    This issue feels a bit slow and while there's moments that I enjoyed quite a bit, the promising mystery from the opening issue has kind of lost its way, and the lack of any real action in this issue had me focusing on the unanswered questions that this issue avoids addressing. I mean one has to wonder why does Oliver feel he has to skulk around like a thief to get objects that are clearly his property, when he could simply step forward and ask for them. The question of why he feels he needs these objects is also a bit loosey goosey in the logic department, though I will concede that Brad Meltzer does come up with a pretty solid reason why Oliver would want the diamond-tipped arrow. I'll also give him full marks for the way he dealt with the tension between Oliver & Kyle, with the boxing glove question generating a very cute little moment of nostalgia. Less impressive though is the scene with the Flash, as it does make Wally look a bit slow on the uptake, which just feels wrong. Read Full Review
