    This is a solid issue; I think that the villains really come into their own in this one. The threat feels real, personal and legitimate. My favorite character is featured heavily which makes me happy. The art is amazing and the story is heading somewhere really interesting. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    The Rise of Star City has been a killer storyline delivering all the beats of a classic Green Arrow story. Each issue has built nicely on the previous installment and this issue takes the story to an entirely unexpected and shocking level. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 17, 2017

    By taking some of the most successful bits of the CW 'Arrow' show and bringing back some elements of Green Arrow that have been missing since 2011, this issue distills a really good take on Oliver Queen and his life that should appeal to fans new and old. Green Arrow #23 is really good, with a lot of characters, a lot of action but a clarity of narrative and dialogue. Read Full Review

    The main adversary is still a little too over-the-top to take seriously, but the visuals make it very easy to overlook the issue's shortcomings. Read Full Review

    The story picks up quite a bit here, which feels rawer and more earned as Oliver begins to fall to the mind games Broderick and the Ninth Circle have been playing. The art is near perfect, which I'll never get tired of saying. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 17, 2017

    I have enjoyed the Rise of Star City, but we are still waiting for answers.  Granted, it's been brutally fun waiting for them, but still...I want more answers.  This issue adds a couple more questions to the mix, but the crazy cliffhanger and Juan Ferreyra's art still has me excited for more.

    Nerd Church Radio - Ben DuPey May 17, 2017

    While this issue was expertly drawn and the story was pretty fun, I kept hearing the song "too many cooks" in the background while I was reading it. We follow so many characters in a 22 page comic that it can sometimes become overwhelming and difficult to follow. But, if you have the time to spend to sit down and give this book a chance, you wont be disappointed. There is a great story here will absolutely gorgeous art. And red-headed recap reporter lady (Victoria Much) plays a big part, to boot! Read Full Review
