    1. Kevin Patrick Smith is an American screenwriter, director, as well as a comic book writer, author, and actor He is also the co founder, with Scott Mosier, of View Askew Productions and owner of Jay and Silent Bob s Secret Stash comic and novelty store in Red Bank, New Jersey He also hosts a weekly podcast with Scott Mosier known as SModcast He is also known for participating in long, humorous QA Sessions that are often filmed for DVD release, beginning with An Evening with Kevin Smith.His films are often set in his home state of New Jersey, and while not strictly sequential, they do frequently feature crossover plot elements, character references, and a shared canon in what is known by fans as the View Askewniverse , named after his production company View Askew Productions He has produced numerous films and television projects, including Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II.

    2. Snootchie motherlovin’ bootchies, what a fucking shitshow the first volume of Silent Bob’s Green Arrow was!Ollie Queen’s dead, he’s not dead, he’s sorta dead, there’s another Green Arrow, there’s still another one – who can fucking follow, let alone care?! In TEN absurdly overwritten issues it takes Kevin Smith an age to get around to producing anything resembling a story and when he does it’s somehow even more boring than the meandering nothing that preceded it.I grew up in th [...]

    3. I like Green Arrow. He's not my favorite, but I've always thought he was cool in that crazy eco-warrior liberal kind of way.I thought Smith did a decent job bringing him Back From The Dead. 'Cause you know it can't be all that easy, right? It wasn't an awesome story that blew me away, but there were enough funny quips to keep me distracted from the crazy parts. And there are crazy parts. However, I've come to expect crazy from DC.

    4. Writer Kevin Smith may be Brian Bendis' equal when it came to filling up the dialogue boxes but he paced his ten chapter story briskly that it felt like it was half the number of chapters, even though it had twice the dialogue.That said, it was an enjoyable read and Smith made it reader-friendly, despite the numerous references to DC Comics events that predated this story initial release. Usually, such continuity-heavy backstory would work against a relaunch but it works here since Green Arrow a [...]

    5. Well that was an interesting introduction to Oliver Queen in the DC Comics. You might know him as Green Arrow. I got to know him the backhanded way, through watching the Justice League Unlimited, and drooling. I love a guy who is a master at an art. For Oliver Queen, it's archery. And it takes some bravery to walk around wearing a Robin Hood-like costume in modern times.I like Queen's wit, ably handled by the oh-so witty Kevin Smith. But there was also some real angst and philosophical moments i [...]

    6. Didn't really care for this one. The art didn't click for me and I don't think Kevin Smith is as clever as he thinks he is. Miss.

    7. Check out this review on my blogWhat's the point of Robon Hood's copy cats sharing the stories with god like beings or adn tricksters worthy of ancient myths? I don't know either. Yet somehow, movies made Hawkeye work quite naturally next to likes of Iron Man and Thor and CW's Green Arrow series was enjoyable for about three seasons if you are as forgiving as me. A couple years ago it was proven to me that Hawkeye comics can work so it was only fair to give a chance to his DC counterpart. I wi [...]

    8. I read it because Kevin Smith wrote it. The man is clearly a total comic fanboy, but his homage to a character killed off years ago is surprisingly rich and textured. I read it cover to cover twice back to back. Its *that* good. Sure, there are the usual failings of almost any comic book, but it seems to be something that comes with the territory. Only the darkest of story lines seem impervious (Dark Knight Returns, A Death in the Family), but then again, its been years since I read them, so may [...]

    9. I'm gonna be honest: I didn't like Kevin Smith's run on Batman. I really, really didn't like it. Smith is a brilliant entertainer and an extreme fan (he owns a comic shop and his daughter is named Harley Quinn); I really want to like his comic work. Luckily, this time I did. This is a very good Green Arrow story, especially for an era when Smith was backed into a corner with canon. There wasn't that much he could do, and he expanded the space into a very readable, ensemble piece. Also, laid out [...]

    10. I read this a few years back when it first came out but I found myself wondering if it still held up as a good superhero story, of if I just loved it because I loved Kevin Smith a lot at the time. I was surprised to learn that I liked it more now, almost 10 years later, then I did when I was at the height of my fandom. This book is still maddeningly complex and seeped in the Green Arrow mythology, but even without ever reading any of those comics, I was still able to understand the story easily. [...]

    11. I understand the whimsical nature with which Kevin Smith writes. And on some nostalgic level, it was destined to be used in comics. Quiver, his first foray into the Green Arrow mythos, shows independent moments of brilliance, that unfortunately get tripped up by Smith's unmistakeable banter. In other words, like many writers before him, Smith just doesn't know when to get out of his own way. Maybe I'm being too picky (it doesn't help that I've read comics for nearly 20 years now), but Smith inte [...]

    12. What I wouldn't give to spend an hour inside Kevin Smith's brain, just to find out where his ideas come fromke his resurrection story for Oliver Queen! Holy mother of God, this was the most bizarre plot-twist ever in regards to Ollie's missing 10-year chunk of memories. I thought amnesia, like Smith wanted me to. Let's just say I was wrong! The rest of the book, that seemed mostly superpower/magic/supernatural weirdness free, deals with Satanism, reincarnation (of a sort), the afterlife, and is [...]

    13. The only Green Arrow I had read was the Green Arrow/Black Canary book (which I loved). I was interested in learning more about the character so I picked up Quiver, written by Kevin Smith. This takes place when Ollie returns, having been dead for years.Oliver Queen appears in Star City, thinking he’s only been gone a few weeks, when really, he’s been presumed dead for 10 years. Helping him get to the bottom of this is Black Canary, Arsenal, Connor Hawke, and Batman. As someone who knows nothi [...]

    14. Leído y poseído en la edición de cinco tomitos de Norma Editorial, que conseguí en pack.El promedio de los capítulos da claramente tres, pero lo llevo a cuatro porque, aunque se trata de una resurrección medio tirada de los pelos e innecesaria, la calidad de los diálogos y el buen uso que hace Smith de la fauna DC logran poner este Carcaj por encima de varios comics de superhéroes, tanto actuales como de la época en la que se editó este.De todos modos, con el Batman de Smith también m [...]

    15. I gotta say I was very impressed with this book. Had me hooked from start to finish. It can't be easy to try and bring a character back from the dead, especially a high profile one as Green Arrow but Kevin Smith did it beautifully. One thing I love about Smith in the comic book world is you can tell just how much of a fan he is. Throwing every character he wants in this. Like we know he's a big Batman fan and who is in the book the most besides Ollie???? I felt the story was very well rounded co [...]

    16. Fun! Although it starts out a bit slow, things pick up fairly quickly. Green Arrow is dead, so who's that running around Star City with the bow and arrow then? There are nods to all sorts of classic DC stories throughout. Smith eventually brings everything to a satisfying conclusion. Good stuff!

    17. Ummmmmmmmm. I was fully expecting to give this a four star review but the last third was just too much. Like it went from a weird but fun time to NOPE NOPE NOPE in one page flat. Soooo yeah.

    18. This graphic novel encompasses the first 10 issues of the newly reinvented Green Arrow, written by actor/director Kevin Smith. Having previously been killed while attempting a rescue, the book deals with the death and return of Oliver Queen, the first Green Arrow. Kevin Smith manages to successfully blend urban grit, the supernatural & the spiritual.There are a host of other DC heroes making cameos, including Batman, Etrigan, Black Canary and The Spectre. Kevin Smith also adds his trademark [...]

    19. In the introduction to Green Arrow, the collected edition I read, Kevin Smith acknowledges some complaints he's received regarding Quiver. One being, that it relies too heavily on continuity, which is true. I love Kevin Smith, but Quiver didn't really make so much sense to me as a new reader of Oliver Queen. I mean, I get that there was some weird mumbo jumbo going on with Green Lantern, but otherwise, meh.The mystery was pretty gruesome, and the crude humor and gay jokes surprised me. I don't r [...]

    20. Oliver Queen regresa de la muerte y vuelve a sus andadas.Mientras aún investigan la razón de su resurrección, Oliver, quien estuvo mucho tiempo ausente a causa de su muerte, no pierde tiempo y empieza a observar los cambios que la ciudad ha tenido en su ausencia.Junto a Connor (su hijo biológico y actual Green Arrow II), y Roy Harper (Hijo adoptivo, primer Speedy y actual Red Arrow o Arsenal)combate el crimen y rescata a una chica llamada Mia Dearden, quien se convertirá en una hija adoptiv [...]

    21. In his introduction to this trade paperback, Kevin Smith mentions a couple of things that have been said to him considering this run of Green Arrow. among the criticisms were the fact that it was too talkative for a comic book, and that it was too full of references to the DC universe.Both of those things are true.There are indeed quite a few references to previous runs of Green Arrow or just other series altogether (Justice League, Batman, Superman), but it didn't impair the understanding of th [...]

    22. fuckin' brilliant book!i've been a fan of Kevin Smith since i first saw Mallrats when i was 13, and just when i thought his films were beginning to weaken, my faith in him was renewed when i finished this book tonight. it contains dialogue typical of him, which i've always loved, and the plot is full of twists, turns, DCU allusions and general excellence.if you call yourself a Kevin Smith fan, read this. if you call yourself a comics fan, read this. if you do not fall into either category but ju [...]

    23. I don't know much about Green Arrow except what I've seen on the TV show 'Arrow'. But I really liked this book! It didn't feel angsty like the show, and was generally a fun romp all together. I'm not familiar with much of the DC universe beyond the basic Batman and Superman, but this was definitely an enjoyable read, even without being familiar with the universe and the mythos.

    24. This is definitely a lengthy graphic novel but if you're a fan of Kevin Smith it's definitely a must-read This was my first Green Arrow attempt and I would say it's a success Seems like a cool, genuine enough character for me to like and enjoy to read much more of his stories, Kevin Smith's too.

    25. My first foray into the Green Arrow storyline. This relaunch Picks up after Queen's death and for the first half teases an explanation of his return, with the third quarter providing. The ending seemed a little rushed but closed the story well. Artwork is fantastic, would recommend to anyone wanting to start a DC arc.

    26. Having never read a Green Arrow book before this was definitely interesting. I also love Kevin Smith, so that probably helped a lot. In this book Green Arrow literally gets the chance to start his life over. It will be interesting to see what he does with that chance as the series continues.

    27. Having never read the Green Arrow before was not a drawback. Both the story and dialog were fantastic. Recommended for those who like superhero comics of all shapes and sizes.

    28. Interesting. 80s Green arrow meets 90s Green Arrow and the rest of the JLA. It's nice to see the fun, niave Green Arrow back even if it was just for one story.

    29. This book was amazing. This was a very enjoyable read. Some spoilers.The basic story is that Ollie comes back from the death and he has to deal with getting situated in the world, a few inner (and outer) demons, and gets to have quality time with his son. The art is starting too look a bit 90s dated and I did not like how K Smith couldn't come up with a better explanation for having Connor show up in the end, but overall it's a great read.
