    Not as good baseline as the previous issues because of all the recap from the show, but still a solid issue. Read Full Review

    The plot in this series has progressed to the point where I find myself wishing it would actually be turned into an episode of the show. Read Full Review

    I really liked the fact that Guggenheim is playing with the Brother Blood character again. I thought the show did an excellent job with it too. One thing is for certain, with the Church of Blood rising once again and other possible villains to come in the future, havoc is on its way towards Starling. So if you're a fan of CW's Arrow, then from "Pop Chok" arrow to Oliver's superpower of blaming himself for everything (again, staying true to the show) and from Felicity's one liners to Diggle's ass kicking, this series is going to be a pretty fun read for you.

    While the art to this book is consistently great and really captures the look of the actors of the show, I really can't recommend this issue because it's a complete backtrack to show us the supposed origin of the new Brother Blood, but does it by just showing us what happened in an episode last season of the show.  I know these are short issues and there's a lot to convey in a small amount of space, but this origin seems like something that could of been said in a brief conversation, because really it's not all that exciting and definitely not the stunning origin that the description promised.  Hopefully now that this story is out of the way we can get back to telling actual stories that happened in between Season 2 and 3.

    Arrow Season 2.5 #3, is not a technically bad issue. In fact, someone who hadnt seen the last few Arrow episodes in Season 2 might really enjoy the writing in this issue. But, points off for being a complete and total rehash. For those who've seen the show, no need to bother, really. Read Full Review
