    I've said this before, and I'll never get tired of telling this: Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's creative combi is definitely one of the best teams ever to embrace the comic book medium. Surely, we'll be seeing more from this duo as the Outsiders War nears its conclusion. Prepare to be Arrow-fied. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Feb 5, 2014

    Green Arrow #28 is utterly amazing and easily proves why Green Arrow is one of the best comics that any company is putting out there. Its story is intense and exciting, its characters and villains are interesting, twists and surprises will keep you coming back for more, and the artwork is some of the best in the business. If you are not reading Green Arrow right now, get to it. You are missing out! Read Full Review

    Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's Green Arrow is a beautiful cataclysm that's remaking the Emerald Archer into one of DC's top-tier characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 5, 2014

    Secrets are explained, new alliances are formed, and the tension builds. Lemire's plot remains both gripping and exciting, but Sorrentino and Maiolo's artwork is simply out of this world. This is without question the best looking book in my pull list and I find myself once again beyond anxious to purchase the next issue. I just can't recommend this series enough. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Feb 5, 2014

    Overall, Green Arrow #28 keeps up the intensity that Lemire has bought to the book. With a story that keeps the reader wanting more and art that is dark and exciting, Green Lantern is a must read comic every month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 6, 2014

    Green Arrow #28 has it all.  Lemire's storytelling is top notch and Sorrentino's art is second to none.  The Outsiders War is nearing an end, but it is so good I wish it could last forever.  Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Matt Sculthorpe Feb 6, 2014

    Green Arrow 28 is a fantastic read that can be a tough read for those expecting a more traditional reunion. But thats what Lemire and Sorrentino have done throughout their run with the character. They dont do what is expected or traditional, which is refreshing in a comics climate that likes to rehash the familiar. Green Arrow is at both familiar and new, always making for a great read.

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Feb 7, 2014

    Wonderfully written, exquisitely drawn and gorgeously colored. Green Arrow is a dark, compelling and thoroughly wonderful rebirth of a classic character that is also visually stunning. Read Full Review

    Max Level Geek - Jonathan Semoneit Feb 8, 2014

    Lemire is building quite a story with Outsiders War and, now with the big reveal that his father is actually alive, I can't wait to see what's in store for Ollie and Co. Will Ollie learn to accept what his father has done to him? I surmise that, whether he likes it or not, Ollie will need to enlist the help of Shado and his father to defeat the Outsiders. And, as a fan of the ArrowTV series, I couldn't be happier to see Dig make his appearance in the comics! Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Feb 12, 2014

    There is little to complain about with this book. The only faults are minor; Sorrentino's art hadsome confusing moments, and some may find Lemire's writing too formulaic. However, if readers arewilling to look past small details, they will find an excellent comic book experience awaiting them. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 11, 2014

    Few surprises here, but the ones that do exist are entertaining enough. Sorrentino continues to be DC's biggest artistic daredevil and Green Arrow's greatest asset. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 10, 2014

    If you can get past that caveat, however, Lemire and Sorrentino's latest arc of Green Arrow is a fun, ambitious story that tries to show off previously unknown depths to the Emerald Archer. Right now, Ollie himself hasn't show his hidden potential, but Lemire is relying on changing the world around him to make his point. If we can see Ollie himself step up to the plate, this might be one of the best stories to come out of the New 52. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Feb 6, 2014

    Green Arrow#28 slows down the pace of The Outsiders War, which is just what readers needed. Even though the issue's paces slows down a bit, the quality stays right up there as one of the best DC is putting out thanks to the creative efforts of Lemire, Sorrentino and Maiolo. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Feb 12, 2014

    Final thoughts: the reveal of Onyx as the leader of the Fist Clan is cool although changing her ethnicity (coloring mistake?) definitely isnt. And now that the “Outsiders War” is half over, I am wondering when we will get to the actual war itself? And Im left wondering what the seventh clan is, and when they will be revealed. Green Arrow #28 is definitely a tease for all of this but it serves on its own as a good issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Feb 5, 2014

    Lemire has all the elements of a sharply original Green Arrow story working here, and it is entirely possible that they will wrap up in a future issue. For now, there are far too many moving parts for this to be enjoyable, detracting from the core of the character and altering the essence of a hero that has always been defined by his ability to make (and break) his own destiny.
