Oliver Queen reminds me of what Bruce Wayne could have been like if he'd had say, a bogan personality and thrown in with a few amphetamines and a social conscience to kick-start. The story begins a little slowly, but soon becomes a spectacular romp of Survivor meets Die Hard. Discover how Ollie embraced the Robin Hood persona, destroyed an international drug ring, helped a pregnant woman give birth and all the while maintain his colourfully sardonic, obnoxious personality.

The art by Jock is fluidly presented, and easy to follow, but I don't think I would purchase the book for just that alone...

You're right. It's why we love him. (Or hate him, heh) :D
