So I don't know much about this character except maybe now and then from the Justice League cartoons and now the show Arrow. So I thought, well, might as well read a comic with this character. And this was pretty good, interesting but good. It does make me want to continue watching Arrow. The flashbacks to him on the island were honestly, the most interesting moments and when he meets the later characters, at least in the first season. So it was interesting reading about Oliver on the island in a different story at least. Anyway, this comic, pretty good read. Like the art as well.
