Sorry about the technical delays on this folks....
DC has announced that Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino will be leaving Green Arrow come October, and will be replaced by Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, Arrow writer Ben Sokolowski and artist Daniel Sampere. The creative team's first issue will be #35.
Sokolowski has stated that he wants to return Green Arrow back to his roots as an "opinionated, liberal Robin Hood esque" hero, and that several characters from the show would be appearing in the title, but not necessarily as mirrors of their television counterparts.
Lemire and Sorrentino's run on Green Arrow has been one of DC's better books as of late, but Kreisberg isn't a terrible writer, and Sampere isn't a bad artist either. I had more to say about this, but after trying to publish an article about the topic five times, I just don't care that much anymore. The LA Times did a pretty good job talking about the new direction of the book and its relation to Arrow, so just read that if you want more info.

Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
