    Although a decent read, this felt like an average issue, only with a higher page count. It doesn't quite have the punch you would expect from something with a #50 on the cover. Read Full Review

    We continue our Warg/Patriots story here and add a shit ton more as Green Arrow tries to find a solution to his werewolf problem.  While I'm still not a fan of this arc, I do have to admit that some of the developments in this story are really clever and add a whole new dynamic to the problems that our hero is facing.  Also, the dark tone of the book is perfectly brought to life by the style the art takes and while I'm still not a fan of this Green Arrow, I found myself enjoying this issue more than I have most others.

    The script slowly builds towards the next big showdown between Ollie and his Warg enemies, but even after 40 pages offers little in the way of payoff. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, Green Arrow #50 is a decent issue, with some knocks for a slightly jumbly story, some pacing problems as they constantly shift around who the conflict is with, and a lengthy issue that might have been tighter if it was normal-sized. I don't regret having read the issue, but, regardless of the impending flip of the New 52, this book would not have encouraged me to onboard this to my pull-list. It also leaves me feeling like this entire 50-issue run may not have been my thing, given where it looks like Arrow is winding up and what my notion of a "Green Arrow for me" would be defined as. Fans of the book should hook in and stay on for the final ride. Others who have a passing interest in the Green Arrow character are fine waiting to see where the DC reboot takes Ollie.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Mar 16, 2016

    The darker elements work quite well for a haunting and werewolf-tastic experience. That said, Green Arrow barely does anything beside groan with no fighting to speak of and certainly does nothing heroic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Mar 16, 2016

    As an anniversary issue marking 50 issues since the dawn of the "New 52," Green Arrow shows no signs of shaking the narrative confusion that plagued it in the initial issues. Still searching for a sense of identity, the addition of the horror genre and a half-hearted attempt at relevancy barely captures the spirit of modern politics, let alone the long history of political discourse that has been a part of Oliver Queen's adventures over the last three-quarters of a century. At this stage, we can only hope that DC's much-hyped "Rebirth" event manages to find the center of the target again. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue is consistent with the others in this story. It's potentially interesting with wonderful art but just isn't captivating enough. I recommend skipping this issue. Read Full Review
