It’s every young man’s hope to eventually emerge from his father’s shadow and stand alone as his own person — only Connor Hawke’s dad casts a very long shadow, indeed.
Connor, son of Oliver Queen, a.k.a. Green Arrow, gets the perfect opportunity to stand on his own after being invited to a competition in Shanghai to decide the world’s greatest archer. Best of all: Dad didn’t even make the short list.
However when the competition turns deadly, Connor finds he’s more interested in keeping himself and his allies alive than in any trophy.
Chuck Dixon, the writer who penned some of Connor’s most memorable adventures as the second Green Arrow, teams up with talented artist Derec Donovan to deliver a satisfying adventure that doesn’t quite hit the bull’s eye, but comes close enough.
