    Overall, the issue has done a great job for the Green Arrow. The plot of Oliver dealing with the Lukos Virus is a bit long and tedious, but his mission in this issue to cure himself and the other infected Wargs is exhilarating. The issue leaves us wanting more. Will Doctor Miracle be the answer to the virus in Seattle? Will Green Arrow be saved? We'll have to wait for GREEN ARROW #52 to find out! Read Full Review

    Green Arrow #50 didn't really deliver on the much-hyped clash between Green Arrow and Deathstroke. This issue picks up the slack, though it's still a bit slow in building towards the main event. Read Full Review

    Action packed and fun because of it, Green Arrow #51 works well enough, but a few awkward scenes, panels and bits of dialogue make this an imperfect read. Read Full Review

    Overall, the art is great and I love the effort being put forth. But, the writing isn't very subtle which takes me out of it and there isn't an engaging conflict. Slade is able to win too easily so there's never any tension. It's certainly not bad but it doesn't leave much of an impression. I would wait for the trade on this one mainly for the art.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Apr 6, 2016

    Nevertheless, this penultimate issue of the "New 52" Green Arrow is frustrated by some rushed pacing, now trying to reconcile several of those aforementioned narratives to bring this chapter of Oliver Queen's life to a conclusion, or at least a new beginning. The drama of the cliffhanger is undercut by the fact that there is a man standing in the room that can bring people back from near-death, coupled with a preview title that is virtually telling us how this is going to unfold. Even if it doesn't go that way, and Percy surprises us with the final curtain, it's a case of too little too late in this otherwise solid action issue. Read Full Review

    This penultimate issue of the Emerald Archer's New 52 run is a fair read with Szymon Kudranski's art being the highlight. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 8, 2016

    Green Arrow continues to disappoint in this issue because at this point it's just a one trick pony that can do little else than tell you that racism is bad, while making sure that there's plenty of murder and mayhem involved.  While I do think that the art fits this type of story, it's just not something that I really enjoy and I just find myself wondering when Green Arrow will lighten up a bit because I don't need a writer's entire run of a book to tell me that racism is a terrible thing.  This issue also suffers in that everything is way to convenient when we're not focused on white people being terrible and Deathstroke just killing everyone.
