What Happened: This issue opens up with Ollie having a dream that he's meeting with his younger self, back when he was stranded on the island that turned him from a boozing playboy into Green Arrow. Young Ollie tells old Ollie that he should go back to Dinah and make up with her, but old Ollie is too busy wallowing in self-pity to listen to his younger self. After a few pages, and some fisticuffs, old Ollie realizes that his younger counterpart is right, and he wakes up, determined to find Dinah and beg her forgiveness. Upon arriving at his and Dinah's home, Ollie discovers ANOTHER Ollie standing in the doorway with Dinah and Mia. Ollie launches an attack on Ollie #2, which cause Dinah to believe that Ollie isn't Ollie, but that Ollie #2 is the real Ollie... That was officially the most CONFUSING line I have EVER typed out! Somewhere my English professor is crying... Anyway, to make a long(and confusing!)story short, Ollie convinces Dinah that he is the real Oliver Queen, and Dinah realizes that Ollie #2 is Everyman, who took Ollie's place during Ollie and Dinah's wedding. Everyman runs away, still thinking that he is the real Oliver Queen, and is chased down by Ollie and Dinah. Before Ollie and Dinah can apprehend Everyman, he falls through a window on top of a warehouse, which causes Ollie and Dinah to lose track of him. Everyman winds up getting captured by an unseen assailant(probably Cupid...)while Dinah and Ollie return home to make up with each other.
What I Thought: Hey, you know what? I liked this comic. It was heads and shoulders better then the last few issues of this series has been, so that's definitely a good thing. It was a bit confusing at times(there were THREE different Ollie's here!), but all in all, I can't really complain too much. Plus Cupid didn't show up! That fact adds an extra 1/2 to the score for this issue!
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.Leave it to Ollie to attack his younger self in a dream...
