  • I honestly don't even know what was going on in half the issue
  • Unfortunately, Discord had none of it and killed him
  • It's an interesting area to explore and does seem to work pretty well with Ollie, considering what is going on in the Justice League titles where they want to take a more proactive approach, this makes sense and considering that he fights crime with arrows, it's a surprise he hasn't killed anyone yet period
  • If the panels had been more coherently put together, I may've enjoyed it

      This issue is chaotic to say the least. I honestly don’t even know what was going on in half the issue. Everything gets thrown everywhere.

      The good news is that everyone got their hearing back so that crisis was averted. We get some backstory on this villain, who has dubbed himself “Discord”. It turns out he was a skilled violinist and turned down an MIT (Metropolis Institute of Technology) education to pursue his dream. The flashback also introduces his brother, who


      shows up later in the issue to try and reason with his brother.

      It seemed like the two had a solid relationship and he really did want to help his brother through his problems. Unfortunately, Discord had none of it and killed him. This might’ve been more effective if we had more than one issue of time devoted to him. I guess that would’ve been considered padding so it’s a double edged sword.

      He’s arrested and taken away and that’s that. There’s a backup ...


      • feature that has Arrow running into Cupid as they try discover an abusive husband who has just killed his wife. This sets off Cupid’s beserk button and she viciously attacks him. Arrow does nothing and it’s only when Hilton and his crew come in that Cupid is called off.

        Dinah tells Ollie to stop being Green Arrow because she doesn’t like the direction he’s heading. I’m certain that Ollie will snap out of it as if he stops it wouldn’t be a duo title anymore.

        It’s an interesting area to explore and does seem to work pretty well with Ollie, considering what is going on in the Justice League titles where they want to take a more proactive approach, this makes sense and considering that he fights crime with arrows, it’s a surprise he hasn’t killed anyone yet period.

        If the panels had been more coherently put together, I may’ve enjoyed it. The flashbacks offer some character development, but I skimmed through this issue with nothing really lost.
