Swatchmen: Onyx Returns To Form In Green Arrow #29

onyx2 onyx3

We mentioned how the character of Onyx, appearing in Green Arrow last month was looking a little on the pale side compared to her previous appearances in DC comics. When pressed, writer Jeff Lemire set the record straight.

Well, as of this week, we get to see Onyx again in the new issue of Green Arrow, and she has returned to a darker skin colour.


Wonder if the earlier issue will be amended for the collection?

Swatchmen is an irregular look at how the ethnicity of characters in comicbooks varies from one appearance or iteration to another.
