'Green Arrow' writer Jeff Lemire likens run to reboot

By
Green Arrow's new writer Jeff Lemire has likened his forthcoming run on the comic to a reboot.

The Sweet Tooth creator plans to introduce wholesale changes to the Emerald Archer, describing his debut at the helm as "basically a first issue".

He told Newsarama: "Anyone who hasn't been reading the book yet, since the 'New 52' launch, doesn't need to worry about what's going on.

"The challenge for me, when taking over the title at issue #17, was really to try to approach it as if it's a first issue, so that it's completely accessible to new readers.

"Everything you need to know about the character and his world is established in a simple way in that first issue. So you can jump on really easily."

Lemire will team up with artist Andrea Sorrentino during his run on the comic, and the pair plan on stripping protagonist Oliver Queen from his millionaire lifestyle and pitting him against a new villainous archer named Komodo.

Green Arrow #17 will be released in February.
