    Joe Bennett's pencils felt a little off in this issue as some of the characters were a bit too bulky with wide faces, such as Oliver and Diggle, and Thea and Malcolm didn't exactly look like I expected them too. But thankfully, that's really all the complaints I have against this one where the art is concerned, because the rest of the issue is damn good. I really loved how the scenes in Starling were contrasted against the scenes in Corto Maltese and how the whole vibe changed once we stepped into Kahndaq and witnessed a fanatic doing his thing. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    Like usual, the art in this book is great.  All the characters look like their actor counterparts and I really don't ever have anything bad to say about it.  For the story, well I'm really happy that shit is going down.  After last issue I was a little afraid that this series would continuously use flashbacks, but that doesn't seem to be the case and all my worries were for not.  Go check out this digital title as shit starts getting real from Starling City to Corto Maltese to Kahndaq.

    I continue to be impressed with just how much the dialogue, the plotting, and the general tone of this comic recreate the feel of the TV series. That's the benefit of keeping Marc Guggenheim and Keto Shimizu so closely invovled. Read Full Review

    Arrow Season 2.5 is starting to hit its stride, story-wise. But, the balancing act it is trying to pull with the large cast in such a small space will continue to hinder strong storytelling. Read Full Review

    The best thing about this series is how well it captures the vibe of the show. The worst thing is how little happens in each issue. Why did they have to make it bi-weekly? I bet the monthly print title must be way more fun to read.
