Green Arrow #2: Writer: JT Krul. Pencils: Diogenes Neves.
We kick things off with BFF(!) Hal Jordan and Oliver Queen shooting the breeze in Star City's enchanted forest.
After Ollie shows Hal around and the two talk for a bit, the heroes are attacked by a goon squad sent by the new head of Queen Industries, which sucks for Hal, since his GL ring doesn't work in the enchanted forest.
Eventually Ollie realizes that he has to get Hal out of the enchanted forest, and catapults Hal high above the trees.
Away from the forest and charged up again, Hal makes quick work of the helicopters, while Ollie mops up the goons below.
With the threat over, Hal tries to convince his friend to return to civilization, but Ollie is too stubborn, and decides that forest living is the life for him.
This issue ends with some cad shooting Ollie in the forehead with a black arrow.
What I Thought: Man, it seems like ages since I read the first issue... With that said, once I started reading this comic, I was drawn into the story rather swiftly. Ollie and Hal have that type of chemistry that always makes their appearances together fun, and this issue was no exception. The establishment of the head of Queen Industries as Ollie's major enemy seems like a good idea, and the cliffhanger was also out of the blue and interesting, so all in all, we had some pretty good stuff here. Oh yeah, it seems that Thor was hanging out in the enchanted forest, I guess to pay Ollie back for appearing in an issue of Thor a while back. See, it's Thor!
Score: 8 out of 10.
