Okay, I know a lot of people think that recently this book has been turning into "Ex Machina"-Lite, but the past two issues have been back up the pace and story quality that kept me reading the series as long as I have been...

I'm really enjoying seeing Oliver Queen duking it out with Natas, and also the relationship between him and Connor (whose miniseries I am eagerly awaiting).

The series seems to be shaping up, and I'm really happy about that. Green Arrow is one of the best characters in the DC Universe, and he deserves a great ongoing series. I hope Winick keeps it up...

Also: LitG seems to think that there's going to be a Green Arrow: Year One miniseries... Which would be amazing if done well. They haven't reworked his origin in a very long time, and its due for some polishing.

I want to see the rematch against Deathstroke.
Natas is cool, I wonder if Oliver will step out of the line that Connor said.

I have the issues, but still need to read them.

Green Arrow's a good character though.

I can't for Winik's Red Hood to show up.

Yeah...

I still wish my idea about the Red Hood would pan out. (The Question and Richard Dragon retraining Jason into becoming a better vigilante, then Vic Sage retiring, with Jason Todd Becoming the new Question), but I mostly just want him to be written by a competent writer.

Well there is talk of this book ending.......and a Green Arrow/Black Canary ongoing starting up after.

It has yet to be confirmed though.

Seriously, the Black Canary/Green Arrow wedding is something I'm surprised hasn't happened yet... They are like two peas in a pod.

Before the GA/BC series there's the Black Canary miniseries. Pick that up if you want to see a duo series.

Honestly? I'd love for them to do a Green Arrow/Green Lantern series like the old Neil Adams, and then Denny O'Neil series... Hardline rightwinger with a wacky lefty with a bow and arrow. With this political climate, honestly im getting a little sick of how every single good guy talks politics as if the lines were written by the DNC.

And this is coming from a left-winger, so... yeah.

I also love the GL/GA relationship. I like there being best friends who fight crime.

It should be couples crimefighting. :D Ollie and Dinah with Hal and whatever skank he's dating at the time.

Hey, the Red Hood story was damn good, so shut it.

I think having him in Nightwing, Outsiders and Green Arrow was way over the top. Keep him to Batman and actually resolve the original story already. I was surprised he wasn't in Trials of Shazam (there's still time).

He wasnt writing Nightwing when Red Hood showed up.

I agree that the Red Hood Outsiders arc wasnt great, but that GA arc was good because it did more to explore Batman's relationship with Ollie.

But the original Red Hood story in Batman... That was some of Winnick's best stuff (aside from the Superboy-Prime punches, but thats from editorial)

I wasn't a huge fan of the Red Hood arc, but it wasn't bad, per se.

But right now, Winnick isn't writing a single book I'm enjoying. Green Arrow, Outsiders,Trials of Shazam. all terrible.
