    Arrow: The Dark Archer proves to be a perfect companion piece to Season 4 of Arrow. The artwork is top-notch and the writing is true to the spirit of the show. You really feel as if you're looking at a lost Arrow storyboard! Read Full Review

    Arrow‘s digital tie-in series have always been a bit of a mixed bagmuch like the show. The best to hope for is decent art and a fairly engaging story. So far, Arrow: The Dark Archer fits that bill. Its cleverly written and the art isnt half bad. And at the very least Ill get to see Malcolm Merlyn tortured. Thats worth a lot more than 99 to me.

    Fans of thetelevision series Arrow would do wellto check this book out, it's well-written and the characterization of MalcolmMerlyn is spot-on. Whether or not this will give us any insight into stuffhappening on the show, I can't say, but even by itself Dark Archer is a fun read and the first issue left a lot oftantalizing threads for us to follow. I'd say that if you're not watching Arrow, then you can skip this book,unless you're Eric Shea in which case 99 cents is a small price to pay for sucha riveting cover photo. Read Full Review
