'Green Arrow Vol. 1: The Death and Life of Oliver Queen' by Benjamin Percy with art by Otto Schmidt delivers what the title states, so hopefully that's not a spoiler.

Oliver Queen returns to Seattle. In his role helping the people of Seattle, he finds that the homeless are being preyed on by ghastly looking beings that seem to be burned. It ties in to his very fortune and family. Before he knows it, he is betrayed by those closest to him, and murdered.

But that's not the whole story. He now finds himself without his fortune, but he still has friends and he wants to solve the mystery of the organization that has taken his wealth to use for evil purposes.

I've always liked that Green Arrow is set in Seattle, and I appreciate that they get so many of the details right. It's good to see Black Canary back in the picture, and I look forward to seeing what Green Arrow's sister Emi will do in future issues.

The writing is good and the art is pretty good as well. The book includes some character, and cover sketches. Also included is a cover gallery with art by Green Arrow legend Neal Adams.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
