    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jun 5, 2013

    Calling it a "conclusion" in solicitations is definitely misleading. If anything, GREEN ARROW #21 feels more like an awesome prelude and serves as a stellar jumping on point. Lemire, Sorrentino and Maiolo have proved month after month they can craft a phenomenal GREEN ARROW tale and this issue is certainly no exception. Sporting a solid script, interesting new plot points and brilliant art, this continues to be one of DC's most entertaining titles and is without question my most anticipated book from the publisher.

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Jun 6, 2013

    DC might have considered restarting this title with a new number one, but they're letting this comic pick up steam via excellent word of mouth, in my opinion. If you haven't been reading Green Arrow, you definitely should be! Now that the set-up is complete, expect big things in the months ahead as the stories take off! I know I can't wait for this book each month! Read Full Review

    This is what a simple creative team change can do. Lemire and Sorrentino have turned a book that almost everyone had given up due to the lapse in quality, into one of the best books on the stands. Move over, Batman, Saga, Daredevil and FF. Make room for Green Arrow. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Jun 7, 2013

    Green Arrow's story continues as he goes on the offensive to track down Komodo. Gone are the trick arrows, the millions of dollars to develop them and all of Queen Industries. Instead, Lemire and Sorrentino have given readers a Green Arrow they deserve. Read Full Review

    Green Arrow #21 has opened the floodgates for an incredible tale to come. It is well known how much Lemire and Sorrentino have done to rejuvenate this series since their installment as creative team. However, the extent of this rejuvenation is really brought to the forefront in this latest issue. Previous fans of the character and those interested in giving it a shot will find #21 to be incredibly interesting and intriguing. Dont be surprised if there is an even greater influx of new readers next month. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jun 5, 2013

    Green Arrow #21 is an ending, but also an awakening to new beginnings. The partnership of Lemire and Sorrentino have spent these last five issues lining up their shot, and they've ultimately hit a bullseye. It's with great anticipation that we shall look forward to the next arc to see what they build on this solid foundation. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 5, 2013

    Sorrentino delivers some of his most competent storytelling in this issue, too. Maybe it's the absence of huge multi-paneled double-page spreads or frantic fight scenes, but there is a clearer sense of character and movement. There's a still a few moments when things look a bit stiff " a guy cuts an arrow in half mid-flight, for example " but overall this issue looks great. It also features the best use of their little color-dropping-out trick, drawing your attention perfectly instead of sticking out like a sore thumb. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jun 10, 2013

    Lemire had a rocky start on this series, and even now its future is a little uncertain, but remarkably enough, he and Sorrentino have managed to bring us to a point where we can enjoy what we're reading and look forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jun 10, 2013

    This just doesn't feel fun anymore. It feels forced. Not everything in a comic book universe has to be tied to fate, destiny, or past events. Sometimes, heroes arise because they need to and not because their great-great-grand uncle was cursed by an evil warlock for generations or somesuch like that. I like Lemire's dialogue; it's quality work and the all characters feel organic. I also love Andrea Sorrentino's artwork. It's honestly just the story that's turning me off of Green Arrow now.
