Some thoughts about Green Arrow #40
Raphastan is in war and Ollie is about to die because of it unless the heroes of this country save him.
This little tale concludes in an appropriate way I believe.
Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly deliver the last chapter of this arc by bringing good characterization and understandable themes. The portrayal of Oliver is particularly well-done since the writers emphasize that he's a survivor and has always managed to live despite of the odds while also putting him in a situation where his political beliefs are not that useful and puts him in a dilemma. The way how the characters of Raphastan are depicted is also solid and even includes nice references to the rest of the DCU.
I think even the writers go a bit meta towards the end due that they make Ollie says that this is "not his story and never wanted him" which makes me suspect they were planning to tell this tale in another way but Ollie's inclusion is still logical in a sense.
Marcio Takara's artwork is adequate with clear storytelling and detailed settings.
Decent overall, hope the upcoming run is even better.
