Green Arrow #75

Green Arrow #75
What??? That's it? It's over? Why? This series has consistently been one of my favorites over the last several years. Even when their own writers were screwing up Batman and Superman, even the Flash, this series maintained a sense of constancy throughout. It was a touchstone. A sign of just how good the DCU could be. Sure, there were bad parts, most notably giving Mia HIV. But that seems to have gone by the wayside. Perhaps in the NEW DCU she's no longer infected?
Another high point is the art. Even when the pencils changed hands, the art retained the qualities that made it so readable in the beginning of the series.
But what's this? After we were promised that Ollie + Dinah forever, we don't even get an answer here? We have to wait for another miniseries? And why do we need a series about Green Arrow: Year One? We know how he started. And there was the Year One annual a few years back to refresh us on it. And he's referred back to it many times. I'd go so far as to say that we need a Green Arrow: Year One miniseries like we need a miniseries about Daredevil's father...waitaminit...darn.
I just hope that DC editorial makes the right decision here and allows GA to finally find some happiness in the arms of the only woman he's ever truly loved.
