Green Arrow may be trapped on an island in the middle of the nowhere (again), but at least this time he isn’t alone. Green Arrow #8 begins a new story arc with Ollie, Dinah, and Diggle on a deserted island (which it turns out isn’t exactly deserted).
While Diggle is taken prisoner by a mechanical bear and dragged to underground lair, Ollie and Dinah reconnect and, thanks to their picturesque surroundings, are given the opportunity to have the kind of vacation neither hero would ever likely agree to. As to just who, and what, are on the island with them, we’ll have to await and see as “Island of Scars” plays out. Now that our heroes are back together, and have finished their brief respite, it’s time to get back to work.
Green Arrow #8 also marks a change in the artistic duties of the book as Otto Schmidt takes over. If one issue is any indication, Schmidt is the right man for the job (particularly for how he draws Black Canary). I’m hoping he sticks around for many issues to come. Worth a look.
