    We also catch a glimpse of the Seattle “Dragon” story-line, while it maintains interest for what we assume the next arc will be, it would of been nice to just focus on the Outsiders war. We also get Katana in this story with little to none explanation, though I am sure we will get more details, it also is kind of silly considering they barely interact in the very short lived Justice League of America team up. These remain only minor complaints for a other wise amazing issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 2, 2014

    Sorrentino, as previously stated, does some amazing stuff in this issue. When it looks great, it looks unbelievable great. The storytelling it top notch and smooth as silk. Even in unrelenting chaos, Sorrentino choreographs things beautifully, letting the characters dance through the violence and mayhem. Colorist Marcelo Maiolo does some awesome stuff here, too. There are a few panels that have a strange yellowish background, but for the most part it looks great. Green Arrow is one of DC's better comics right now. Only a fool would skip this comic and you're not a fool, right? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 4, 2014

    Green Arrow #30 continues the Outsiders War and while Jeff Lemire throws so many characters at the reader, it is a more personal fight for Ollie.  Andrea Sorrentino's art combined with Lemire's writing make this a book that's hard to beat. Read Full Review

    Full of fantastic artwork from start to finish, and the battle picking up leading into the conclusion of this arc, this issue is another great read from Lemire and Sorrentino's run. If you think CW's ‘Arrow' is intense, they you would do well to pick up the Green Arrow comics, as this is one of DC's best comic out right now. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been reading GREEN ARROW lately, you have no idea what you're missing. Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino are taking the character and series to new levels. There is a lot going on in this arc along with a lot of characters. While this particular installment in the arc doesn't push the story forward too much, we still have a lot of insanity to enjoy. GREEN ARROW isn't just a good comic. It's a GREAT comic. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Apr 22, 2014

    Green Arrow #30 will shock readers all over again. "The Outsiders War" seems to be going from strength to strength, as does Lemire and Sorrentino's work on Green Arrow. Next issue can't land soon enough, as nothing will ever be the same" Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 3, 2014

    The Outsiders war is coming to a head, and Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino continue their upward trajectory for Green Arrow. There's a decent amount of exposition here, as Lemire has to explain the various weapon-based clans (not to mention Oliver Queen's increasingly complicated relationship with his thought-to-be dead father), but there's some emotional content being built up.
