    The simple truth of the matter is that I'm not a huge fan of Howard Porter's art, as while there's nothing wrong with it, it simply doesn't grab the eye, and the impact visuals that are designed to sell the more exciting elements of the issue always strike me as looking a bit unusual as the character's bodies are twisted out of proportion to presumably heighten the excitement of the image. The art also doesn't quite sell me on the more emotional moments of the issue, as Oliver Queen's righteous indignation is presented as a stone faced expression with no hint of emotion, and Bart's grim resolve is entirely dependant of the text to sell the idea that the character has been impacted by the events that have been playing out. Still I will give the art credit for its work on the final pages, as the visual importance of the letter is help considerably by the visuals that the last two pages offer up. Read Full Review
