Benjamin Percy's work on the newest volume of Green Arrow, along with artists Otto Schmidt, Juan Ferreyra and Stephen Byrne, has revitalized the character into one of the most exciting heroes in the DC Universe and made his eponymous title one of the standout comics from DC's Rebirth initiative.

Next month, Oliver Queen journeys back to the island where he first became Green Arrow, and he's bringing Black Canary with him. Ahead of the release of Green Arrow #8, DC Comics has provided a first look at the pages, as well as a variant cover by comics legend Neal Adams.

Fans of the television show Arrow know all too well how important the island is to Green Arrow's mythology, as the show takes every opportunity to return and explore the dense forests and sandy beaches. However, it's not an aspect of the character that's been touched on as much since the beginning of The New 52, and trapping Ollie and Dinah on its shores early in their relationship is sure to bring out the best and worst of one of DC's most iconic couples.
