This volume picks up a year after the explosive events of Heading into the Light, and it's been a heckuva year-- a wall has been built to separate the ghetto, Green Arrow (both of him) has disappeared, and Oliver Queen has become mayor of Star City. I enjoyed Judd Winick's early work on Green Arrow, but I'm really starting to tire of his approach; this was a bit better than the preceding book, though. The lame villains don't help: I never particularly liked Brick, and I've always thought that Deathstroke the Terminator was just dumb. Dumb name, dumb costume. Also, drugs turning innocent citizens into monsters was done by Winick five volumes ago. The best part of this book is Ollie trying out his new role as mayor, and I wish that we had more of that. The bit where he combines his two roles of politician and superhero to outsmart Deathstroke was great. On the other hand, him refusing to let anyone bring down the ghetto wall makes absolutely zero sense; glad to see you're willing to let people die to prove some kind of point, G.A.

Scott McDaniel's art has the virtue of being consistently decent. His Ollie is especially nice, though sometimes his face looks really weird. I don't really care for the full lips and big boobs he draws on Mia.
