It’s All In The Eyes

So if you haven’t read Green Arrow and Black Canary Wedding Special #1 stop reading. Come back when you have because I need to vent and that means spoilers. So to keep all you people who don’t want to know from seeing something you don’t want to see, I’m putting up this photo I found after a yahoo image search for “spoiler alert.”

Pretty funny right? Anyway, it is obvious I’m pretty torked about what happened to my boy Oliver Queen. We all knew his absence on the covers of the upcoming Black Canary/Green Arrow meant some sort of terrible fate would befall him. But come on! To attack Black Canary on their wedding night was more than I even thought was going to happen. It is sensationalism at its worst. I pledged yesterday that if the cause of Ollie's madness is something as lame as during the fight Deathstroke got in a mind control chip that I would swear off of DC Comics. That is still true. If that is the case I’m done with DC. I’ll take the bite on the neck and come back all undead as a Marvel Zombie. Well, maybe not a Marvel Zombie but I’ll only read small press books. That is how much I love the Green Arrow character.

But then this morning, upon rereading it, I noticed something that kind of bolstered my spirits. It made me think Green Arrow’s attack is some how linked to the larger threat that is looming over the cosmos, over the DCU. As the title says it is all in the eyes.

Either Ollie was smoking the herb after the wedding or he has come down with a case of the same Space Anger that has befallen Cliff Baker and Steven Hazard. Maybe, I’m just being optimistic though. Whatever the answer is, DC is keeping me reading…for now.

I'm just glad Ollie still has two arms.
