrow series back in 1976 with writer Dennis O'Neil. For all the faults that fans may bestow upon Bill Jemas and Joe Quesada, the decision to bring Mike Grell aboard the Iron Man series is nothing short of genial. The return of this prolific creator to mainstream comics will benefit the industry but even more so for Marvel and fans of ol' Shell Head.

Format: Paperback
Mike Grell brings Olliver Queen (Green Arrow) back to his basic roots in this book. Green Arrow is not an easy character to write. Throughout his 50-60 year history, many attempts have failed - either too fancy or too sci/fi. The most memorable run seems to be Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams run during the 1970s during the "Relevance" period (in Green Lantern/Green Arrow). However, that era mixed Ollie in with too much sci-fi still - e.g. confrontations with the Guardians of Oa!!!
Mike Grell here strips Ollie down to reality. In fact, the book doesn't read like a superhero book at all. Ollie and Dinah (Black Canary) moves to Seattle (a real city unlike the fictional Star City or Gotham or Metropolis) and opens a flower shop (the aptly named Sherwood Florist). Then Dinah gets captured and tortured - she loses her Canary Cry and her ability to have children after this event. Ollie goes on a rampage against the bad guys - showing his new form as an "urban hunter". And he meets up with Shado, a mysterious female archer, for the first time.
This book marks the beginning of a largely successful run of Green Arrow stories (mostly by Grell with other artists). However, looking back at it now, I think the book at times tries too hard to fit into the "grim-'n-gritty" mood so prevalent during the late 1980s (as a result of "Dark Knight Returns" and "Watchmen"). Lots of cruel violence, killings and some brief nudity.

[...]FIRST, I just picked up a long overdue re-release of "Longbow Hunters," and am so happy it's back in my collection. I first picked up this mini-series when I was in high school (1989). A couple of things have changed since I first followed this groundbreaking series: 1) I've grown up. 2) I put in four years in Seattle, so I have a much better perspective of the story's locale.
Needless to say, going back to this story now, I developed an all new appreciation for Mike Grell's work. Ever since Denny O'Neill & Neal Adams breathed new life into the Emerald Archer 30 years ago by teaming him up with Green Lantern, Oliver Queen has made it clear that he is here to tackle real issues, albeit in a green costume with trick arrows. In "Longbow Hunters," gone are the boxing glove arrows, and people get hurt and might not make it home that night, if ever. I recommend this to anyone who incorrectly assumes that comics are just kids stuff. Beautiful art, and fantastic story.
SECOND, Kevin Smith HAS heeded the call, and has done an incredible job making GREEN ARROW currently the number one bestselling comic for DC Comics. Anybody who considers themselves a Green Arrow fan has to already be all over this, plus those who considers themselves DC loyalists have to pick up this title. Thanks, Kevin!
[...]Kevin Smith, are you listening? Give DC a call, and let's resurrect the title in a grand fashion. And I think it can be done with Oliver Queen AND Connor Hawke. BRING BACK THE ARROW!"
