“MURDER ON THE EMPIRE EXPRESS” part two! There’s no business like the war business, and business is booming-or it will be once the world learns of the brutal assassination of one of its most critical leaders at the hands of…Green Arrow?! Trapped with a killer hundreds of feet below the ocean, Oliver Queen must solve a murder before his undersea voyage ends-and with it, peace in our time.

    The two-part Murder on the Empire Express sets a great new standard for Percy's Green Arrow run and will not easily be topped. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 16, 2016

    Green Arrow #11 is a thrill ride of an issue that is as entertaining as any good Hollywood summer blockbuster. Percy and Ferreyra are a great team and their collaboration here is rock solid. This is one of the best comics DC is putting out right now, and it is a great time to be a Green Arrow fan. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye Nov 18, 2016

    The climax was what you hoped for, again featuring incredible teamwork by Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Diggle, and a wonderful final moment with the two lovebirds. Although small, this arc was action-packed and tense, and reintroduced an integral character back into the Green Arrow mythos. It's a comforting feeling to know that this book will come out and consistently nail the tone that Percy & crew worked so hard on setting, and issue 11 embodies that perfectly: heavy action, sharp dialogue, breath-taking artwork, and a story you can lose yourself in.

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 17, 2016

    Green Arrow #11 does leave the story wide open for further adventures, especially since Broderick is still running Queen Industries. So whilst this part of the story is over, we've no doubt that Ollie has some cleaning up to do when it comes to Seattle. It's great to finally see the team back in the city. They spent far too long living Oliver's island adventure again. The series has shown it can be highly entertaining, so hopefully this issue is the start of getting it back on the right track again. Will we see him reunite with Emi? Afterall, a lot of this is her fault essentially. That's going to be one awkward family reunion.Green Arrow #11 is a fun filled adventure that promises bigger things on the horizon. Don't miss out. Read Full Review

    Of the important issues of this new Rebirth run, Empire Express wasn't pivotal, but it was an enjoyable mini-arc with great characterization and beautiful art. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a good issue. Despite some issues with Black Canary, the art is amazing otherwise. There's a lot of great dialogue and action that make this a fun issue. I recommend reading it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Nov 16, 2016

    While a bit less substantial narrative-wise than I would have liked, the finale of “Murder on the Empire Express” stands a breezy and explosive outing for the Emerald Archer and his pretty bird. Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra have hit a nice groove by this point in their working relationship and it comes through in the work. Though not exactly a game-changer when it comes to the overall story, Green Arrow #11 still provides plenty of the heart and action that fans have come to expect from their tenure on “Rebirth.” Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Nov 16, 2016

    This issue was more of a means to an end, just to get the team to return back to Seattle in an interesting way and other than my complaint, the issue is really just alright. I have quite enjoyed all of Percy’s two parters, however I want to see a longer arc like the first one, as I really enjoyed that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 16, 2016

    Ben Percy continues his story that started with a ridiculous premise and continued here by giving us no real information, but expecting us to care nonetheless.  I didn't care at all, but I did like Juan Ferreyra's art, but was it enough for me to give it high marks?  Check below for the answer.  Spoiler alert...It wasn't.

    I enjoyed this issue more than the previous one, with the emphasis on political undertones being minimized. I think the lead in to the next arc about Ollie confronting his company will be a great story, with this being a good finish.

    [ART: 9.4 | STORY: 8.5 | WRITING: 8.1 | TOTAL: 8.7 (~8.5)] This was a really great two-part story for me. Ferreyra is probably my favourite artist on the book and he didn't disappoint this issue. I love the premise and I think it was really well executed. Definitely looking forward to the next arc!

    A strong end to the train-arc but not quite as strong as the great last issue.

    Stunning art wasn't enough to make up for a mediocre-at-best story. Percy's game has gotten pretty weak since the first story arc ended, and this story while a bit of fun was really pretty shallow and predictable. There wasn't really much character development here and whilst there was some preachy dialogue it did little to add to any overarching sense of intrigue which could mark the book out as unique. Some incredible panels do well to distract, but ultimately Green Arrow is going to need a much richer story to carry out the Rebirth promises of this Queen/ Canary partnership. So far I've been underwhelmed.

    Standard adventure - but underwhelming wrap up development, sonic scream logic, rushed art shortcuts.

    Comic Book Review (5.5/10) “Mediocre” Green Arrow #11 “Murder Incorporated” Writer: Benjamin Percy Art, Color, and Cover: Juan Ferreyra Plot: “Eddie” the assassin has just assassinated the diplomat Amin Mustafa, but the security detail believe that Green Arrow aka Oliver “Ollie” Queen was involved. Can Ollie, Dinah, and Diggle catch Eddie before he gets away? This is just one long Scooby Doo chase sequence complete with the zany and clichéd circumstances. Oh no - the assassin is getting away, but the authorities are trying to arrest Ollie and his friends instead, so Ollie and his friends have to fight the authorities to even get to Eddie. Oh no - there is a bomb that Eddie planted and will destroy the train, but the back car is not moving! Someone has to go unhook it for the train to start moving! When things are constantly moving like this like a “Transformers” live action movie without much story telling or character development, it becomes a jumbled, mediocre, mess that the audience stops caring about and that is where I was at mentally while reading this book. It’s not bad, but it’s not particularly good either. In fact this book was so mediocre in its story telling that I completely forgot about it the moment I put the comic book down. The ONE saving grace of this book is the incredible looking art, and Ferreyra delivers some gorgeous looking panels again. Although the story telling might be one clichéd chase sequence after another clichéd chase sequence, the art is anything but clichéd. In fact, after finishing the book, I wanted a book without the word bubbles, because then at least I could enjoy the great looking art and maybe try figuring out what the characters are saying and that activity would have been a lot more fun than actually reading this uninspired issue.
