When Green Arrow was first created, he was a knock-off of Batman. He had the Arrow-Cave, Arrow-Car, and numerous arrow-themed equipment. It wasn't until writer Dennis O'Neil and Artist Neil Adams in the 1970s turned around and made him into an older, working class social hero, who stood up for the little guys in America. This new alliteration of the character has become the most popular and most established version yet to this day. But around 2011, DC rebooted their whole character lines for the New 52. Our beloved Oliver Queen who we all recognized for 40 years was reverted to a early-to-mid twenties playboy hero, and although I didn't mind it, it just did not work out from the company and fans outlooks. Numerous creative teams shuffled in for awhile and still nothing worked. Until Ann Nocenti had a decent amount of time on the title that lasted volumes 2 and 3 and that REALLY didn't work. Who can step up and change Green Arrow into the character he was supposed to be from the start of the New 52 that was fresh and different from past versions and readers can get behind? Answer: Jeff Lemire.

Jeff Lemire has become one of the hottest writers in the New 52 and comic world, with his work on Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E, and numerous other works in Vertigo like Sweet Tooth and Trillium. And now Lemire gets his hands on Green Arrow with I, Vampire artist Andrea Sorrentino to make a very new series new and old readers on the character can jump on.

GREEN ARROW VOL.4: THE KILL MACHINE collects issues #17 - #24 and Green Arrow #23.1. Issues 17 - 21 make up the "Kill Machine" arc, issues 22-23 the "Shado" arc, and issues #23.1 and 24 is the origin of a super villain I do not want to spoil.

Having been recently pained by being forced to describe one of my all-time favorite writers take on one of my all-time favorite DC teams as “all that could go wrong with the New 52, Jeff Lemire’s captivating take on Green Arrow might (just might!) make me reconsider my views on the entire relaunch enterprise. Here is a writer whose work just drips with so pathos, drama, and storytelling talent that the volume is almost impossible to put down. Like others, I’ve only read a bit of the first 16 issues of the Green Arrow relaunch and found little to impress. Lemire locates the beating heart at the center of Oliver Queen -- a character in a way always trying to find himself and his purpose – and shows a great deal of humility in borrowing generously from the popular (and fun!) television adaption, Arrow, pulling some of the best bits into his story. One can also detect his appreciation of Kevin Smith’s excellent take on Green Arrow of some years ago. Yet it is what Lemire brings as new that really makes this book sing.

Lemire digs deep in order to broaden and deepen the Green Arrow mythos. A whole new back story threat fits neatly into all that has gone before and yet also changes everything. Also in the spirit of the New 52, Lemire revisits some old (and perhaps tired) villains breathing life into their stories and motivations. Not to give too much away, this certainly isn’t your dad’s Count Vertigo. Lemire also impressively recognizes that Green Arrow’s success depends on how interesting he can make its title character; in the finest tradition of cold hearted writers, he shows an excellent willingness to explode his character’s entire life in order to reveal his true motivations.

I bought this on the very fact that I started the outsider's war on its own, before reading any of the other green arrow. For anybody interested in the green arrow, this just as good as any point of starting. The collections of stories in hear move very well into one and the next, not only having a novel fee with a great 3 act and a major plus for the the payoff at the end.

The story starts with Oliver Queen (green arrow) in the midst of his hero career being chastised for being out of reality and a little irresponsible and just as quickly is his whole world is turned upside down. Throughout the story, Oliver begins to uncover a whole part of his history and what has been taken place as he has became a hero. With each step of becoming the Green Arrow, he learns that is much much closer to his destiny then what he could even imagine. Along the way, Green Arrow faces the mind busting Count Vertigo who is even spotlighted, in this collection, in his own sinister secret origin story from the Forever Evil month .

This is a large collection of stories for a trade paperback and makes for a great time to spend reading the story. This might make it a long, buts its bangs from your bucks. For whenever the story does get long, you can always appreciate Italian comic artist Andrea Sorrentino's art, who draws some magical spreads together and keeps a really good flow. I mean he is one of the few artist who can actually keep drawing constant face through each panels, unlike other comic artist.

Well anyways I highly recommend this not only because it's worth the price and great art, but also to move to the next chapter which is the outsider's war, which basically for some the reason is worth read.
