    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Sep 2, 2015

    GREEN ARROW #44 is mostly a prelude issue, albeit one that delivers some powerful scenes in the anticipation of the story to come. The addition of an unexpected ally in the final pages comes as a pleasing twist, and the addition of this character may raise some eyebrows who still haven't quite come to terms with her actions with another hero a decade ago. Once again, Percy leaves us pointed in the right direction, and now we patiently wait a month to see if his aim is true. Read Full Review

    While I was personally grabbed by the character, I can understand how someone not as enamored with Green Arrow would feel kind of slighted with this issue. Im hoping that the next issue gives us some more meat in the overall plot, and potentially moving this issue up to a really fun filler issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, we're seeing the next step for the Emerald Archer, and while the first story of this new arc didn't have me pumped with excitement, it did have me very intrigued to see where it all goes from here. Read Full Review

    It's an unusual story, and regardless of how jarring you may or may not find the transition, it's not a particularly well told story. Read Full Review

    Although there are some revelations about George the dog, this issue is probably not an essential one. Read Full Review

    The writing is pretty solid ignoring that weird magic twist, and the artwork –aside from some questionable angles– is well detailed with panels flowing well, and for that Green Arrow #44 is a solid read -Not a great one, but a good read nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 3, 2015

    "Green Arrow" #44 is a decent enough read, but anyone hoping to find the titular character doing anything remotely related to what one might expect Green Arrow to do is going to be a titch disappointed. Yes, every series needs down issues, and, yes, subplots and future plots need to be set up, but the center seems to be missing in this comic as it feels like a collection of subplot ignition points rather than an organic blossoming. With a focus on Oliver's relationship self-destruction, the origin of the wolf-dog and an appearance by Tarantula, this is a solid non-Green Arrow book. Maybe next issue will be a little more centered. Read Full Review

    For anyone out there that thought that the last story arc was missing a crucial element, like the actual title character of the book, don't go running to your comic shops and picking up the latest Green Arrow just yet because what you will find instead is backstory on Ollie's new wolf pet and while it's well written, it's just not Green Arrow and it completely left me wanting more.
