This is Judd Winick's first contribution to Green Arrow, a series he would write for the rest of its run (minus a few interludes). There's some continuity from the first two volumes in that Phil Hester and Ande Parks continue on the art duties, but even without that, it would be a smooth transition-- Winick seems to get Oliver Queen, the man who wants to do the best he can, but still can't avoid who he is. I like how Winick melds some of Green Arrow's typical social justice concerns into a superhero format; the monsters he fights here are imported workers who have had substandard healthcare. Overall, it's a fun, successful story, aside from the very convenient appearance of Superman when Green Arrow gets in over his head at one point. I also really like the villain he introduces here, Constantine Drakon, though I'm already tired of seeing Connor Hawke get beat up to prove the situation is serious.
