it was ok

Fashioned after the mythic Robin Hood, you knew it was only a matter of time before DC Comics' very own Emerald Archer found himself in a forest. Following the Brightest Day storyline, Oliver "Green Arrow" Queen has set himself up as protector of the star-shaped forest within his city limits. The book does little to move beyond the typical comparisons - a mysterious knight appears to aid Ollie, a "lady of the lake" appears in the form of Ollie's deceased mother, and the tyrannical red-garbed Queen has taken over Star City itself. Crammed with unnecessary appearances by Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter, this volume fails to add any new depth to the Green Arrow; honestly, it was a filler until the September 2011 DCnU relaunch. Therefore, this Green Arrow storyline leaves me shafted.
