If you like the Green Arrow series whether in comics or the hit CW show ‘Arrow’ *Bonus points for being a fan of one of his enemies Count Vertigo*, then you’re in for a big treat. Vertigo made his New 52 debut in the pages of Green Arrow in May 2013 where he attempted to make Arrow’s life miserable. He also made his debut on live action television on ‘Arrow’ but this time, he is a major drug dealer of the drug called ‘Vertigo’. On the ‘What’s New in the New 52’ column, Count Vertigo’s New 52 origin would be told in the Villains Month issue of Green Arrow scheduled to hit stands next week.
Bob Harras elaborates:
“In next week’s GREEN ARROW #23.1: COUNT VERTIGO, Count Vertigo’s origin will be revealed. You’ll follow his journey from his homeland of Vlatava and meet his family of disgraced nobles to an experimental orphanage in Vancouver to the present day. Here, you’ll not only witness the horrific and tragic birth of his powers, but you’ll also see what triggered his transition into a super-villain.
From the original series creative team of writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino, Count Vertigo’s one-shot is a dark and twisted look into the psyche of this brutal character who’ll be playing an integral role in GREEN ARROW for a long time to come.”
