    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Mar 5, 2014

    Ladies and gentlemen, GREEN ARROW is awesome. Lemire keeps the pace moving with big developments and Sorrentino/Maiolo's artwork will make sure your eyes are glued to the panels. It's not only a legitimately exciting and absorbing book, but it's easily one of the best looking books DC is putting out there, too. Month after month, GREEN ARROW continues to prove it's worth every single penny of the cover price. Do yourself a favor and give this series a read. Don't worry, you can thank me later.

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Mar 6, 2014

    There aren't enough ways to say just how amazing this team has been and continues to be. It's one thing to have a few great issues, but it's another to continue to top the previous issue each and every month and raise the bar higher and higher for all the other comics that dare to sit on a shelf next to Green Arrow. The first collection, though it's labelled as Green Arrow Vol. 4, is coming this month and if you aren't reading this because you're afflicted with some form of insanity, here's your chance to get on board. This run is going to go down as one of the premier runs in all of comics. This is on a level that's going to deserve an absolute collection down the line if DC knows what's good for 'em.

    If youve already been reading the recent issues of Green Arrow, then this review is probably pretty superfluous to you, but if you havent picked them up yet, try to find issues 26-29 so you can get caught up in time for the conclusion to “The Outsiders War” in Green Arrow #31. You wont be disappointed! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 6, 2014

    Green Arrow #29 continues the Outsiders War, but it's the continued character development that I really enjoyed.  Lemire and Sorrentino have created such varied characters and such a great world for Ollie to fight with and in and in this issue it really pays off.  The ending is crazy, but I'm counting on Lemire to make it all better next month.  Damn it, I can't wait until next month.

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Mar 5, 2014

    Andrea Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo continue to make one of the best Green Arrow stories in years even better. Colorists can sometimes be overlooked, which is always a crime, but Sorrentino and Maiolo work together in a way to make such a thing impossible. The artists continue to work seamlessly with Lemire to make the end product that much more meaningful. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 7, 2014

    With a suitably dramatic cliffhanger as a hero falls in a fairly definitive manner, the question now is... what next? I have no idea, other than I trust Lemire and Sorrentino to make the follow-through fun and enjoyable. If you aren't reading "Green Arrow," seriously, you need to start. This book is too good for you to ignore. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Apr 2, 2014

    This is another strong issue of Green Arrow. Whilst the story may slow down a little bit, there's plenty to be enjoyed this issue. Not to mention that killer ending" Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Mar 6, 2014

    While the creative decision to make the Outsiders an expansive organization brings up questions as to how it interacts with similar organizations like the League of Assassins, writer Jeff Lemire runs with it and goes all out to give us an action-packed and exciting issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 5, 2014

    Ultimately, Green Arrow as a comic is somewhat of a work in progress, but that's not necessarily a bad thing - this is a comic that's constantly trying new things and constantly trying to improve itself, and that's something that should be praised, not panned. It doesn't hurt, of course, that the execution is generally solid at its worst, and some of DC's most exciting work at its best. This comic may lean on the old-school soap operatic tropes a bit more than usual, but who's to say that a time-tested balance of action and melodrama is a bad thing? If anything, despite some minor missteps, I'd say that Green Arrow #29 continues to be right on target. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Mar 6, 2014

    Despite an anticlimactic ending, the creative team weaves beautiful storytelling yarn that spotlight's Oliver's shining supporting cast while also moving the overall plot along at a pleasing rate. The art team continues to blow the competition out of the water, delivering some of the best art seen in comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Mar 8, 2014

    The biggest hindrance on the story so far is that were four issues in and the war of the Outsiders is only just starting. Lemire is making me afraid that the big war itself in the next two issues is going to be really rushed out and that the arc will suffer for it. Still, the best thing about this arc is that it introduces a series of long-term storylines that will come into play for years to come. The story falters a little, but it keeps pushing forward to interesting points. Of course the middle section is going to be the weak part. Thats usually the way comics tend to work (at least in my opinion). The next two issues better deliver, or this is going to be a bust. Green Arrow #29 is the weakest part of the “Outsiders War” so far, but it isn't necessarily bad. It just falters a little and seems a tad rushed. Read Full Review
