The art is rather boring and Oliver is such a jerk and the stories are not interesting at all.
Once volume 6 comes out I will read it and I hope the new guys will keep up the quality that came with Lemire and Sorrentino.
So I finally got my act together and finished volume 3 (all the issues up until Lemire joined) and god what a mess it all was compared to Lemire's run.
Some issues had a different artist for every other page so the art was all over the place and every issue felt pretty much stand-alone.
I am so looking forward to them releasing volume 6, which is due in may I believe.

That's a bad thing?

Yeah.

With that said I'll stick to my Van Dyke sporting Green Arrow comics.

Well, not just in terms of story, but how the characters behaved and all that.

I am really disliking this new direction from the book.
Felicity is just annoying. I want Queen to be responsible for fighting and catching bad guys. I want him to take down baddies by himself. he doesn't need Diggle and he doesn't need a tech expert. The show works cause it's an hour long and acting is bearable. but having to mash these characters into a short comic takes too much time away from GREEN ARROW!! It's his comic, why is he on the sidelines most pages?

I'm just going to wait for the new talent after Convergence to return to reading this book. I loved Lemire's stint.

Green Arrow will feel like a movie in your hands. @PatrickZircher draws the way cinematographer John Alcott (2001, The Shining) sees.

Let’s conclude this interview with a question about Green Arrow. You have already written two comics starring Batman, and you are about to tackle Green Arrow in an ongoing comics series. Is there anything you would like to share with us about your hopes or goals for writing Green Arrow’s adventures?

I can’t say too much—I’m not supposed to talk content or characters—but I will say that Patch Zircher and I are taking the series in a new direction. It has zero connection to the television show. We will be incorporating some of the Jeff Lemire mythology. The aesthetic will be dark and literary and packed with arresting visuals (Patch draws the way cinematographer John Alcott sees.) The other day Patch said to me, “You know what happened to James Bond when Daniel Craig took over? This is like that.” I sure hope people enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

This is an exciting beginning for me, and my goal is not only to nail Green Arrow, but to pitch some original ideas and take on assignments in other established series. I love writing comics; this is, corny as this sounds, a dream come true. Especially compared to the Hollywood nightmare. Writers don’t get a lot of respect out there. If you don’t do what the brass ask of you, they simply fire you and bring someone else on board. And every project moves so, so slowly, prohibited by actor availability, special effects costs, endless and conflicting producer notes. Comics are so freeing, so pure by comparison. And the creative partnership—between artist and writer—is the most rewarding collaboration I’ve ever experienced.

^^ YES!!
Arrow works on TV cause it's a much different medium (spelling?)
But comics can be so much grander and more fun that you don't need soap opera ish...relationships and super fast annoyingly witty characters that reference twitters and bookfaces and such...
I've gotten so old...

Looking closer and closer to Charlie Hunnam though, they might be trying to tell us something.

Really can't wait for their run to start. The current one is crap.

Can't wait to see Ollie get his toe caught in his baggy pants as he runs across a rooftop while trying to pull an arrow from the quiver hanging on the wrong side of his body and down by his waist...
