Graphic Novel: Green Arrow - Year One
The origins of The Emerald Archer are retold in this very good graphic novel.
Oliver Queen is a Playboy Millionaire chasing thrills and over indulging in wine & women when he hears an interesting business proposition from long time associate Hackett.
Our Hero ends up marooned on a remote island and is forced to survive using his skills as an Archer.
A potential rescue uncovers whats really happening on the island and Queen must overcome his own Demons to save himself and others.
Excellent atmospheric artwork and an action packed story make this an excellent starting point for anyone with an interest in the character.
A while back there were rumours of a Green Arrow movie, lets hope that happens.
