*Book source ~ Library


Green Arrow/Oliver Queen is having problems with some villains who think it’s ok to sow destruction and live stream it. Rush and his gang need to be taken down, but Green Arrow also has to deal with some kind of toxic waste monster and his lady love, Blood Rose. Will Green Arrow prevail?


I have to say that I found this parallel story ho-hum. Though the live stream of the idiots trying to kill Green Arrow was a decent idea in this day and age of technology and videos galore. I have no idea wtf is going on with the toxic thing and Blood Rose. And I find I really don’t care. Most of the art is decent but I have to say that Green Arrow looks like he’s on steroids. He’s like Oliver Queen hulked out. It’s ridiculous. I have Volume 2 from the library, so I’ll give it a go, but I’m not hopeful.
