    1. Re-Read 2014I read this for the 1st time about 5 years ago, and thought it was amazing. So, I re-read it this yearjust to make sure.Since the tv show started, quite a few people have asked me to recommend a good Green Arrow comic book.And this was the only one I could think to point them towards.Shame on you, New 52!Anyway, I got a little nervous when I realized it had been a while since I had actually read this one. What if I was remembering it wrong? What if it sucked!?Long story short, I boug [...]


    2. Apparently there are two methods on how to survive if you find yourself marooned on an island:1) Go almost crazy from loneliness and start talking to a volleyball.2) Teach yourself to be a master archer using the bow and arrows you cobble together.The first alternative will get you an Oscar nomination while the second will enable you to become a superhero with your own TV show.Wealthy Oliver Queen is a feckless thrill-seeking playboy. After embarrassing himself with a drunken incident at a chari [...]


    3. 5.5 stars!!!Introduction: Alright, so I have been reading “Batman” and “Superman” comic books from DC Comics so far, but I have yet to read comic books from other superheroes like “Flash,” “Green Lantern” and “Wonder Woman.” But now I finally got the chance to check out another DC superhero that I have not read about at all and that is “Green Arrow!” Now, I have been watching the “Arrow” TV series for a while now and I had always wanted to read more about “Green Arr [...]


    4. This is the origin story of Green Arrow, and it leaves a much better impression than the godawful TV show right away. The basic premise is the same — billionaire playboy gets lost at sea and stranded on an island where he learns to survive, and then meets some bad guys and fights them. But because it's a comic book and not a live action show, there's 100% less Stephen Amell in the mix, and of course no Berlanti/Guggenheim to turn the story into a cheeseball of horrible writing and plotting. An [...]


    5. What a great example of taking a 'third-tier' character and reimaging himw he is one of the hottest DC characters around! Should be a 'text book' for other characters - Hawkman?


    6. I've never been a fan of Green Arrrow's and have only seen the character crop up in big events like Final Crisis a few years back, so I didn't know what to expect from the character. He's basically just Robin Hood right? Well I was pleasantly surprised. Oliver Queen is a rich playboy who lives a directionless life until one day while practicing archery in the Pacific, his friend betrays him and leaves him for dead. He washes ashore a desert island and hones his skills with a bow and arrow until [...]


    7. I really have nothing to compare this to. I've never read a Green Arrow solo book, and I've barely seen him show up in somebody else's book. So I'm coming in about as fresh as possible. Maybe that's a good thing, because I ended up really enjoying this. I don't know if it's a fresh take on his origin or a skilled rehash, and I don't really care. I had fun reading it.


    8. So this is the first graphic novel I've read, or what some try to tell me is just a big comic book. I walked out of the library this week and ran into some friends who noticed "Man of Steel" and "Iron Man" DVDs under my arm along with this thing and a couple of actual novels. "I'm on a bit of a superhero kick right now," I said with my head hung low. "Ohhhh our son reads those, too," says the wife pointing to my graphic novel slash comic book. He's five. But, to make a long story longer, I start [...]


    9. A quality read from start to finish and an excellent starting point for new readers, it's easy to see why Green Arrow: Year One is so highly regarded. Andy Diggle pens an engaging story that only gets better as things progress. Jock brings his unique art style to the table and colourist David Baron elevates it with some atmospheric colour work.I've only read bits of Green Arrow before this, but Year One has guaranteed that the character is a future priority on my reading list. Recommended.


    10. First review: Still stands up to my insane devotion to Diggle and Jock on repeated readings. This is a helluva modernization - feels like all the antiquated foolishness of Green Arrow's olden days is washed away, leaving only the core of a real live flawed man who needs so badly to find purpose in his life. I know exactly how he feels, so maybe this resonates so much with me because I see myself so easily in this Oliver Queen.Fantastic, rapid-paced action, none of the usual braying by heroes or [...]


    11. Absolutely awesome. Great writing that created deep, believable characters, solid dialog, and a conceivable island storyline that wasn't as weird as the show (think Lost). Ollie's dialog was a bit dorkier than the show but it didn't really bother me. There were good quality comic art panels and stunning splash pages that seemed to combine photography and illustration. I was glad I checked this out.


    12. So I don't know much about this character except maybe now and then from the Justice League cartoons and now the show Arrow. So I thought, well, might as well read a comic with this character. And this was pretty good, interesting but good.It does make me want to continue watching Arrow. The flashbacks to him on the island were honestly, the most interesting moments and when he meets the later characters, at least in the first season.So it was interesting reading about Oliver on the island in a [...]


    13. Beklentilerimin altında kalan bir macera oldu ne yazık ki. Green Arrow'un köken hikâyesini anlatan etkileyici bir macera beklerken "ıssız bir adaya düşen ve hayatta kalmak için bir anda aslan kesilen" birinin mantık hatalarıyla dolu, klişe öyküsünü okudum. Green Arrow'un köken hikâyesinin 90'larda değiştirilip işin içine ıssız ada etmeninin katıldığını biliyorum. Bu çizgi romanın o hikâyenin modern bir anlatısı olduğunu da biliyorum. Yine de iyi işlenemediğin [...]



    14. “İlk Yıl” ibaresini görünce insan pek bir beklentiye giriyor değil, mi? Özellikle de Batman: İlk Yıl’ı okuduysanız… Ama ne yazık ki Green Arrow’un köken hikâyesi bu ibarenin ağırlığını taşıyamıyor. Durun durun, gömmeye başladım hemen. En iyisi sayfaları başa çevireyim.2007’de Andy Diggle ile Jock ikilisi tarafından hazırlanan tek ciltlik bu mini seri Starfish Adası’nda yaşananları ayrıntılı bir şekilde ele alan, modern bir köken hikâyesi. Oliv [...]


    15. Malých dětí se ptáte, jak jsou velikéVhodná otázka pro mě je, jak moc žeru Olivera Queena! Odpověď?->Tááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááák mocw. Já snad začnu mít ráda zelenou!A hned mám trochu víc ňuňánkovací náladičku!


    16. More like 3.5 stars. Was interesting to read, especially knowing this is where the main source material for the show (of which I've watched all three seasons) was taken from. I liked the light re-working of Oliver's origins, while still staying true to his character. I am glad that I read this and wish the show had stuck closer to Green Arrow territory and not ventured so far into Bat-land. I'd recommend it if you're a fan of the show, or interested in something similar. Otherwise, not truly nec [...]


    17. Although I'm not a fan of the art but definitely great writing by Andy Diggle. I wonder if the Diggle character in the series Arrow is purposely named to pay homage to this writer, but nonetheless a little different from the origin story we've seen played out over the CW.Oliver Queen still is the same spoiled rich kid who finds himself betrayed and left for dead after being thrown overboard his own ship. He washes up on an island and it is here where his mettle is tested and is faced with the ha [...]


    18. I really enjoyed this take on a rich and privileged boy having to fend for himself in the wild, and ultimately become the man he always wanted to be. Oliver gets fooled by someone he trusts and he lands on an island in the middle of nowhere. But the island hold some secretsThis was a great intro to Green Arrow and it definitely makes me want to read more about Oliver Queen! And I can't wait to see some more ass kicking!

    19. I was reminded of this book today and ended up rereading it. This is the book that the Arrow TV series is based off of.



    20. This is one of the best year one stories I’ve ever read. There is a common trend in superhero comics to continually update a hero’s origin to fit with the times, and the work a popular writer or artist has done with the character. This doesn’t fill like one of those stories at all. In fact this story is so simple you can boil it down very fast and it loses none of its punch: Rich playboy discovers himself and his life mission while surviving on a deserted island. It is that simple. The th [...]


    21. I'm a big Green Arrow fan. Ever since I saw him on the Justice League Unlimited cartoon when I was younger. He was the cheeky, less brooding version of Batman. He had a ton of money an no real powers, apart from his ridiculous archery skills. I am also a huge fan off the TV series, which seems to have taken some inspiration from this book.This is the origin story of Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow. He was a spoilt rich kid searching for the next adrenaline filled adventure, trying to fill an unknow [...]


    22. I think my expectations were too high on this. I saw the names Diggle and Jock (whose art I really like) and got really excited. I knew the basics of GA's origin but never any of the specifics of just what happened on the island figured this would be an excellent (albeit modern version of the events.The story is really well done, a couple cool moments and lines, but in the end it didn't feel like a really unique and original take. Nowadays it's a bit of a cliche origin which may be why I'm less [...]


    23. Since I've gotten back into comics over the past few years, Green Arrow has become my favorite character/superhero. His outlook on the world, how things should be, and his defense of the poor and working class made him a very unique character in the world of capes and tights. His philosophy was also something that I really identified with. That was of course until the character was ruined in the New 52. Green Arrow: Year One is the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths/Infinite Crisis origin of Green A [...]


    24. 4.5Ever since I started watching the television series Arrow, I have developed a keen interest for Oliver Queen. I love the idea behind his backstory and the development into his life of the Green Arrow.Now that I've started reading graphic novels (seriously, why didn't I do this a long time ago?), I had to pick up one based off the Green Arrow, and this one caught my eye. I have no regrets in this purchase.Green Arrow: Year One delivered an in-depth look into an amazing origin story for Oliver [...]


    25. yEEESS finally a good green arrow story!I've been looking forward to this!So of course Oliver in the beginning was always drunk and being stupid.But of course the island changed him.One of the best Arrow stories i have ever read.The first thing i thought was he never knew how to shoot with a bow and arrow but hes been knowing before being on the island,you could say hes a natural.His best friend betrays him and secretly on the island theirs a huge drug cartel.This comic is so much better than th [...]


    26. This one is worth reading just for the art alone. Each page is monochromatic, and the colors are really distinctive. The blue water pages are gorgeous, and the green really makes the island feel lush. The first few beginning pages are a nondescript brown, which so contrasts the wild and crazy life that Oliver is leading - but also implies that it is dull, vivid-less. It's very clever. Story-wise, it's pretty solidgood origin story, and I enjoyed the introduction of China White. Some of it was a [...]


    27. In general, I'm sort of "over" long retellings of superhero origins. While there's usually something interesting unearthed when the magnifying glass is brought over an origin story that only took two or three pages to cover in the 1950's, I've suffered through too many languidly paced Year One mini-series to very much care anymore.That being said, I was surprised to find myself loving Green Arrow: Year One as much as I did. I had heard amazing things about the creative team of Andy Diggle and Jo [...]


    28. A smart updating of Green Arrow's "origin", with a clever script by Andy Diggle and Jock's trademark pencils. It has that "summer blockbuster movie" vibe to it (Die Hard comes to mind), without succumbing to the excesses and pitfalls that one can find in half of them.
