I'm extremely pumped for it. I love Lemire anyway, but I'm especially excited because he compared it to Mike Grell and Andy Diggle's Green Arrow runs, and Denny O'Neil's Question run.

Be prepared for gritty, street-level awesomesauce.

I'm guess the show's success had something to do with this.

Wow! Yes, I've wanted a great Green Arrow comic for a long time. Jeff Lemire is in my top 5 of current writers. Hawkeye is currently my favorite comic coming from Marvel, now I'll be getting both archer books.

just add the beard and goatee and we're all set..

i hope that Ollie would stick to using the Recurve bow and avoid using the stupid Compound bow. He can really show off how great of an archer he is when using the traditional bow rather than the other which can be tweaked - i feel like he's cheating with it..

i agree with a goatee but not to much beard either.

Damn right! That's what sets him apart.. Having no goatee is like setting him up in a Twilight movie..
