    Loved this story arc. It's great to have Arsenal back withGreen Arrow and I really enjoyed his intense backstory. I thought the backstories were well written and everything was wrapped up in a nice littlepackage. The art was fantastic as well. The first panel where Vertigo isdrugging Roy and it goes all trippy, loved it. The art style was change or theway it was coloured just in that panel was great.  Read Full Review

    Green Arrow #20 is an action-packed conclusion to an ambitious story filled with subplots and backstory. For the most part it is well told and works. The art is lacking, but is probably a result of publishing deadlines. Hopefully, DC will eventually back off from its rigorous schedule and focus more on quality rather than quantity. Either way this title is well-worth the time and money. Read Full Review

    This is another solid issue. I really wasn't liking Roy but this issue makes him more endearing. I feel like I understand this version of Roy in a way I haven't before which is nice. I still prefer Emiko as a partner but I'm more okay with Roy now. The art is really good and there's a lot of fun action and dialogue. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, this is a good-looking issue, but hopefully Benjamin Percy will tell a better story in the next arc now that this one is out of his system. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 5, 2017

    This issue ends the Return of Roy Harper story in a very forced and rushed way.  I really liked the issues leading up to this one which made this ending hurt even more.  I liked the art from both Eleonora Carlini and Mirka Andolfo, but that couldn't save the issue.  I am still enjoying this book, just not this conclusion.

    Sometimes an arc just doesn't work for whatever reason. That was the case here, but with a return to the overall series' conflict and artist Juan Ferreyra, I'm optimistic Percy will quickly get the title back on target. Read Full Review

    Green Arrow #20 concludes a story that had a lot of potential, but misses the mark due to rushed storytelling and a general lack of character depth. Read Full Review

    This issue wraps up the return of Roy Harper, but having to split time between present-day events and flashbacks hurts the flow of the book and the impact of the ending. Read Full Review
