    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Jun 30, 2011

    As I mentioned, this is my favorite Flashpoint tie-in so far. It accomplished everything I could've asked for it to do, and was an extremely enjoyable read. You don't need to know anything coming into the book, though a cursory knowledge of Green Arrow's personal continuity is particularly helpful in catching some of the nuances of the book. I highly recommend this, and am proud to give 5 out of 5 Stars. What're you waiting for-go buy a copy! Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Jun 29, 2011

    This book does a great job of putting the reader in the position of both Queen and McCabe, forcing us to see how we might behave similarly to each, were we to be in their positions. The juxtaposition of levity and profound sadness give this book an emotional range equivalent to a three issue arc. This story may not impact the greater world of Flashpoint in any significant way, but it is definitely worth the read. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 8, 2011

    Green Arrow Industries has some decent ideas to it and works with an idea that definitely makes sense in trying to take weapons that villains have created and to repurpose them for their own needs. While the whole military industrial complex angle makes it a scary notion, it's the kind of thing that can easily be expected to happen and someone like Ollie is the right kind of person under the wrong kind of circumstances. Though the second half of the book is a bit too much action and not enough of the character material. Ollie is a favorite, and this version of him has something to offer, but it's a disjointed one-shot with a lot of potential if it had the space to play with it. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 6, 2011

    There's quite a few problems with this issue including very inconsistent art (four different artists were used on various pages), Queen's lack of prowess with a bow, and a level of preachiness that doesn't come off well on the page. That said, here's a Flashpoint character I'd like to see more of, so why is this title only a one-shot – especially when it seems to just be hitting its stride as the comic comes to a close? Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Jun 29, 2011

    I give this book a big ol' "skip" recommendation, and will continue to do so unless the next issues serve to bring some badly-needed development. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 30, 2011

    Ultimately, there's nothing original or of note here. "Flashpoint" has turned out some fun mini-series and one-shots so far, but "Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries" is not one of them. This is, in many ways, a new definition of a pointless comic. Read Full Review
