Green Arrow Vol. 2: Here There Be Dragons by Mike Grell
Cover Concept by Lorenzo Princi, 5 August 2015

The serial adventures of Green Arrow in Seattle continue in Mike Grell's gritty run. However unlike Hunter's Moon (the previous volume), Here There Be Dragons is a singular story arc and solid follow up to the pilot story, The Longbow Hunters.

As Oliver begins hunting down those behind the Tong (Chinese Crime Syndicate) smuggling operation it leads to a reunion with Shado, a mysterious archer he encountered in The Longbow Hunters and who has been in his thoughts and dreams ever since. Shado's story takes the fore as we learn about her past and why she is now on the run from the Yakuza.

Here There Be Dragons is the most complete Green Arrow arc by Grell, a tale of honour and redemption which explore a complex relationship triangle between Oliver, Dinah and Shado as well as Shado's complex and tragic family history.
