    1. 4.5 starsPorn-Buddies. Yeah, that's the basis for this book. Do you know what a porn-buddy is?It's that friend who, if you die, goes into your house and burns/deletes every last scrap of whatever embarrassingly deviant things you might have left behind your family finds it.I know what you're thinkingOnly Ollie doesn't need anyone to burn his porn stash for him.Get it? Porn Stache! Goddamnit, I'm hilarious!Whatever. I'm funny.Anyway, Ollie had a contingency plan to protect his family & friend [...]


    2. I don't think I read one thing I disliked from Brad Meltzer. He's a pretty awesome comic writer. So sad he doesn't have a huge amount of written products but this was another highlight for me. So Oliver is back in the living world. Roy comes to visit his father figure and they decide to go on an adventure. At first the story is very mysterious but as it goes on you begin to gather what Oliver is after. Him collecting objects of his past and him kinda going down memory lane. If Kevin did the job [...]


    3. In this tear jerker, author Brad Meltzer (Identity Crisis) takes our intrepid hero on a cross country trip with his former sidekick, Roy (Speedy/Arsenel/Red Arrow) Harper, to find some personal items from his younger super-hero days. Along the ways, Oliver discovers a lot about himself, and the meaning of family, and what it means to be a dad.*sniff*Great stuff.


    4. Well, the book definitely gets oddity points for its introduction by Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy. Brad Meltzer, who writes legal thrillers or something, takes over the chronicling of Green Arrow's adventures from that tubby bitch Kevin Smith. Can he alter my opinion of a hero I regard as one of DC's sillier second-stringers? Phil Hester's stiff, blocky art doesn't help. Neither does the storyline, yet another back-from-the-dead saga, as GA reminds us at the start of every chapter ("I was dead. I [...]


    5. I know I read this story during its publication run. I think coming off Kevin Smith's inaugural arcs, the simplicity of the tale's scope made this forgettable. Fourteen years later, fourteen years wiser, and now a father myself, I find Brad Meltzer's simple story of remembrance and reflection should be placed high up on the pantheon of Green Arrow stories. Humor, action, forgiveness, regret, albeit with standardly-average Phil Hester art, "Archer's Quest" is one of those hidden character gems th [...]


    6. Oh, how I love thee, Green Arrow.So Kevin Smith's reboot was the best first volume of any Green Arrow series I have ever read. Brad Meltzer wrote this third volume, but the story is still cohesive and still SO GOOD.This was a very realistic superhero comic. Meltzer was not at all hesitant about getting into the mortality of our favorite superheroes. This was evident when Ollie said "Batman's gonna die, Roy." I'm not going to get into the plot much for the purpose of avoiding spoilers, but Green [...]


    7. Trust me, when Brad Meltzer writes a comic book, you'll want to read it. I would have rated this one higher, except that G.A. is not one of my faves. Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing story that I thoroughly enjoyed, but I like Meltzer's JLA stuff better. Also try Andy Diggle's Green Arrow: Year One


    8. This is my favourite of the four volumes I have read. It is a great insight in to the mind of Queen, along with exploring relationships with other characters. The volume also explains his feelings towards recently deceased characters and really helps you get in to the mind of Ollie. The artwork is incredible, and the action scenes are brilliantly done.


    9. Una vez lo vi en un lugar bastante caro para el mal estado en el que estaba y no lo compré. Después lo vi en otro lado más barato y en mejor estado y ahí sí. La verdad que soy brillante.



    10. I love superheroes, and have since I was a kid. In my teens and 20's, I was definitely a Marvel Girl, loving X-Men and all X-titles (including Excalibur).I can to DC characters late, even though I loved Superfriends as a kid. I don't know when I got into Green Arrow, but having also loved Robin Hood since I was a kid, Green Arrow became a quick favorite. Mike Grell did awesome work on Green Arrow in the late 70's/early 80's, setting Ollie apart from other superheroes. And the reboot with Kevin S [...]


    11. Archer's QuestArcher's Quest is one of the finest Green Arrow stories written. It plays on the themes of family, friendship, and love. There is only one "villain" if you will but that's a surprise I'll leave for future readers and fans.



    12. Reseña de Txema CG para su blog:losarchivosdetypharesMIS TEBEOS FAVORITOS VIII: Green Arrow Archer´s Quest (2002-2003)Hola, amigos, bienvenidos a una nueva entrega de Mis Tebeos Favoritos, la sección de los Archivos de Typhares donde hablamos de cómics de todo tipo y condición que por un motivo u otro se me han quedado grabados a fuego y que por derecho propio están entre mis lista de cómics preferidos. Hoy voy con un cómic al que me acerqué gracias a las insistentes recomendaciones de [...]


    13. The premise of this book just barely holds together. It's a snipe quest for artifacts that really should have been destroyed, and some of them are exactly the items that Ollie wants at this point in time.Despite that weak beginning Archer's Quest is a terrific story. Part of that is Meltzer's marvelous use of DC continuity — not just old stuff, like Ollie's acceptance into the League, but also newer stuff from the '90s, like the reinvention of Shade and the introduction of Connor. Heck, Meltz [...]

    15. Not a bad idea, but lord this cements the current popular idea that 'Ollie is a complete jerk' equals strong, realistic characterization. The way he goes about most of his quest is asinine and the pay off doesn't make him a flawed man trying to do the right thing, but instead makes you realize he's a self centered idiot that did most of his thinking with a certain part of his anatomy and can't deal with the responsibility that it might involve.Shame as it also works to undo some of the decent st [...]



    16. Really great continuation to Kevin Smith's run on the Green Arrow. I really thought this was a character best suited to Smith because of the attitude he has, but now during Arrow's "revival", Meltzer found a compelling story to tell as Ollie is finding himself again as a human being, adult, man, and father to many. Really found this to be one of those comic stories that didn't have an ultimate villain or dilemma for Queen to solve, but actually a mission of personal interest and discovery that d [...]


    17. I'm reading out of order, as I find them. The art is clean, with a simple feel with nice detail. There's an "art book" section in the back that's pretty cool. Someone tore a page out of this edition, jerks. My favorite panel is on 26, with both Green Arrow and Arsenal (4.0, with the orangey arrow/maple leaf thing on the front).The story is outstanding. The concept is really cool, and I love how the author outlines how they came up with it in the back of the volume. I love how it manages to pull [...]


    18. Glorious. That is the perfect word to describe this set of stories.After Oliver Queen's resurrection and return to the world he now begins a quest that has him put his life back on track. Ollie basically sets himself across the state looking at places that meant alot to him when he was alive, several keepsakes as well as making sure that if he does die again that he leaves behind something for the people he loves.Without a doubt, for a comicbook to give an important lesson on mortality is unexpe [...]


    19. As I read this book I was unsure that Brad Meltzer had written what I wanted from this book. I was looking for plot twists and mystery like Identity Crisis. What I didn't know is that I was getting it and just didn't know it. Very emotional at its ending that hit home for me. Another great book by Brad Meltzer. I also enjoyed Phil Hester's and Ande Parks' artwork. Simple lines and clean. Just how I like good comic art. Strongly urge any comic fan to read this one!


    20. Green Arrow is my least favorite member of the Justice League, and this book only solidified that opinion in my mind. Because of the way Oliver Queen acts toward Green Lantern and Flash in this volume he comes off as too self-involved and reckless. The art, for the most part, is great but my God does Roy Harper look like a fat old man, pathetic even. This book is, in my opinion, only for the Green Arrow fanatics.


    21. Brad Meltzer pens an adorably appropriate look at a hero understanding his own mortality and how important the past shapes the future. Plus an awesome Ollie versus Grundy fight that was epic! Artist Phil Hester's art is strangely perfect and is an amazing pick. The dialogue was fantastic and Meltzer nailed it. Overall, this is one of my favorite Green Arrow stories ever.


    22. Solid story, more character development than action (basically a postscript to Kevin Smith's Green Arrow run). GA is a secondary DC character, but there's something about him that I like so I'm interested where they're going to take the live action TV show this fall. Then there's this: the forward to this book was written by Sen. Patrick Leahy. That's oddly cool.


    23. As long as I liked Kevin Smith's run, I think there was not much emphasis on how Oliver would face his new opportunity in life. Here we have it, Queen is alive but he has a task still before he can start his new life. A perfect visit to the past while we prepare to the future, recommended for old and new readers, a emotional take on an extraordinary but "realistic" hero


    24. Metzler provides us with a pleasantly emotional tour through the history of Oliver Queen on the heels of Kevin Smith's run. While much of the book is a trip down nostalgia lane, it's still very accessible to newer readers and, despite much of the histrionic posturing of the characters, very real. Recommended.


    25. Cool character driven issues. The whole volume only contains a single smack down in five issues. But we see who Ollie is as well or better than we ever could if he were facing someone down at death's door. Wonderful moments, with Ollie alone, with Kyle Rayner, Roy Harper, Dinah, Connor Hawke, just great character driven storytelling. Meltzer is fantastic.


    26. Brad Meltzer continues the plot of Ollie trying to cope with being alive again and how his loved ones are affected. His plot gets a little darker and foreshadows his Identity Crisis series. Everyone involved did a great job and I would recommend it to anyone who just read Kevin Smith's run.


    27. I know people get tired of the constant resurrection of super heroes, but this is a great comeback tale. The art fits, and the plot is full of little secrets and slight of hands that make it a fun romp through GA's past.
