    The Latest Pull - Nathan Stout May 13, 2015

    This was a very enjoyable issue that had a lot to offer, even if it wasn't perfect, and was definitely worth the read. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 20, 2015

    In the end, if youre here for the action, theres a good chance youll be disappointed, but if you have affection for any of these characters or are just a fan of some good family drama, you, like myself, will probably find this to be one of the better Convergence tie-ins. Personally, I would love to see these four get together again, away from this event and with the time to really explore whatever story theyre telling. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray May 17, 2015

    LIke many of the second issues in these Convergence runs, CONVERGENCE GREEN ARROW lacks any real sense of resolution. The father-son angst that was set up in the first issue never really pays off, nor is it given any more attention other than a throwaway line in the final panel. This is disappointing, as Marx's set-up really makes us want to spend a bit more time with this group of unlikely characters, or at the very least explore the "what if" relationship between Ollie and Connor. As we've already had a taste of the future of Green Arrow with the post-Convergence Green Arrow #41, this may still be the last time we see the bearded Ollie outside of the back-issues.

    IGN - Mike Logsdon May 14, 2015

    Green Arrow has often been about family, and Marx uses that here to make this particular battle an emotionally difficult one to watch. That said, the ending is definitely forced, but it does wrap things up thematically. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 14, 2015

    While I expected this book to be a big emotional ride with Oliver discovering his fatherhood, instead we get more of the fighting aspect that you've come to expect from Convergence and it really feels like a misstep.  There was such prime material to use to make sad sacks like me with daddy issues cry, but instead we see a alternate family feud and it just wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked.  On the plus side though, this book has great art from beginning to end, so it manages to be an alright issue even if it didn't make me weep.

    Although Convergence: Green Arrow #2 isn't anything special, but it is a testament to writer Christy Marx working well with the restrictions of Convergence's story requirements. Read Full Review
