A BRIGHTEST DAY occurs in Star City after the White Ring gives birth to a massive forest downtown at ground zero of Prometheus' CRY FOR JUSTICE attack. Inside, Green Arrow has taken up residence, determined to end the rampant corruption surrounding the forest. First, he'll have to face off against the forces of his former company Queen Industries including their new owner who has a secret connection to the Emerald Archer's past.

Green Lantern Hal Jordan guest-stars and don't miss an ending you'll never see coming!

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 29, 2010

    Given that this series spun out of some of the worst storytelling that Green Arrow has ever been a part of, I'm simply floored by how excellent this series has been so far. JT Krul has found the perfect tone for Green Arrow in the midst of a premise that really suits him. When you add in the stellar efforts of artist Dioenes Neves, you have a book that, in just two issues, has come a long way towards redeeming Green Arrow after some truly horrid stories.

    J.T. Krul has made Green Arrow into one of my favorites at DC, and all he really did was make him Robin Hood, and it works so well. I really don't have too many complaints because from cover-to-cover, this was such a fun book. You don't have to be a Green Arrow or Green Lantern fan to love this book, but if you're one of those people who only wants to read comics featuring over-powered heroes that don't struggle, this isn't the book for you, but I'll recommend this to everyone anyway.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 29, 2010

    This issue is capped by an image on the final page that is so very unexpected it all but guarantees that the next issue is going to have a few more surprises in store. This issue definitely has a little more to entice me back for a third installment. In this case, it will be to get some answers to the mysteries of the story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 28, 2010

    This issue follows Green Arrow and Hal Jordan as they visit one another and discuss Ollie's new status quo as the lone guardian of Star City's new star-shaped forest (another of the series' ridiculously random, contrived elements), a reunion which is interrupted by an army of mercenary policemen hired by the new head of Queen Industries to protect the city. The battle goes on for too long, with far little consequence and in a very clumsy manner, until the cliffhanger jumps out and desperately tries to convince you nothing will ever be the same again. Spoiler Alert: it will be. Read Full Review
