    This is a great issue. The art and the writing are both in top form. Every panel is gorgeous with a great character focused story to go enhance it and vice versa. The action is cool and, as always, there are fun moments for fans of Green Arrow. Read Full Review

    Percy ends the issue with the return of a featured supporting character (no, not that one) sure to shake up the status quo. For a character writers frequently run out of good ideas early on in their run, Percy is showing there's plenty of arrows left in his quiver. And he's still firmly on target. Read Full Review

    Green Arrow #15 is action packed with a Lethal Weapon vibe that's hard to resist. This issue progresses the villain's plot and looks gorgeous doing it. Read Full Review

    Really enjoying this story arc. It was a little too familiar at first and still is a little familiar, but it's still fresh in it's own way. Which is what I like. Notting isn't the perfect villain, but the Vice Squad fit really well into the story and what's going on with Seattle. Classic ending of course with a character returning and saving the day, I enjoyed that as well. Interested to see where that goes next issue. Then there is the art. FANTASTIC! Definitely a step up from previous issues and probably one of my favorite issues art wise. Read Full Review

    The issue does take a breath before the action gets going, as it fosters the relationship between Ollie and Dinah. It's definitely something of an intake before the whirlwind ensues. But Green Arrow #15 does outline the fact that the pair work brilliantly as a team, to the point where she's essential to his crimefighting. She's more than just his girlfriend in that respect, and it's great to see. Although we have to say, Ollie's incessant whining about how bad his situation is each issue is starting to get a little tiresome. We get it Queen, you're down on your luck. Give it a few more issues and he'll be back in his fancy apartment. Aside from that, it's a rip roaring instalment. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 18, 2017

    The ‘Emerald Outlaw' has been one heck of a storyline since Oliver and friends made their way back to Seattle. Green Arrow #15 presses forward with the escalation of these enemies who prove that a vigilante is not the worst thing for people to fear. Compared to other A-list hero books, you have to appreciate that Green Arrow sticks to the same tone throughout. You want a story that pulls no punches? Look no further. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 19, 2017

    It's no secret that Green Arrow has been one the best books of the DC Rebirth era, and that's still true in this issue. While there are some elements here that seem to be inspired by the Arrow TV show, it feels less like this is aping that series and more like it's just on the cusp of a classic Green Arrow run.

    If you are looking to jump on the Green Arrow train, this is a great issue to do so.  There is enough recap to get everyone up to speed and while that may turn of some steady readers, there are some pretty big things for them to sink their teeth into as well.  I know it's cliche to say, but Juan Ferreyra's art is worth the price of admission which only makes the awesome cliffhanger a nice bonus.  My guess is things are about to get crazy!

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 18, 2017

    Much of the issues appears to be a long setup for the return of a familiar character on the final page. It’s heralded by a full-page glory shot of the character spouting their new codename, a wonderfully impactful moment that would have even more power if Percy hadn’t used the exact motif to announce the arrival of the "new" Merlyn last issue. Even so, Percy and his rotating art teams continue to provide a classic version of Green Arrow, even if it’s a little too "greatest hits" at times. Read Full Review
