    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Dec 2, 2014

    The artists for this issue are Neil Edwards, Joe Bennett & Craig Yeung, Beni Lobel, Angel Hernandez, Elena Casagrande and Rod Reis, with colours by Jim Charalampidis & Rod Reis, and letters by Deron Bennett. The switch in the artwork as we progress from one character to the another is something that is handled really well. The characters match up as they were on the show for the most part and their interactions with Oliver are definitely something that I loved seeing. After all, any moment where Oliver is getting beaten up by Helena for his past hypocrisy is a good moment as far as I'm concerned. And the backup art by Szymon Kudranski is much better this time around, especially where Lyla is concerned and the new character introduced is someone who definitely fits the bill for mental crazies as required by the Suicide Squad, crazies who also happen to be quite-perfect killing machines.

    I've really been digging this Arrow series and while at times it feels like characters are thrown in all willy nilly, it doesn't really affect the storytelling.  They're there, we know that they'll have a part in the current season of the show, so I'm okay with it.  A little background never hurt anyone.  I'm still mainly in this though to see what we'll get from the Suicide Squad backup because that's been interesting the whole way and I kind of wish that they would of gotten their own comic because even though we've only gotten a page or two every two weeks of that story, it's been keeping my excitement going.  So check it out and see how our hero got out of the last chapter's cliffhanger.

    This series continues to succeed in its mission of telling stories that flesh out and enhance the world of the TV show. In certain ways (particularly when it comes to spotlighting Roy), it does the show one better. Read Full Review

    With Oliver and Felicity both in enemy hands it should be interesting to see Arsenal and Huntress team-up to save them in the storyline's conclusion. Sadly, I have to admit the apparently imminent death of Khem-Adam makes me less interested to see how that plot thread eventually plays out. Worth a look. Read Full Review
