    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 2, 2013

    You know how I've been constantly praising this title? Well, now it's time for you to see why. GREEN ARROW #24 is clearly constructed as a jumping on point, yet it still comes off feeling like an epic finale while successfully building-up something much bigger. There's plenty of hype to be found as a new character enters the fray and the spotlight is given to a character who was previously teased. Additionally, this issue is a prime example of why I love Sorrentino/Maiolo's artwork. In spite of a fair amount of the content being dark or tragic, I couldn't help but smile at how impressive the visuals were. Buy this issue. Like, right now. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Brian Benjamin Oct 2, 2013

    Green Arrow has become my number one title from DC Comics at this time. This book has everything I love about comics in it with each and every issue. Green Arrow by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino is a must read book and if you're not reading it, I question the books you read. Month to month, I look forward to this book with joy and it hasn't failed to deliver. Pick up this issue and go for it because I don't see this books quality dropping anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Lemire and Sorrentino are doing a great job on this book and I hope this team keeps up the great work. I'm interested in seeing where they take Olie from here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 2, 2013

    Green Arrow #24 is that rare comic that has it all.  The story is nonstop adventure and action and the art is breathtaking.  The book is made to be a jumping on point for the uninitiated and also has enough fan service to please long time fans.  Seriously, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Oct 7, 2013

    This was an amazing issue, and the story continues to be mysterious as well as dramatic. The character interaction was also brilliant, and the action was very exciting. Along with this there were some brilliant developments, with one in particular being a big surprise. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this issue, as well as Lemire's run so far, and can't wait for the next issue, especially due to it being a Zero Year tie-in. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Oct 2, 2013

    Overall, this issue was one of the best so far in Lemire's run, and quality like this should be expected going forward. The end of the book is awesome with a certain character showing up at the perfect time. Next month is a Zero Year tie in so it should be interesting to see how that is handled. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 2, 2013

    Lemire does a great job of building this issue for new readers. As an entry point to the series, it's top notch. The only place the story falls a little flat is when Ollie finally confronts Count Vertigo. To say it's anticlimactic is probably being generous. The Count has been built into a great villain and the fact that Green Arrow essentially puts him out of commission with one punch is kind of a bummer. I can't be the only one hoping for something a little bigger, something a bit more epic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 4, 2013

    If you haven't been reading "Green Arrow," this issue is a perfect example of the inventiveness that's on display here. Take a look, but then be prepared to buy the back issues. This is a creative team who honestly should have been on the book since day one, but they've made up for lost time quite admirably. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Oct 2, 2013

    Green Arrow #24is a great conclusion for the long-time readers while being a badass entry point for new adopters. Aside from the questionable appearance at the end of the book, this is a great end to Vertigo's story (even if it feels a bit too soon). Villain's Month didn't slow down this series at all. Pick up this book, people. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 13, 2013

    Green Arrow #24is another great issue for this series. Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino have taken a flagging title and given it direction and meaning once more. Whilst this issue is somewhat simplistic story-wise, it really works, bringing an end to this story-arc, whilst establishing what's to come in future issues. I only hope that next month's "Zero Year" tie-in doesn't interrupt the momentum which this title has built up so far" Read Full Review

    Vertigo's return does nothing for you, but there's still quite a bit from his appearance and much else besides that makes this issue worthy reading. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - shathley Q Nov 20, 2013

    It's hard to keep piling accolade upon accolade on this book. But in the hands of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, Green Arrow has become something special again. And it simply deserves to be read by you, whoever you are. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 3, 2013

    Granted, there is some clumsiness in the script that keeps this book from really hitting the bullseye - particularly the shoehorned cameo at the end - but the artwork in this book continues to step up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Graham MacDougall Oct 7, 2013

    This was a fairly mediocre issue made only somewhat cool by the always ever enjoyable art from Andrea. Hopefully Lemire will start picking it up more and more, hopefully he won't get bogged down with too many side characters, and show people what a truly great Green Arrow story can be like.
