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!
For all intents and purposes, this is a real life superhero story, that could very easily taken in our world. There are no freeze guns, no magic lightning bolts, no martians that can read minds. This series, in its own way, is completely seperated from the rest of the DC Universe, and it's all the better for it. Even the villains that Oliver Queen is fighting within it are just regular people.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

The mature comic strips Oliver of his trick arrows and makes him go back to basics with a longbow. What's interesting here is that Oliver is trying to fight crime on the streets of... Read morePublished 3 months ago by KBoticus
I chose this rating
Because it was interesting dark
Violent storyline I loved Grell story
The art was great intriguing
I liked it, i was a little disappointed though. Too many people told me that this was the best green arrow story of all time. Nope. Quiver, Year One
Both way better.
Though the artwork is gorgeous, it does a disservice to the color artist, Julia Lacquement, that her name is not on the cover of this re-release. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Trapper
