    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 2, 2014

    Thankfully, GREEN ARROW continues to prove why it's one of my favorite titles. The second chapter of Broken is a thrilling experience that juggles a nice blend of drama, action, and levity. On top of that, it leaves us on a note that'll almost certainly make you gasp. You can see the big incident coming a mile away, but the execution of the scene is tremendously effective and it has me totally clueless about what'll happen. Sorrentino and Maiolo continue to impress and then some -- I just can't praise this duo enough. They really are one of the best art teams around right now and we're very lucky that they're working with such a talented writer, too. Now comes the hard part: waiting to see what happens next.

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jul 3, 2014

    Overall, this was a phenomenal piece of creative brilliance, both in terms of plot development and story pacing, as well as the visual aspects of the book. This creative team has demonstrated time and time again what others working with established major character properties should aspire to. Everything about this series feels fresh and unique, while still retaining appropriately subtle connections to the story background of crime, mystery, and superheroes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 6, 2014

    Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino just don't know how to make a bad issue of Green Arrow.  This month they give us great action, dialogue and Emiko.  She is so good and is poised to be a breakout character.  I'm sad their run is coming to an end, but I'm so glad I was around to enjoy every bit of it.  Highly Recommended.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jul 3, 2014

    Green Arrow remains one of DC's best series with Broken looking to be yet another massive feather in Lemire and Sorrentino's cap. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Jul 7, 2014

    The only gripe I can muster is that the colorist switches for a few panels which makes one of the pages look awkward. The colors are sharper and the characters are less textured. It's very noticeable on the page, but a speck in the overall comic. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Jul 3, 2014

    If Lemire's writing and Sorrentino's art had not hooked you already, it will after this issue. On top of an excellent script, Green Arrow comes packed with some of the best art and colors in all of comics. Read Full Review

    DC Collectors - Kort Johnson Aug 6, 2014

    Sorrentino's art does not disappoint, as usual, with great design work and energetic fight scenes. Marcelo Maiolo's coloring really stands out this issue as we jump back and forth between timelines and watch the shadowing and hues transition with it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 2, 2014

    Andrea Sorrentino's art is as strong as ever, full of striking design work and energetic choreography. But this issue is also a great showcase for Marcelo Maiolo's colors. Maiolo's deftly transitions the issue between past and present by alternating warm hues and heavy shadows. And his trademark use of washed-out, mono-chromatic panels to highlight key action beats works especially well during the battle sequences this month. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 2, 2014

    Perhaps for the first time since the reboot, and to a lesser extent since Lemire soft-reboot in the middle of that, Green Arrow is really starting to feel like a book that has a big story to tell. Having firmly established an identity for the New 52 version of Green Arrow, Lemire is determined to never let him rest for a moment, and this makes for fascinating reading. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Jul 3, 2014

    Overall, this was another great issue. Though the parts with Emiko felt predictable and familiar, the issue contained plenty as action that was balanced out with some plot driven narrative. There are lots of developments and even a couple jaw dropping moments. If you a fan of trick arrows and super heroics then this is a definite must read. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Jul 8, 2014

    Overall this arc is coming full circle, while this issue is definitely not the best of the run, it still is very good and it is absolutely interesting to see where Lemire and Sorrentino take it as they wrap up their run. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Jul 8, 2014

    I really love Andrea Sorrentino's art, so that is a plus to me, but I know the art can be divisive for others. Other than that, this book is pretty great. It might fall into the problem eventually of just making everything too dire and sucking all the fun out of the proceedings, but right now Lemire has hit a comfortable middle ground.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 7, 2014

    "Green Arrow" #33 is fun, and I'm sad to see Lemire and Sorrentino go. I'm keeping an open mind for the new creative team and I hope that they do well. But the pair that's on the book right now has been doing something special. If DC decided to release a hardcover omnibus of their entire run on the title together, I know I'd buy it. I doubt I'd be alone. Read Full Review

    An admirable feat of continuity massage from Lemire, although the story doesn't go much of anywhere. Read Full Review
