Lemire had this to say about his start on the title, “The challenge for me, when taking over the title at issue #17, was really to try to approach it as if it's a first issue, so that it's completely accessible to new readers.” He continued, “Everything you need to know about the character and his world is established in a simple way in that first issue. So you can jump on really easily.”
In the first arc by the new team, Green Arrow will be facing a new villain, Komodo, a man with archery skills greater than Oliver Queen's and determined to destroy the hero.
