Green Arrow has lost his fortune, and now he is hitting the road to save America in Green Arrow Vol. 5: Hard-Traveling Hero.
They're called the Ninth Circle--a criminal bank that funds war, terror and carnage, all in the name of racking up profits. They stole Oliver Queen's company from him and nearly destroyed Seattle, only to rebuild it in their own image as Star City. Now they've got their sights set on the rest of the United States.
But Ollie is having none of it. As Green Arrow, he's setting out across the U.S. to piece together the clues that will lead him to the Ninth Circle, one brawl at a time. And though Green Arrow's never been much of a team player, his travels find him crossing paths with heroes like Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Superman. But before they can team up, Ollie will have to make amends for the jerk he's been in the past.
Even with the full might of the Justice League behind him, can Green Arrow take down an organization so powerful they're seemingly above the law? Or will his quest just paint a target on his back so big that even Ollie can't escape it?

When Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Kid Flash answer this brash new Boy Wonder’s call for help, they find themselves on the front lines of a war between Damian and his immortal grandfather, Ra’s al Ghul. The entire League of Assassins and the elite Demon’s Fist are prepared to move against these young heroes, all to claim Robin for their own. And if these new Titans are toppled, so be it. The stakes are crystal clear: if they win, they live. If they lose, Robin will join the forces of evil—and the rest of them are history. But with Damian in charge, sometimes death doesn’t look so bad…

The mad titan Thanos makes his world-shattering return, and his armies fire the opening shots of a galactic war that will be fought both on Earth and in deep space - with our heroes caught between both battles! As Thanos' secrets are revealed, the Inhumans' city of Attilan falls, and the Illuminati find themselves on the front line! And as every Origin Site on Earth goes active, the Builders enter the Marvel Universe. But can the Avengers return to Earth in time to save it, when betrayal in the Galactic Council has left them prisoners of war? Galactic empires will fall as Thanos' crazed plans come to fruition!
For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulse and precariously stacked carbon code memory. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
