    DC has again found a great creative team the art in this issue is bold and fluid really complementing a story that is thus far being told with a tight plot and spot on characterization. Read Full Review

    Overall, this came off as an excellent issue that looks into Oliver and Roy's history. There's a lot going on here, from the present day pipeline dispute to the flashback sequences with both Count Vertigo and Roy's early days as Speedy. In fact, the format with the past couple of issues almost reminds me a bit of Greg Rucka's “The Lies” and “Year One” Wonder Woman arc that kicked off Rebirth. Both were fantastic looks at characters that have their past catching up to their present. Read Full Review

    I'm really enjoying this story arc. I feel bad for Oliver though, more and more shit keeps piling up that appears to be his fault. One thing I love about Benjamin Percy's writing is that he's using a lot of classic Green Arrow elements. A little bit of politics mixed with serious issues and of course the mention of trick arrows. I'm really enjoying Eleanor Carlini's art as well. Just enough detail and those action panels were near perfect! Read Full Review

    This is a pretty good issue. Roy is obnoxious but he doesn't take away too much from the issue. The action is solid with some cool art. Black Canary gets a lot to do both as a fighter and a character which is always the correct choice. It's well written with solid political themes and it's an enjoyable read. I recommend checking the issue out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 15, 2017

    This issue is full of fan service and social commentary and while I liked the former more than the later, neither made this a must read for me.  It's a shame because I loved the first issue of this arc, but this one made me feel like the story was already starting to drag after only two issues.  The art was good, but even that didn't wow me enough to recommend this issue.

    This is a step up after the last issue, but this book will probably be better off without Roy Harper. Read Full Review

    The pipeline standoff finds the arc at its best. That's classic Green Arrow fighting against the man. But the retread Oliver/Roy fallout feels tired and the art isn't up the book's normal standard. Read Full Review
