Unbridled Capitalism: Lefty Pinko Jackwagon Edition

Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters -- Picked up at Mr. K's for a cool $5 (sort of... I have a lot of trade credit so this didn't cost me anything out of pocket!), this is the second printing of the collected edition of the Mile Grell prestige format Green Arrow mini from 1987.  I know, I know -- I'm a Hawkman booster, what's the deal?  Well, beyond the fact that this series is one of those which is constantly put over as one of those ones "you gotta read," I don't particularly dislike Green Arrow.  I like that he is something of a pompous jerk, and I have grown to enjoy his smarminess over the years.  I liked him a lot on the Justice League cartoon, and was one of the dozen or so who actually likes Cry For Justice.  The fact that Carter and Oliver form the best pair of superhero frenemies I have ever read is icing on the cake.  So I figured if I wanted to read some Green Arrow this was a good place to start.  

Plus I can pass it along to my buddy Adama to read when I am done.

Plus, this was the start of Ollie's Don Henley period, when he was disillusioned from his liberal idealism and became a more pragmatic quasi-conservative working with the C.I.A. and stuff.
