GREEN ARROW EDITOR ADAM SCHLAGMAN TALKS RISE AND FALL
But before we pass the mic to Adam, let me dust off ye olde Spoiler Warning: Do not click below until you've read the final issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE.
Done? What a finale, huh?
OK, take it away, Adam:
In JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE #7 Green Arrow murdered Prometheus -- but it's not over yet! With his city lying in devastation, his former sidekick dismembered and his granddaughter dead, the Emerald Archer continues to seek out his own brand of Justice from those responsible for the tragedies that have befallen him.
Hitting stores March 10th, JUSTICE LEAGUE: RISE & FALL SPECIAL #1 showcases Ollie embracing his role as a hunter. Green Arrow's a protector -- but what happens when you fail as hero? Ollie's always been a man of the people, the first one to speak up. Now he's saying enough is enough and is taking matters into his own hands.
J.T. Krul (Blackest Night: Titans) is a fast-rising DC superstar writer that really understands our characters, their motivations and their beliefs. He is one of the architects behind the RISE AND FALL event, weaving the SPECIAL, which serves as a launching point for the event, with the help of the immensely talented Mike Mayhew (Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps), Diogenes Neves (Black Lantern Green Arrow) and Fabrizio Fiorentino (Titans: Villains for Hire).
But the hunter becomes the hunted in GREEN ARROW #31 on sale March 17th, as the FALL OF GREEN ARROW begins. I personally guarantee that Ollie's life will be drastically changed following these two issues, as the Justice League of America comes after the Emerald Archer. What are the World's Greatest Heroes' thoughts on becoming judge, jury and executioner? The Flash (Barry Allen) once killed Zoom, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) went insane when his city was destroyed and what does Black Canary, his wife, believe is just? Find out in this engrossing tale told by J.T. Krul and up-and-coming artist Federico Dallocchio (Faces of Evil: Prometheus).
JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE RISE OF ARSENAL is a four issue miniseries penned by J.T. Krul and drawn by Geraldo Borges that starts on March 24th. Roy Harper's lost his arm, his daughter and now a chance at revenge. What does Red Arrow think of his former mentor's killing spree, and what dark path is he journeying toward that even his friends and teammates won't be able to prevent?
James Robinson, the brains behind Cry For Justice, with artist extraordinaire Mark Bagley (Trinity) brings the Rise and Fall to the JLA in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #43, being released on March 31st. When word of Ollie's murder reaches the current league, will they take up arms with Ollie or will they put him in handcuffs? The JLA reaches another turning point as the guilt from freeing Prometheus reaches critical mass.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THE CHARACTER DRIVEN EVENT OF THE SPRING!
THIS IS THE RISE AND FALL!
