"HARD TRAVELING HERO" finale! For a year Oliver Queen has been one step behind the Ninth Circle. Now he knows why: an orbiting fortress from which the super-villain financial empire secretly spies, steals, buys, sells and kills everyone and everything Green Arrow needs to defeat them. And. It. Is. Going. DOWN. It'll take the whole Justice League to clean up the mess in this epic conclusion to the most star-studded GREEN ARROW story ever!

    This is a solid issue. The art is great and it's cool to see Ollie side by side with the League. The issue does a lot to prove that Ollie is a worthwhile hero in his own right, but being part of a team is often necessary. It's a fun read and I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 20, 2017

    The issue is not completely without flaw, however. The Black Canary/Red Arrow sub-plot settles itself far too quickly. And the final pages' connection toDark Knights: Metalfeels terribly forced. Yet despite these minor imperfections, Green Arrow #31 is a damn good book and it's one you should be reading. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 20, 2017

    Green Arrow #31 is a strong finale to what has been a fun arc. Ollie's part of the larger DCU without being fully drawn into Metal with his main title, which is a smart move by Percy. The Seattle based stories move along nicely here, and Schmidt brings the thunder to the end of this arc. One of the strongest books coming out of Rebirth, Green Arrow is still firing on all cylinders. Read Full Review

    A solid conclusion to the 'Hard Traveling Hero' story with great set-up for Green Arrow's role in 'Gotham City Resistance' and excellent art. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 19, 2017

    Green Arrow #31 is an end to the Hard Traveling Hero storyline, but it may not be the end of Oliver Queen's life on the road. With beautiful art and an all-around fun superhero story, this is a must-read for Green Arrow and DC comics fans alike. This story has definitely pushed Green Arrow in a new direction and it is going to be very exciting to see where the creative team takes the Emerald Archer from here! The hard travels are over, but the adventures are just beginning! Read Full Review

    I will not give away the final few pages of the book, but I will tell you it is a discussion between Ollie and the leaders of the DC Universe. The final couple of panels lend some insight into a certain two characters that are a lot alike. Percy has made me want to read every issue in this series and with this issues payoff I am a fan of his Green Arrow. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 24, 2017

    ‘Hard-Travelling Hero' receives a good ending here. Is it as epic as I had hoped, given the overall quality of the story arc? Not really. Is it disappointing? No. Its fun and high-energy, and the bad guy gets got. I still recommend it, and you should pick it up. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 20, 2017

    Even if this wasnt the strongest arc of the title, Hard Traveling Hero provided some fun team-ups and brought Green Arrow out of the shadows and shoulder to shoulder with DCs top heroes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 20, 2017

    While I still think the Hard Traveling Hero story lost it;s way under the weight of all the guest stars, this issue is the best of the bunch.  I still have a lot of unanswered questions, but this issue made me smile and that's something this book hasn't done in a while. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Sep 20, 2017

    While I admired the endgame and the execution of the ending, I didn't think it felt particularly earned despite how much Benjamin Percy clearly thinks it is. The art was stellar as I expected. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 2, 2017

    Green Arrow #31 gives us more of the classic chemistry between Ollie Queen and Hal Jordan that fans have been asking for since the launch of the New 52. Benjamin Percy delivers some quality character moments for both but the issue suffers from taking some lazy shortcuts in order to rush the plot in order to make room for the epilogue of the story. Six out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 20, 2017

    A good wrap up with some fun character beats, but it doesn't quite feel like a big finale in the grand scheme of things. Read Full Review
