Green Arrow #2

The second issue doesn't attempt to make sense or shed light on events of the first issue. However, we do see what Oliver Queen has been up to since being stranded on an alien world (his basic street-level heroics taking on space mobsters and the like) and Cheshire Cat joins in on his latest run-in with a paid enforcer to take Ollie down. Our hero remains cryptic about what exactly is pulling his family apart as well as his unwillingness to try and fight his way back to them. This unnecessarily enforced enigmatic view on his existence could get old quick.

The other half of the story involves Black Canary and Arsenal searching for their missing family by looking for Amanda Waller who they believe can shed some light on what may be happening. They don't find Waller, but they do run into some trouble they'll need to work through with a couple of her minions in the next issue.
