That's what the internet buzz is saying.

So, one simple question for the students of pop culture (and of hat-wearing bowmen): WTF?

Or more precisely, what the f**K is DC thinking?

With pictures of this train wreck:

And a few descriptions of the awfulness:

(Read the Rise and Fall section for a summary.)

The "writer" of this will be also writing the new Green Arrow relaunch where Green Arrow is now a killer, been outlawed and hides out in the new forest which has magically appeared in the middle of his hometown. I had considered looking into how Robin Hoody this new take is (a bit on the nose, it sounds) but after reading about Arsenal, I doubt it.

Oh, and here's a cover of issue 3 of the new Green Arrow comic.

I don't feel any fan ownership of these characters. I know that Green Arrow, Roy Harper, Batman, etc. exist purely as corporate creations and the company can do what they'd like with them. It just strikes me as a really bizarre choice to publish a comic like this. I can't see how it will help them in the marketplace.

This is probably why I feel the same self-conscious sense of guilt and shame in entering a comic book shop as I probably would feel upon entering an adult-only video store. (Not that I know first hand, but I suspect porn shops have more appealing layouts and less creepy staff.)
