_h.i.v. positive_ (Green Arrow No. 44, Jan 05)

I picked up this issue of Green Arrow at a Half Price Books location, I think originally based on the striking cover art, and of course the title intrigued me. Unlike most comics, it delivers on its cover. It's a story about a family dealing with one member's HIV status, and the fact that the head of the family is Green Arrow, experienced superhero, just heightens the sense of helplessness. I thought this was really well done and I hope to find some of the following issues someday. I don't usually pick up individual issues of a comic, and I've rarely read any Green Arrow.
