    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 3, 2013

    Just three issues in and this title has skyrocketed to the top of my pull list. This is without question one of the best ongoings DC comics is currently offering. The story is engaging and the dynamic visuals are stellar. It doesn't matter if you don't like Green Arrow -- this will turn you into a fan. Go read this book. Now!Also, is it just me, or does it look like Emiko Lacroix could be Constantine Drakon Jr? If he won't make it into the New 52, I'm more than happy to see his super-speeding badassery transferred into this little package of death. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 4, 2013

    This was yet another amazing issue from Lemire, and the development of the story has been handled brilliantly. This issue is also very action packed, having lots of suspense, and having a very dramatic tone. I'd highly recommend this issue, as it was truly fantastic, and I'd also recommend the other two issues in this series by Lemire, as the story's been amazing, and I for one really look forward to reading more.

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Apr 6, 2013

    From a title than even the most devoted of Arrowites were struggling to stay loyal to, Lemire and Sorrentino have hit all the right targets to deliver a must-read book several months in a row now. We hope this partnership lasts for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 6, 2013

    This is just a really entertaining comic. Lemire is doing a great job building up Komodo as a villain, and it's always fun to see our heroes pushed to the end of their rope. It'll mean Green Arrow's payback will be all the more exciting. And there's a definite sense that Lemire is building up to something great. He's weaving a lot of mythology into Ollie's island, and it feels like he knows exactly where he's going. I bet he has some really great ideas in store for us. I love street-level heroes, when their humanity is stronger than their superheroism, and Lemire and Sorrentino have that down pat. Like I've said before, this is like a serious take on Matt Fraction's Hawkeye. Though I don't know how serious it can be when Ollie survives so many damned arrows. Seriously, the guy gets shot half a dozen times in the span of, like, five minutes! Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Apr 3, 2013

    The excess use of arrows somewhat hampers the art, too. The use of focus panels was cleverly done in previous issues, but here it just points out every single arrow that sinks into somebody's arm/leg/shoulder/head. What was once a storytelling technique is now equivalent to a blood splatter replay cam. Luckily, Lemire's talent for creating tension, expanding a mystery, and adding layers to a villain are in full effect, so there's plenty to keep you coming back to this series for more.

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Apr 5, 2013

    If you want a book about an archer, read Hawkguy, if you want a second book about an archer than give this current run of Green Arrow a shot, Jeff Lemire seems to know what he's doing! Read Full Review

    It's clear that Lemire and Sorrentino are finally getting comfortable in this new outfit they've chosen for themselves, which goes a long way to looking good in it. Read Full Review
