Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters

    (DC, 1987-1989)
and 1987 DC Comics, Inc.

Created by ace adventure-writer Mike Grell, The Longbow Hunters is widely recognized as one of the finest Green Arrow stories. It begins with Green Arrow stalking a slasher who preyed on prostitutes. But when Arrow finally found his quarry, he was in for a surprise: the slasher had been killed by a single, black arrow. Apparently, there was a new archer in town.

But the slasher was not the only victim. A growing list of middle-aged men were being found dead, killed by similar arrows. The only common factor seemed to be that the victims were middle-aged men with no military records.

Arrow followed the trail, eventually coming face-to-face with a beautiful young woman named Shado who wielded a very deadly bow. Inevitably, their lives would intertwine, and Arrow would find himself drawn into her personal quest for revenge.
