DC To Relaunch Green Arrow. Again.

DC has announced Green Arrow #1 for June release.

DC has announced that after the current Fall of Green Arrow storyline, the character’s book will relaunch with a brand new #1 in June.  Brought to us by J.T. Krul and Diogenes Neves, the new series will focus on Ollie Queen’s new status as the outlaw anti-hero of the decimated Star City.

Writer Krul had this to say on the subject:

“This is it!  We’ve been saying for awhile now that 2010 was going to
be big for Green Arrow, and you can’t get much bigger than this.  As we
put together the story for the Fall of Green Arrow and developed where
he was going to end up and what Ollie’s life was going to be like, we
knew it was truly a new beginning.  A BRIGHTEST DAY beginning at that!

In the wake of the turmoil in Star City, the people need someone in
their corner more now than ever.  Most of those in power, be it business
or government, are looking for ways to exploit the situation to their
advantage. The city is rife with crime and corruption of epic
proportions and it’s only getting worse.  But all is not lost.  Oliver
Queen’s got his quiver. Now, it’s time for Green Arrow to move into the
role he was always meant to be – outlaw for the people.

For this relaunch, Eddie and Adam and the guys at DC have put
together the best team possible to make Ollie shine like never before.
Diogenes Neves and Vicente Cifuentes killed on the Black Lantern Green
Arrow special and we knew they were the guys to relaunch the Emerald
Archer.  And don’t even get me started on the cover work by Mauro
Casciolli.  I’m so happy to finally share it with the rest of the world –
because it’s been my screen saver ever since I saw it.  Now THAT’S
Green Arrow!!!”

DC has also released Mauro Cascoli’s cover art from the forthcoming book.
