Week two of DC Comics’ “Convergence” event takes a step away from week one’s focus on pre-Flashpoint Gotham City, moving the action over to pre-Zero Hour Metropolis to catch us up with Oliver Queen and Connor Hawke. What does life under the dome and on the planet of Telos’ making have in store for this pair of archers?

After five chapters of somewhat lacklustre buildup and the appearance last issue of Green Arrow’s army of allies, it’s time this month for the concluding chapter of “The Kingdom.” With a legion of non-powered heroes at his back to take on all of John King’s “subjects,” will Green Arrow finally be able to take down his adversary…and save the girl?

Andrew Kreisberg and Ben Sokolowski’s run on Green Arrow continues this month with the third installment in the “Kingdom” story arc. This month we get our first real introduction to the arcs title villain, John King (I’m only counting last issue’s appearance as a glimpse), and his subjects. Is the King, apparently with power over even men of God, the villain Green Arrow needs right now?

I had a lot of complaints about last month’s installment of Green Arrow. New writers. New art direction. The sudden and strange appearance of merging the comic world and TV world of the character (I know that’s not what’s actually happened, it just feels like it). Perhaps it was just a bit of a hiccup out of the gates for the new creative team though. In contrast to last month, Green Arrow #36 seems like things are getting back the right track.

Goodbye Jeff Lemire, hello Andrew Kreisberg, Ben Sokolowski and whatever it is you have done to this book. I have to be honest here, I know it still says “Green Arrow” on the cover, but right now, that’s feeling like maybe it’s one too many words.

Pick of the Week – Daredevil: End of Days #8 – 4 stars

A little late getting this up this week, I’ve had some inconvenient work hours, but, here we go. After a relatively light week last week, there’s actually quite a bit to get me interested here. Earth 2 and Thunderbolts continue to move in interesting if not perfect directions. The Phantom Stranger gets a title change which is surely a harbinger of things to come. Green Lantern kicks off its post-Geoff Johns-era. The second issue of The Movement comes on the heels of a very strong debut issue. We have the end of one Daredevil limited and the beginning of another. And we have the debut issue of a new digital first book, Widowed, from what appears to be a brand new publisher, Shark Face Comics (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong on that). Of course, this is just what I picked up. For the full list of the week’s releases head over to Comic List.

Also, a special note here. Starting this week I’m going to be tweeting a little something about each book after I finish it. It may be insightful. It may be funny (probably just to me). Or it may just be weird or stupid. So , if you’re interested in my inane remarks on the weeks new releases, or random Malcolm Reynolds quotes as I rewatch Firefly, follow me on Twitter @KehtaamuNgetal.
