Just wanted to say one thing.

You're not alone. And you're right.

Winick DID drop the sales on Green Arrow like a stone. Yes, they leveled off and have been steady for the last 2 years but nobody seems to remember that the book once sold over 50,000 issues a month. Nobody seems to think it can do better than just over 30,000 a month now.

Here's the figures in case you'd like something to quote for your letter.

I've written quite a bit about the subject of Winick's destroying Green Arrow on my blog and at ComicsNexus.com. I hope you'll stop by and take a look. Cheers!
