I am more so a Bat-family kind of guy, but I have bought a few issues of GA (to be fair, they had batman, redhood, and speedy, how could I resist). Ever since I was a kid, and I first watched Justice League Unlimited, and saw my first glimpse of GA's awesomeness, i never could get enough. When i started buying comics around a year and a half ago, i picked up a Green Arrow issue, and didnt really care for it. The redesign made him look younger than I am used to, and there was no sign of a Speedy, plus no mention of Roy (whom i am also a fan of even before RHTO). So i ignored the new series, and from what I can tell I was right to do so. But now, Jeff Lemiere, a very talented and popular writer, is taking over the series with a supreme artist Andrea Sorrentino, and they are even doing a bit of a reboot with his new 52 character even after the atrocious 0 issue. There is no way I am passing this up. But I have looked into the past trades, and some stories caught my eye but i am no expert on the subject so I would like some advice.
What trades should I pick up that feature the Emerald Archer?
I almost picked up a Green Arrow/Black Canary trade because it featured Mia Dearden as well as Roy, (i dont particularly care for Connor Hawke) I am also a huge fan of Dinah's and Oliver's relationship, so anything with that would also be appreciated.
but i didnt have the cash. Would that be a good place to start since it is relatively recent, or are there better stories such as Year One, that is better in quality?
