Green Arrow – The Death and Life of Oliver Queen | Comics

Returning from a usual sour date, Oliver Queen hands out some money to a homeless kid and his mother on his way back home. As the dollar bill flew from his hands, the boy's mother goes to get it while telling the boy to stay put but then got mysteriously abducted. That night, when a hooded figure was taking the kid from street, an arrow hits the nearby wall and Seattle's very own vigilante hero Green Arrow reveals himself to the stranger.

After a brief scuffle between them, the mysterious person turns out to be another vigilante hero Black Canary and they both takes the kid to Oliver Queen's apartment for some nourishment. The boy tells them that the Underground Men have took his mom and the duo then took him to a homeless campsite called "The Jungle" to meet his father. The Underground Men strikes again to kidnap more homeless people as Arrow and Canary follow their trail to discover a secret underground human auction in progress.
