Green Arrow #50

The latest volume of Green Arrow comes to a close with Oliver Queen on the run from the government. It seems word has gotten out about the secret box given to Green Arrow by the Justice League in case of emergencies, and those in power want it in their possession at any cost (even if that means calling on Black Canary to help bring the archer in).

The over-sized fiftieth issue is filled with tough decisions, as Dinah is forced to choose between Ollie and the black ops team sent to take him in. Writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing realize a simple truth early in the issue, it doesn't matter what is actually in the box only that there are those willing to fight for it.

Ollie's discovery at the end of the issue cements his disappointment with all things hero related, apprently moving the Emerald Archer off the grid (again). Hrm. As for Black Canary, she does help Ollie escape but can't go with him as DC opens a new path for the character to explore sans archer. Worth a look.
