Just finishing up reading my run of Green Arrow volume 2 (starts with Mike Grell).  Really enjoyed this series including the end where Connor Hawke had taken over the mantel.

 

I liked the fact that it was street level crime with very little meta humans involved.  Also liked the fact it was more realistic with the Green Arrows punching holes in people as opposed to boxing gloves and bolo arrows.

 

While the beginning of the series dealt with Oliver's relationship with Dinah Lance I didn't mind that as it made the story more realistic.

 

The one downside which I really didn't enjoy was where they retold his origin in one of the annuals where Oliver is a total dick hitting the employees and when he falls off the boat he first ends up on an island with a mass murderer (who might be a meta-human?).  That addition was just complete shit and unnecessary.
