Part two of a three-part story introducing new creative team of Ann Nocenti and Harvey Tolibao! Green Arrow faces off against the enraged father of three beautiful sisters, which might not seem so unusual for Ollie until you add in the part about being trapped in a frozen tundra with a horde of bloodthirsty, mutating animals. Things aren't what they seem as Green Arrow must race to uncover the truth about this "family" before he becomes a monster snack or a frozen corpse!

    If I didn't know just when Brightest Day was going to end, it would be harder to stick it out. As it is, I'm willing to wait with the expectations that at least the biggest such questions will get resolved in the next few issues. Points to Krul, though, for writing Etrigan as a rhyming demon. I hate when writers cop out and don't rhyme, it's just not Etrigan without a snappy verse. On the art side, I really like Diogenes Neves' artwork. The forest scenes are beautiful, and Etrigan looks more menacing than he has in many a day. Fingers crossed that once Brightest Day ends and a permanent direction for this book is chosen, it'll be a strong one. Read Full Review

    With the story ambling along awkwardly, as though one leg is longer than the other, it's no wonder that it ends up back where it started. I can appreciate Nocenti's desire to instill a sense of intrigue by keeping the reader's head spinning. However, it really would behoove the title to establish some semblance of stability before heading off into the chaos represented by Nocenti's newly introduced characters. I'm sure that such a foundation will manifest itself soon, but, until that happens, it may be better to leave this one on the rack. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Apr 5, 2012

    "Green Arrow" #8 is a comic trying its best. There are attempts at making the action flow, the sexual tension grab you and the villain seem interesting and powerful. These attempts sadly fail and what's left is a mildly confusing and wholly uninteresting comic. A real shame to see this character become unlikeable and this story spread out so thinly across a variety of genres that don't work together. Read Full Review

    The sad thing about Green Arrow is that I know Nocenti can tell some knockout stories " but this is just being bizarre for bizarreness's sake. Read Full Review
