Comments Green Arrow, Volume 1: The Midas Touch

  • Will M.

    I've mentioned that Green Arrow is my favorite character ever, so it's quite a shame that I've only read this one now. After reading though, all I can say is that this is the worst New 52 volume I've read as of right now. I've read a few other Green Arrow comics and I'm a huge fan of the TV show, so I have a good background of him. This volume didn't do him justice, not even one bit. He was unlikable, and more so were the supporting characters. No one will ever beat Felicity. Back to Oliver. He [...]

  • Anne

    So Green Arrow is not the best thing to come out of the New 52, but it's not the worst thing, either.It lives in the Land of Meh.As other people (Sam) have pointed out, the Billionaire Playboy/Costumed Avenger thing has already been done. And, let's face it, done better. In a world where Iron Man and Batman reign supreme, Dan Jurgens is going to have to work hard to carve out a niche for Oliver Queen. Did he manage to do it in The Midas Touch?Ehhhh. Not so much.I will say that Jurgens tried to m [...]

  • StoryTellerShannon

    It's a younger Green Arrow this time around who has his own “Batman Oracle” to help him while he deals with overpowered super villains and then a lover super villain couple. He's still alter-ego billionaire playboy, Oliver Queen, who is at odds with some of the higher ups, adding minor tension to the tales. I suppose he's something like a Bruce Wayne character in that regard.The super villains tale (who liked to post on Youtube) was more interesting than the latter one. One could certainly a [...]

  • Jesse A

    Oh I'm sorry. I seemed to have taken a wrong turn into the kids section of the New 52. This just seemed like a silly cartoon. Dumb villains, dumb story. Poor effort.

  • Brad

    Green Arrow #1Super rich superheroes who are more vigilante than hero (a DC specialty) are tough to enjoy, but their increasing willingness to break laws, to employ their riches to behave like a state with a state, to surveille, to torture, to coerce -- all illegally -- all with the breezy justification, "At least we're the good guys," is making their ilk almost unreadable for me.When Marvel pauses to consider their "privileged" heroes, it feels like there is much more criticism going on, a reco [...]

  • Sam Quixote

    Oliver Queen is a billionaire playboy by day, daring vigilante known as Green Arrow by night… hey wake up! I know, it’s kind of cliché to have the superhero be a billionaire playboy what with the far more popular Batman and Iron Man already representing that niche but look, Green Arrow’s different: he has a bow and arrow! Hmm. Ok, how to interest the reader… he puts different pieces of tech on the end of his arrows so they do different things, say an ice arrow or an airbags arrow. No? H [...]

  • Quentin Wallace

    I enjoyed my first foray into the New 52 Green Arrow series. It starts off with Green Arrow battling an "internet fight club" of supervillains who have become internet celebrities by filming their destructing acts and posting the videos online. They film a murder to draw Green Arrow out, wanting to film his murder as well. He isn't down with that plan and reacts accordingly.Then we see the duo of Midas and Blood Rose after Green Arrow (and Oliver Queen) as well in another decent story.The art is [...]

  • Evan Leach

    Not the best New 52 collection, but not the worst either. This reboot starts out slow, with Green Arrow taking on some seriously lame villains that double as wannabe Youtube stars. Meanwhile, Oliver's boss (the CEO of Queen Industries) is constantly nagging at him for not pulling his corporate weight. Neither storyline is all that interesting, although the back-and-forth behind Arrow and his helpers (Naomi and Jax) is kind of fun and the art is solid. Fortunately, things pick up in the second ha [...]

  • Robert

    Above average art and some snappy dialogue, but also some distinctly un-interesting (and in a lot of cases, redundant) secondary characters and villains.Still, gotta love the final reveal of what those canisters on Ollie's belt the whole time actually were!

  • Leo

    I should had probably started reading Green Arrow with something else. I kind of knew was I was getting into and stillMy first contact with Green Arrow was the CW tv show (which is pretty cool) therefore I always picture Stephen Amell in the role. And frankly, he's much more interesting than this one. Also, there's no Felicity Smoak in the comics. Felicity FTW!, btw. Anyway, it wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. The villains are laughable morons and the art change for the final issue was bad [...]

  • thea

    I'm not sure why people are hating on this, personally it's good to me. Sure that this wasn't really the best start but I like this one better than the flash. And I'm really excited to be able to pick up next volume next week!

  • Bookwraiths

    Not the best, not the worst GA story. I did not go into expecting anything spectacular, and I believe that helped me enjoy the (mostly) mindless violence. Have to agree Oliver is too much of a rich jerk here though.

  • Gabrielle.

    I love the tv show. Its one of my favorites to be honest, but i cant say the same of this comic.This comic was a little bored, and i was expecting for more having in count the tv show. This was a high-expectation for me, but like I say, It was really disappointing.

  • David

    It happened by accident.I had ordered a stack of Incredible Hulk back issues on Ebay. As an added bonus the seller tossed in a copy of Green Arrow: Quiver. I was just starting to get back into comics, and I had never paid any attention to DC. But, it was free and it was written by Kevin Smith. I figured I’d give it a shot.By the end of the month I had picked up every single Green Arrow trade I could get my hands on. Kevin Smith did an outstanding job bringing Oliver Queen back into the world o [...]

  • William Thomas

    Of the Nu52 books, the very best have reintroduced the characters in conjunction with well-known villains, excepting Snyder's Batman. So I have to ask- where is Merlyn and why is DC not setting him up as GA's arch-nemesis from the start?Some of these reboot books seem to be Rewriting their characters with a Marvel spin- Superman feels more like Peter Parker/ Spider-Man than he does the Man of Steel- and GA is no different. what we're getting in this book is like the early 90's Punisher, only G-r [...]

  • Renata

    UGHHH. I picked this up because I started watching the TV show Arrow and I thought I'd give the comics a try. This is vol one of the New 52 reboot so THEORETICALLY it should have been approachable to me, a first time Green Arrow comics reader, because that was like, the whole point of the New 52. But it was not. There was no explanation about who Oliver's support team is? I would have accepted a one panel text box. Where did they come from?? On the show, his Batcave friends are my favorite part. [...]

  • Travis Duke

    cheesy to say the least. The writing is pretty juvenile and the art matches. I know I should of read some Smith or jungers green arrow but I was impatient. The only story worth a damn is the blood rose part and that isnt saying much. The dialogue is silly and stupid and it probably appeals to younger teens more than anything. It reminds me of bad comics from the early 90's. Dont read it.

  • Jason

    Not to bad nice artwork, good story on internet fame and culture. Wish they ahad stuck with the old look though and not tried to mimic the tv show

  • Douglas Gibson

    This first volume makes up issues 1 through 6 of DC’s New 52 relaunch of their Emerald Archer- Green Arrow. After a disappointing slip with the first volume of New 52 Superboy, this volume puts me back on a trajectory of enjoying most of these reboots that I have read so far. Don’t press me for a lot of details on why I like this one so much, because there’s not a lot going on story-wise, but there is plenty of action in every issue. I like the simplicity of Oliver trying to run a company [...]

  • Anthony Schultz

    Green Arrow has exploded into the pop culture scene with as just much ferocity as Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye in 2012’s The Avengers. With the CW’s Arrow focusing on DC’s Emerald Archer and ebbing into its third season with the grace of a more seasoned series, fans are beginning to flock to conventions, charity events, and the comics in order to provide them with insight on one of DC Comics’ most in depth and rich characters. With DC’s reboot of their entire universe in September of 2012 [...]

  • David Caldwell

    A hero is best defined by his villains. Batman has the Joker, Superman has Lex Luthor, and the Flash has a whole gallery of Rogues. So who does Green Arrow fight? A bunch of wannabe famous people , who might or might not have superpowers(it wasn't exactly clear with some of them). Their goal is to get a lot of hits for the videos of their criminal acts that they upload. It does give Green Arrow the chance to say that people who watches these videos(or reads comic book about them maybe) just help [...]

  • Ronald

    I have often enjoyed the antics of the Green Arrow (no Not Mavels Hawkeye). I had heard good things about this reboot. But I was really disapointed in the first half of the collection. Here we see why Green Arrow is a 3rd rate super, he is fighting the Jersey Shore of 5th rate loser super villians and almost loses. Then most of these issues his biggest fight is with his employer who spends pages of text complaining that Green Arrow sucks. Not real inspiring or interesting.The 2nd half of the boo [...]

  • Michelle Cristiani

    I don't know enough about Green Arrow to know how this new-52 version fits into the rest of him, but overall I wasn't charmed. For one thing, I was surprised that he has a behind-the-scenes two man team who creates his arrows and feeds him info. With this, he's simply a guy with good aim, and not much more. I guess one of his strengths is knowing who can help him most, but it's not my cup of tea. What falls flat for me here is the lack of motivation in the story. I'm sure it's coming. But in vol [...]

  • Colin Eastaugh

    This is my first experience of the "New 52" universe and I'm surprised how well, for the most part, the reboot of a classic character has been handled. The collection is, as it should be, an introduction to the character, building the world and the cast without focusing on setting up the next arc until towards the end. Queen appears younger than his previous incarnation, giving off a thrill seeker extreme sports vibe rather than the more classic highly trained version seen previously. However, t [...]

  • Trey

    This book contains the first six issues of the New 52 Green Arrow. As with most of the New 52 I've read, it looks like the changes were made for the sake of change, not to make improvements. There are a bunch of new characters here, which means readers of the old Green Arrow are in unfamiliar territory. The lack of characterization and motivation, though, surely won't compel new readers to read more Green Arrow. What is the point of moving Oliver to Seattle instead of Star City? Probably just to [...]

  • Daryl

    I think that this was one of the missteps of DC's "New 52" relaunch. In this series, we find a younger Green Arrow, living in Seattle (as in the classic Mike Grell years). DC uses the Seattle setting to make G.A in his civilian identity of Oliver Queen, into a Steve Jobs-type electronics entrepreneur (the Q-phone, the Q-pad). He also has a couple of behind the scenes assistants, who provide him with intel while fighting, and help develop his trick arrows. Unfortunately, it's all pretty forgettab [...]

  • Nicola Mansfield

    Another Justice League member I don't know all that much about but I picked this up when the $1.99 ebook sale was on. I'm really excited about Jeff Lemire taking over this series now with Vol. 4 so am going back to get a take on him up to date. This was ok. I kind of like Green Arrow in that he's Batman-like, with his vigilante ways, no superhuman abilities and secret identity of a millionaire mogul playboy. This volume has the GA battling against two villainous teams in separate one-off stories [...]

  • A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)

    *Book source ~ LibraryGreen 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 [...]

  • Gavin

    For a kick off to a new series/volume of a familiar title, I would have expected a bit more. But this just makes it obvious to me that Green Arrow is not as big a character in the New 52 to start with as others. That's OK. That being said, this is a decent, old-school book in many ways with new school storylines. Some of the stuff is borderline boring, but it reminds me of when I was younger with the art, pure classic 80s comic look in a good way. I would be more interested in the Oliver Queen b [...]

  • Travis

    I was pleasantly surprised by this title, as pre52, Oliver Queen has been written so badly. Instead, the writers just took him back to basics and decided to remind us that Green Arrow can be a fun, cool character.Yes, there's a Tony Stark vibe to him and the corporate shenanigans are the weakest part, but the writers do a nice job of writing Ollie as a flawed man, with more money than common sense, who wants to do good things and help people.Most of the bad guys felt a bit blah, wish they'd just [...]
