Green Arrow #12 AND Iron Man 2.0 #5
These comics are how you do not do event tie-in comics, and for different reasons that result in them being the same less-than-enjoyable level of quality. Let's be like MC Hammer and break it down. Now that is one dated reference.
Green Arrow, that comic I'm not too upset about. It's been pretty much eleven issues of nothing happening and this issue is more of that. The thing that bugs me is that it is Ollie commenting on the events of the main Brightest Day book with him pretty much watching it happen off-panel. So watch him watching it. Yeah, that sucks. Don't show us that, show us the aftermath or something...oh wait, you do, and its utterly pointless with him just walking back into Star City even though I thought he was banished forever or something melodramatic in a comic by the exact same writer as this one--J.T. Krul. Krul will be be doing the Green Arrow series after the re-launch of DC titles, I will not be interested in that and be on my merry way, thank you.
2 out of 5 stars (both).
