An excellent reimagining of Oliver Queen's origin in the pre-Flashpoint DCU. Fans of the "Arrow" television series would enjoy this story. The writing and art meld together perfectly.

A retooling of the Green Arrow story, this time finding Oliver Queen as a daredevil playboy who pushes himself to do "extreme" things to feel alive. When he is betrayed by his right hand man and dumped in the ocean, left for dead, Queen's life begins to change. Washed up on the shore of an uncharted desert island, Oliver has to learn how to fend for himself. When he discovers that he is not alone on the island, Oliver discovers that he has more skills within him than he realized.

This is in an OK retooling of the Green Arrow story, but there is nothing special here to have warranted a new book.
