All three issues published (glossy, colour throughout) of comic book miniseries published in 1987 by DC Comics, written and drawn by Mike Grell, and featuring the character Green Arrow. This mini-series heralded the relaunch of the GREEN LANTERN character in a new series.
''in 1987, DC Comics launched the character into a new ongoing title as part of their mature audience comic line. Written and illustrated by Mike Grell, the revamp was launched with GREEN ARROW: THE LONGBOW HUNTERS mini-series. In this three-issue prestige format limited series, a routine adventure against a group of drug runners led to tragedy as the Black Canary was captured and brutally tortured. In response, Oliver murders his girlfriend's attackers. The mini-series would also introduce the enigmatic female Japanese archer, Shado, whose family had suffered in a World War II internment camp. Shado would later rape Oliver and become pregnant by him, producing a son named Robert after his father''. So not many laughs per issue, I would guess.
