    This issue he portrays a reckless, violent Canary, though her feelings are understandable. Shes got friends and family of exceptional skill to be smart for her, and its great to see just how respected and loved she is. While Im not all that sure about his ability to depict a sane Canary, Im fine with his Green Lantern and Batman, who are her main allies this issue. Thanks mostly to Chiangs undeniable talent, Ill definitely check back in next issue in hope of the best. But it could really go either way at this point. Read Full Review

    This first issue has some major pitfalls, many of which can't really be discussed. Still, Winick has a better handle on both Ollie Queen and Dinah Lance than many readers give him credit for. Fans of either character will probably find something to enjoy here, even if Green Arrow/Black Canary #1 doesn't make a strong case for its own continued existence. Read Full Review

    While this issue is riddled with problems and plot-holes, I hope that Winick really explains what is going on, because at the heart of this story, hes got something interesting happening. While the soul of the story is interesting, unfortunately, there are just too many problems with this issue to make it really worth the cover price. I hope down the road this series focuses primarily on the superhero marriage and the logistics of that, but right now Im really shocked by the problems of this issue and Im wary of how this will play out.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 10, 2007

    I was really disappointed to see this become just another Countdown tie-in. I was expecting something related to Deathstroke at the very least. My recommendation is to just ignore this and read the reviews / summaries online. Not much happens and what little that does is not worth the cover price. Read Full Review
