Comic Review: Green Arrow #8

If I ever get married, I'm gonna hire Otto Schmidt to draw my wedding and Benjamin Percy to write my vows.

That's how GOTDAMN MUCH I LOVE THIS SERIES RIGHT NOW.

Seriously, this is incredible.

Otto Schmidt returns to Green Arrow and he brought sexy all the way back. This book leaps off the page and directly into your freaking heart. Green Arrow #8 offers the reader extended quality time with Dinah and Ollie and another one of the single best splash pages of the year. 

No, I won't post it. Go buy this book. It's  $3 and worth every single penny.

Seriously. 

Benjamin Percy crafts an incredible two days on the island for Ollie and Dinah while mixing in Diggle and a brief baddie. But this issue isn't about the threat looming over Green Arrow. It's about the relationship that guides Oliver Queen.

Pretty bird. 

Pretty bird. 

The dialogue and action between our love struck heroes is beautiful. It's soulful and witty and corny and SHOCKINGLY NORMAL. They talk like NORMAL HUMANS. God. It's so refreshing and endearing.

Part of me hopes Ben Percy never reads this review to see me gushing over his words but he made a grown man go all squish inside with feelings. You win again, Percy. 

FINAL RATING: 10/10 BRIGHT SIDES 

If Benjamin Percy and Otto Schmidt work on Green Arrow forever, DC will have a customer for life.
