DC has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Green Arrow #13, due in stores on Wednesday.
You can call your retailer to reserve a copy, or pre-order a digital version here.
Unlike on TV, Oliver Queen isn't mayor...and the local election has turned ugly. A string of muders are seemingly tied to Emiko Queen, and it's up to Green Arrow and Black Canary to find the real killer before somebody catches up with her.
The issue is written by Benjamin Percy and features art by Otto Schmidt. The issue will feature a main cover by W. Scott Forbes and a variant by Neal Adams.
Black Canary, of course, has been a primary player in Green Arrow since the Rebirth relaunch but had been killed on season 4 of Arrow and just reappeared in the series with the midseason finale last week.
"When I took over Green Arrow with issue #41 [of The New 52 series], one of the things I wanted to do was place Canary in the series eventually. I'm so glad this Rebirth opportunity came up, because I wasn't allowed to put her in there right away, but I'd hoped that this moment would come. So I was cycling Oliver through all of these different relationships so that when Black Canary came into the fray again, the relationship would matter. That the reader could understand this is what he's been pining for," explained writer Ben Percy. "That this person fills a cavity in his life. I can't say too much except that they are at odds with each other in the beginning and then will eventually overcome their differences in a team-up that will hopefully be as adventurous as it is romantically alluring."
