Green Arrow (Volume 3) #69

This was one of the more enjoyable issues of Green Arrow in a while. I guess I am biased considering I love Batman and this issue is guest starring Batman but oh well. Batman makes things better. Unlike this month's Robin, the surprise guest at the very end of this book was not ruined by a cover announcement. So already this book is better than Robin this month. Green Arrow and Speedy worked really well together this issue and they seemed like a true mentor/sidekick. It is always good to see the mentor/sidekick relationship these days because so often the sidekick or the mentor are solo. I hope Speedy stays around for a long time because she makes the perfect partner to Green Arrow. Green Arrow's statement of thank you to Batman when Speedy did not even notice he was there was great. A nice little testament to how well Green Arrow knows Batman. So yes, I really enjoyed this issue. I look forward to next month as well.
