DARK NIGHTS: METAL tie-in! "GOTHAM RESISTANCE" finale! The Gotham Resistance has fought its way through lands of fire, poison, destruction and fear, but no one was ready for the craziest showdown of all: Green Arrow and Black Canary, whose eternal lovers' quarrel goes medieval as the team marches into the hellish, mind-bending world of The Man Who Laughs to uncover the secret to defeating the hordes of the Dark Multiverse!

    Comic Book Corps - Eric Oct 4, 2017

    This issue was great. It picks up right after the Suicide Squad tie-in. The art is fantastic and we see some images of the Batman who laughs that no one should ever see. Overall the only complaint I can find with this story arc is how Oliver's hair grows when he puts on the medieval outfit. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 4, 2017

    Green Arrow should return to its standard programming next issue, but it was ironic that after the extended Hard Traveling Hero arc, Gotham Resistance delivered a better Green Arrow team-up story. This one was well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Oct 7, 2017

    Although Metal is just getting started, the Gotham Resistance story arc has been a well told crossover within the larger tale, and the high point so far, in my eyes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Oct 5, 2017

    I feel like I must have missed an issue of the Gotham Resistance crossover, because Green Arrow #32's script is really disorienting, and I had no idea why the heroes' costumes had changed so radically. This could have easily gone off the rails completely, but Juan Ferreyra's art once again proves to be the decisive factor in this book. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Oct 4, 2017

    The final portion of the story is a whole load of fun, but I had to slog through the initial story beats before getting there. The divide between these two sections feels very evident in that we have two writers credited here, but the art is just so fantastically stellar. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 5, 2017

    "Gotham Resistance" finds success because of a sum of its parts. While the issue itself is just ok, there are many developments the greatly add to Metal's story overall, and that gives this tie-in more prevalence and weight compared to other tie-ins. The original concept of "Gotham Resistance" appears to fall apart in this issue, but we do get a nice look into the Dark Multiverse, as well as some highly anticipated teases! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 10, 2017

    As such, if you have no interest in Metal, I cant recommend this issue to you. Wait for the next issue of Green Arrow (I hope). If you like both Ollie and Metal or have been following Gotham Resistance anyway, give this one a read. It is a visually stunning comic, and the story is pretty solid. Read Full Review

    WhatCulture - Ewan Paterson Oct 4, 2017

    It's gorgeous, riveting, comes with a killer reveal near the end and exemplifies pretty much everything there is to love about DC at the moment. Everything is so grand and bombastic and yet so personal at the same time, and that's where Metal seems to thrive. To maintain that feel in both an event and a tie-in comic at that is particularly brilliant, not least because it subverts expectations, but also because it exemplifies the strength of both the GA and Bat-books at the moment.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 4, 2017

    While the basic concept for these Gotham Resistance tie-ins kind of falls apart here, Percy and Williamson give us some good explanation about the Dark Multiverse villains which I liked. Juan Ferreyra's art was great and this felt important in the grand scheme of things. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Oct 9, 2017

    Though it has some problems with using certain villains, "Green Arrow" #32 provides a well-drawn, rather well written finale to the 'Gotham Resistance' sidestory to 'Dark Nights: Metal.' Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 10, 2017

    Green Arrow #32 does a satisfying job in closing out the Gotham Resistance crossover tie-in to Dark Nights: Metal. Carrying the momentum created by the previous chapters, both Benjamin Percy and Joshua Williamson were able to expand on chaotic things have gotten in the DC Universe since the Batman Who Laughs and company invaded. Through the chaos we were treated to a lot of quality character development that makes what role the Gotham Resistance plays in Dark Nights: Metal even more exciting to see. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Deron Murphree Oct 6, 2017

    This event has been an entertaining ride for sure, but now Im beginning to look for the exit. While this is an intriguing concept for an event, its starting to feel a bit over the top. Dont get me wrong, its been fun. Its just that its gone a little too long in my opinion. I am ready to get back to some good ol Green Arrow stories. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Oct 5, 2017

    This is an okay issue. There's nothing inherently wrong with it. It's well drawn and well written. Some of the action is cool and the imagery is effectively creepy. But it's pointless; there is no reason to read this. A minor detail is discovered but you don't need to read this to know that. It can, and probably will be, summed up in a line of dialogue in the next issue of Metal. It's a harmless tie in. It might be worth checking out for Ferreyra's art but that's the only appeal of this issue. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Oct 5, 2017

    In the end, that is the best thing that can be said about Green Arrow #32 " it accomplished what it set out to do. It brought Oliver Queen into the Dark Knights: Metal story-line and, much like Green Arrow himself, it did it with a certain ham-fisted style. Read Full Review
