    This is a great issue. There is cool action with amazing art to make it even better. Percy writes some great dialogue which also adds to the issue's personality and appeal. There are some interesting ideas about Ollie's character presented here which makes me excited about the next issue. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 7, 2017

    Green Arrow is an A-list comic. Percy and Ferreyra do a great job dialing into who Ollie is, what his family (literal and figurative) means and the Queen connection to the city. This is a wonderfully contained superhero story and they stick the landing for this arc with issue #24. Two dozen issues into Green Arrow I have never been this pumped to read the adventures of the Emerald Archer. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Jun 8, 2017

    Like I've said before, Benjamin Percy is doing the lords work on Green Arrow but I got to say the real superstar is Juan Ferreyra here. The way he lays panels out and handles each character is just amazing. The dudes gonna be huge and has cemented his place as my favorite artist working. I can't say enough good things about this book or the creative team, everyone needs to be reading this. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Jun 7, 2017

    Percy just gets more and more literate as he scripts this comic, really settling into his role as writer. He made the plot complex but not convoluted. It reads (as I may have stated in the last issue I reviewed but it is even more appropriate here) like a novel in comic form. In other words the story is great and it is told in a medium with the added benefit of brilliant pictures to complement it. And just as Percy really seems to be hitting his stride, the art seems to get better and better with each issue. I almost drooled over the beautiful renderings inside this comic. The style may not be for everyone, but I love it. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 7, 2017

    The Rise of the Ninth Circle remains a quality read from the Green Arrow team with sharp writing and exceptional art. It'll be interesting to see where Percy takes the story after the stunning cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    When they're together, Percy and Ferreyra are pure magic. And this issue feels like a new beginning for the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 7, 2017

    I liked what we got here, but as a conclusion to a long story, it was more setup than I'd like.  Still, it was action packed and the art by Juan Ferreyra was gorgeous.  If you have enjoyed this series up until now, I think that will continue. Read Full Review

    A pretty issue that advances the plot, though in a somewhat forced way. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 10, 2017

    This is not a comic that is particularly kind to its political opposition. If you can look past that, it is a quality book. This one comes recommended in spite of its caveats. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Josh West Jun 7, 2017

    Green Arrow #24 concludes "The Rise of Star City" with a story that will change Oliver Queen's life. It's not the best issue in this title, but it proves that Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra can make weaker issues seem stronger with their exceptional creative dynamic Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 7, 2017

    I'm looking forward to where the story's going but I felt a bit sour when I finished this issue. I didn't exactly feel cheated by the ending, but I expected more. Going into it further will result in me spoiling it so I'm curious to know what people think of it. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 7, 2017

    Green Arrow #24 is something of a disappointment. Despite Benjamin Percy rushing this issue to its conclusion, there's no payoff or resolution to speak of. Juan Ferreyra's artwork remains excellent but can only do so much to dress up this lifeless ending. Read Full Review
