After the success of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, DC decided to create another mature themed series. Led by Mike Grell , Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters gave us a darker, harder Green Arrow ridding himself of his trick arrows and donning a new, more antiquated costume. Grell even insisted on never calling the hero "Green Arrow" within the actual pages of the comic, he also introduced new supporting characters for Arrow, including the Japanese archer Shado.

The success of this series would lead the Emerald Archer into his next volume Green Arrow (1988) that ran for 11 years and gained a surge of new fans.
