The comicbook features writing by Andy Diggle and artwork by JOCK, the 6-issue mini series sees Oliver being marooned on a deserted jungle island, after being betrayed by his only friend and trusted bodyguard, and then learnt to use the bow and arrow while defending himself from heroin-traders. Read the full plot of the comicbook series on Wikipedia.
And now that "Smallville" is off the screens, "Arrow" somehow continues forth with a similar visual tone - not that I have anything to complain about (Ironically there was a "Green Arrow" in Smallville). Stephen Amell stars as 'Oliver Queen' in this new series, and you can find out more via www.greenarrowtv.com. Now that Hawkeye's purple is represented on the big screen in The Avengers, will this green-hooded vigilante conquer the television?
