    A solid villain backstory that ties into Green Arrow's emotions mixed in with a fun and disturbing ceremonial scene makes this an above average read. Read Full Review

    This is a rather straightforward read but still rather enjoyable. The writing and artwork are good enough to get the job done. This issue somewhat hearkens back to the tone of Ann Nocenti's run, yet is a bit better. Read Full Review

    Our Bone Cult story is over and even though we had some decent backstory explaining what the hell was going on in this story arc, I still can't call myself a fan.  This is definitely the best issue that we've gotten of Green Arrow with this writer's run, but the fact that love seems to be in the air in this issue out of nowhere, leaves me scratching my head.  The book looked great though and I'm just happy as hell to get Ollie away from this Bone Cult........... even if it means we have to head into werewolf biker gang territory........ Green Arrow has gotten weird. Read Full Review

    This is a solid conclusion to a story that I found to be fairly dull and uninteresting. This issue does fix some of my problems with this story and I enjoyed it but I do feel like this should have happened sooner. Additionally, the romance between Green Arrow and Tarantula is fairly forced and just random. I don't have much else to say. This is a fun issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Dec 9, 2015

    Green Arrow has been regularly frustrating since its reimagining in 2011, and so far Percy's tenure has only brushed the reader up against the greatness that this character always has the potential of displaying. The future doesn't seem quite as bright as it did at the end of the first arc, with the third arc hinting at a wolfy awakening for Ollie. This is definitely not the facial hair that fans are hoping to see. Where the character, and indeed Percy, work best is when they stick to the core values of the man behind the mask, but at this point is seems the shaft has strayed far from the center of the target.
