    But DKSA, while sillier, is a completely unrecognizable world.
    Nah, it's completely true that you don't understand the concept of DEGREES, or even the thread of your own argument.

    I think you need to reread DKR.

    This is perfect timing for me, Green Arrow tv show has made me regret never trying his ongoing as monthly read before. Lemire is the new DC 52 writer i trust most after Animal Man and Frankenstein.

    I was just waiting for a creator i can trust to give GA a chance.
    Pull List:
    The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar
    American Vampire,Animal Man,Swamp Thing
    Daredevil, Winter Soldier,Indestructible Hulk

    I, for one, am cautious but interested. Green Arrow, via Smith, actually brought comics into my psyche. An embarrassing introduction, perhaps, but it was the first work that stuck, and the character can be blamed for my participation in the readership of comics today. I had high hopes for Nocenti, but they didn't materialize. Lemire hasn't written anything I haven't enjoyed thus far, but it is a change of pace for him and it may not be a good fit. I was hoping beyond hope for Rucka or Brubaker or a fresh talent. Now I'm hoping Lemire will adapt to the genre without surrendering his own quirks.

    My nomination for 'best Green Arrow story ever' is certainly "Night Olympics", a short two part backup that ran in Detective by a young fellow named Alan Moore. After that, I have to say I most enjoyed Meltzer's 6 issue arc on the title, then Quiver, then perhaps Year One and finally Longbow Hunters.
    Have you read the Mike Barr/Trevor Von Eeden mini series? Phenomenal stuff for pre-crisis Ollie.

    Yeah, you couldn't pull Brubaker or Rucka from Marvel with a crowbar. It just won't happen. Both have worked at DC and prefer Marvel.

    You can pry Rucka away from Marvel. He's about to leave Punisher and he says he's done with the Big-2 for a while. He's going to focus on his independent projects.

    You couldn't pull them to DC with a crowbar, but they're both walking away from Marvel as we speak.

    "Hoping beyond hope" is a kind way of saying this is what you want, but it is entirely infeasible if not impossible given the circumstances. I said what I wanted, I didn't say it was realistic.

    Can Sorretino's art translate well to Green Arrow? Don't get me wrong: it fits so well with I, Vampire's dark, evil theme. But I don't see how it can go well with Green Arrow.

    agree with that counterpoint. There is so much in that cover, I can't wait to see the interiors.

    Yeah, it makes me seriously wonder how long that book can survive now. Get ready for it to end, I guess. Oh well.
