    Is it the start of a Rebirth bromance, Oliver Queen's way into the Justice League or just another case of reluctant allies in the latest issue ofGreen Arrow? Since this is only the first part of the story, and Wonder Woman showing up next time, there is more to read and learn. Those who like seeing Ollie go ahead to head with super-powered heroes, and prove his worth will enjoy finding out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 5, 2017

    A fun team-up issue in that it reveals the Ninth Circle has been mucking about with other heroes' stuff. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 5, 2017

    The biggest challenge for Percy will be keeping this new direction fresh from issue to issue. This first issue was very encouraging. Of the main Rebirth superhero titles, Green Arrow might have been the darkest with the destruction of Seattle. Hard-Traveling Hero aims to lighten the mood by refocusing Green Arrow as a nomadic archer righting injustices everywhere he travels. One issue in to the new direction and the creative team is right on target. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jul 7, 2017

    The Flash and Green Arrow do find a balance and work together by the end of the issue, and another major guest star is broadly hinted at for the following chapter. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Jul 5, 2017

    Percy and company have done a wonderful job of weaving a story that is fun and easy to read on a bi-weekly basis yet continuously expands and builds upon itself, blossoming into the juggernaut of a book that it is today. It is easily the most overtly political title in the DC lineup, with allusions to real world events such as the controversy surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline and the election of Donald Trump playing huge roles in the development of the series. If you haven't tried this book yet, now's the time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Jul 12, 2017

    And while this was a decent issue, I didn't love it as much as past issues, but it still is good none the less. One thing i want to praise is Stephen Byrne's art, its just so good. He brings such a clean style to this series (not knocking Ferrerya and Schmidts art, just different styles) and it visually is so different. His inclusion just cements that Green Arrow (imo) is visually the best Rebirth comic. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Jul 5, 2017

    This is a solid team up. I like most of the conflict between the two and it is a lot of fun to see them fight together. The Black Canary/Red Arrow team up promises to be a lot of fun and I am excited for that. The art is fantastic and filled with wonderful moments. There are some character choices that I think are a little off but they're not huge problems. I recommend reading the issue. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Mazzacane Jul 6, 2017

    'Hard Traveling Hero' gets off to a strong start as the Emerald Archer begins to learn to make if not friends, partners, as he tries to take down his greatest foe. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 13, 2017

    Along with the team-up Green Arrow #26 reveals that the Ninth Circle is in to more than just framing goateed vigilantes for murder as the heroes discover the Black Hole (yet another villanious organization tied to the Circle) is performing Speed Force experiments. With more questions than either started out with, the pair decide to continue their team-up. I'll be curious to see where their journey takes them (if I can stomach that awful Flash costume for another issue). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jul 5, 2017

    This was one of the most fun issues of the series yet, which was slightly bogged down by the art. Byrne isn't as good as Juan Ferreyra and Otto Schmidt, although his art had moments of greatness. Branching out this book to have Oliver interact with a bunch of DC heroes is something I'm looking forward to see, which will make for a nice Green Arrow summer read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 6, 2017

    Overall, it's a fun little story. Benjamin Percy pretty neatly wings the Speed Force plot into Ollie's investigation of the Ninth Circle even if the connection isn't totally obvious at first. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jul 5, 2017

    This issue is visually stunning, but as of now, I'm not feeling this arc, and I'm really not looking forward to reading Green Arrow #27. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jul 6, 2017

    If this opening chapter of this story hadn't had such a bland threat then this could have been really good. Instead, it's just slightly better than average. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 5, 2017

    The Hard Traveling Hero story begins with a Flash/Green Arrow team-up that felt off and not much story to write home about.  The pieces are in place to hopefully give us something more going forward, but this start was a disappointment. Read Full Review
