White-hot creator Kevin Smith, the writer/director behind such popular independent films
as Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma, as well as the writer of top-selling comics like Daredevil and Jay & Silent Bob, brings
back comicdom's classic hothead character Oliver Queen (or does he?) in GREEN ARROW — an ongoing series that will
shake up the status quo of the DC Universe. Joining Smith are master penciller Phil Hester (DETECTIVE COMICS, The
Coffin) and inker extraordinaire Ande Parks (CATWOMAN, WONDER WOMAN), with beautifully striking, painted covers
by Matt Wagner (Mage, BATMAN/GRENDEL).
When we last saw Oliver Queen, he was seconds away from meeting his doom as he clutched a ticking bomb aboard a
plummeting airplane. Until now, only Superman knew what really happened on that fateful day. But in the new GREEN
ARROW series, readers finally get a chance to uncover the truth for themselves. Many characters populating the DC Universe
are asking questions and demanding answers, including Queen's ex-lover Black Canary, his ex-partner Arsenal, and the son he
hardly knew, Connor Hawke, who followed in his father's footsteps and temporarily became Green Arrow after Queen's
"death." A certain Dark Knight from Gotham City has some questions of his own…and he may not like the answers.
With Smith's masterful characterization and eye for action, GREEN ARROW begins an exciting new chapter in the
history of the Emerald Archer.
