Wonder Woman was the focus of the first arc. It's her book and it revolves around her life and the choices she makes. To some it might have felt otherwise, because of all the other characters showing up, but that's just world-building.
On topic, I think this could be great. It will certainly be better than what we've got now. And the art... the art... so gorgeous...
Looking for artists, know I won't find any. That blows.
In the Longbow hunters the kill is understandable and you can empathise with the (split second) decision that he makes after seeing the woman he loves being tortured, everything after that is just wanton slaughter for no other reason than to appear grounded. There are specific issues where it looks like it would be a great turning point away from lethal force use, like when he shoots a kid with a paintball gun thinking he's shooting at a cop, that were just there for drama and not an attempt and character growth.
Ollie does work when he's grounded, just not too grounded.
On another note I hope Hal comes back eventually so if Geoff and Jeff do do another shot at "Green Lantern Green Arrow: Hard Travelling Heroes" they can (re)develop their friendship. Which was sad to see there was no evidence of in JL#7. Not anything against Baz as hes quite an interesting character so far, he just doesn't have that same history. It's like when Kyle and Ollie join forces under Winick, it's a total different chemistry, which was fun, but not the same best frenemy dynamic.

I am intrigued by the idea of Lemire/Sorrentino on Green Arrow. Would it be a good idea to jump right into it or go back to issue # 1? I was a fan of the previous incarnations of the character (Before New 52), but have heard that the current one is awful. I may ignore the current story arcs. Do you think it would hinder my understanding of the current comic or would ignoring it be better?

When written properly Ollie has a strong social conscience which just does not fit with a complete disregard for fellow life.
James Bond isn't an antihero just because you don't approve of his methods.
I kind of like the idea of heroes with overwhelmingly strong super abilities, like Superman, having an absolute no-kill rule (although we've seen that good stories can come about when his code is broken). It makes sense for Superman to try to treat humans extra-delicately.
But I am not against there being some wiggle-room for the completely human characters like Batman or Green Arrow.
