    Green Arrow had some rough patches lately, but this arc and this issue are a strong indication it's back as a top tier Rebirth title. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ben DuPey May 3, 2017

    This issue culminated all of the events that we've gotten from the last 21 issues of Green Arrow in DC Rebirth. All of these events are finally coming to a head, and it couldn't be more epic. Benjamin Percy crafts a wonderful story with beautiful art from Juan Ferreyra that leaves me wanting more every couple of weeks. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 3, 2017

    If anything, this series is a vessel for incredible art. Otto Schmidt is great but Juan Ferreyra's scope cannot be questioned. The story moves along nicely and we get to see how Ollie is affected by the Ninth Circle, which may or may not drive his allies away. And they're who he needs right now. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine May 3, 2017

    This is a solid issue. It pulls me into the story and gets me invested in a way the previous issue did not. The art is gorgeous throughout and really easy to just look at. There is some great writing here. I think the mayor is an effective character that makes this story feel relevant and thus, intense. The scene between Ollie and Dinah has great dialogue. However, the exposition-heavy dialogue bothers me. Percy does have a sense of humor about it; he seems to be self aware but that doesn't help me that much. It feels forced and unnatural. Overall, this is a strong issue and I do recommend reading it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 3, 2017

    The Rise of Star City arc is off and running and with great art by Juan Ferreyra and a story by Benjamin Percy that is tearing apart Green Arrow from every direction, I am enjoying it.  Seattle is being torn apart, but so is Oliver's world and it's the later that has me most intrigued.  Those wanting to jump onto this book should give this arc a look see.

    Ferreyra's action sequences are terrific and even the argument between Green Arrow and Black Canary really pops off the page thanks to the emotions depicted in their faces and bodies. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Andrew Wheeler May 3, 2017

    This issue was mostly just filler and also felt like it was cut up and missing parts. If you were to skip it you wouldn't miss much. Read Full Review
