    Percy tweeted about it. He said he had a story planned about Connor that will never see the light of day now. Still possible the next creative team will pick up on it, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Hopefully that will change tonight, when both Marvel and DC's solicits for May should drop.

    According to Newsarama, Marvel's solicits aren't coming till Thursday and there's no confirmation about DC's time yet.

    It was a good issue, but bringing in Drakon at the end was like adding salt to the 'no-Connor' wound.

    I guess it sucks for Connor fans that Percy actually did want to bring him back and just didn't end up getting a chance to. Who knows how the next writer will feel about him? I personally way prefer Ollie to Connor, but I do like Connor and I do like the relationship between the two of them, so I hope we can see him soon.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the character Oliver Queen. I stuck with the book right up to the DCNu, but HATED the reboot.
    As soon as Connor Hawke shows up, I'll start buying the title again.
    He was another great character shafted by the New 52.

    I like Ollie well enough and, in the right hands, his kind of being an awful person can work well, but he's close to the bottom of my Top 100 DC heroes, while Connor sits in my Top 15.

    Why would you hurt yourself like that?

    My stance at this point as well.

    Ollie used to be in my top five and has dropped like a brick the past several years. It’s made me realize I really only enjoyed Green Arrow written by two people : Mike Grell and Judd Winick. Those are the only Green Arrow books I have kept in my collection.

    Really? Not a fan of the Kevin Smith run?

    I started with Mike Grell and followed the series and still liked it when Chuck Dixon took over and introduced Connor even though Oliver was killed. I liked what Kevin Smith did with his issues and the return of Oliver. I love Brad Meltzer's books but I felt he was weak during his short run. I was surprised I like Judd Winick's run. I liked Sterling when he wrote Green Arrow after Brightest Day and I hated he left to write 52's Captain Atom. I have not read enouh of GA during 52 to say I did or didn't like the run and I have the first 30 issues of the current series but I have not read them yet ( they were not on the stands at BAM so I only recently got them at a comics store) so I don't know if I like the new series or not. Edit-I said Sterling but meant J.T. Krul. Also I forgot about the Green Arrow and Black Canary series by Andrew Kreisberg. It was okay but not some of GA's best.

    I loved the Winick run also. I'd add Smith and Lemire to my top three list. I've liked Percy's run a lot too. Your post made me really think about it too, and I realized Ollie is a really tough character to make work. He has to be out for social justice without being preachy, seem like a man of the people while being super rich, be kind of jerkish but also lovable.. Any one of those things is tough to balance but all three at the same time must be hell on a writer.
