written by Judd Winick, and illustrated by Scott McDaniel

Having gotten caught up into Arrow I decided to check out this TPB of the original character. It takes place after Infinite Crisis where apparently Green Arrow was missing for a year. It picks up where Oliver Queen is elected mayor of Star City. He immediately becomes the political enemy of a powerful, corrupt businessman who hires none other then Deathstroke Terminator to assassinate Ollie. Later, Green Arrow must stop a chemically altered form of heroin from making hundreds of Star City residents into mindless, slavering, cannibalistic zombies.

The writing was pretty good. Judd Winick is among my favorites in the industry, but this is not his best work. It starts to get very preachy what with Ollie making all these "bold political moves" every other moment. The art by Scott McDaniel (inked by Andy Owens) was mediocre. The McDaniel/Owens team did the artwork through the entire volume though which is nice to see these days. It reprints issues 60-65 originally published in 2006 on nice, slick paper stock.

Cover priced at $12.99 it is one of the more economical titles around.

Guest starring Deathstroke, and (briefly) Speedy/Mia. I would pass it up unless you're looking for more Green Arrow or a Deathstroke fan, however. The cover price was nice and low, but overall it is thoroughly average.

$12.99 for a trade that came out 6 years ago ? you can get a 2 year old video game for that kind of cash
