"THE TRIAL OF TWO CITIES" part two! It's a revelation Ollie Queen could never have imagined, even in his darkest dreams. Long thought dead, his mother, Moira, is alive; she's a leader of the Ninth Circle; she's responsible for destroying Seattle; and because of Green Arrow, her partners are going to kill her. Moira needs Ollie's protection, not just from any assassin: she is the former lover of Moira's late husband. She is the mother of Ollie's half-sister, Emiko. She is Green Arrow's deadliest enemy. She is Shado.

    This is a great issue. Byrne's art is gorgeous with great action, panel layouts and character moments. Percy accomplishes a lot in this issue but it never feels rushed. There's a lot of story here and it works. As a fan of Lemire's run, I appreciate how much Percy is using it to move his story forward. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    But any issue that features even a little Green Arrow and Black Canary interaction is nearly a lock for at least one great moment. Percy is great with that dynamic and I wish hed spend more time with DCs colorful romantic vigilantes. That always tends to be the best aspect of his Green Arrow run. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Nov 2, 2017

    Juan Ferreyra is just in a class of his own. But even the best art can't hide one of the weaker issues of this book's DC Rebirth era. Hopefully this title will bounce back quickly. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 7, 2017

    This comic is an entertaining read, even if its pacing is a bit slow. Its high on plot and character but low on action. I still recommend it though because Percy is a master of keeping the dialogue energetic and entertaining. Its an interesting read, even if there arent that many arrows flying this time around. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Dec 29, 2017

    My othercomplaint is the cover by Jamal Campbell. It depicts Green Arrow under the bowof Merlyn, and the caption At the Mercy of Merlyn. But no such scene takesplace in this issue; not even close. One might think with the artists availableto DC, one of them might be able to knock out a generic pin-up style cover,instead of publishing this mistake. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Nov 1, 2017

    This isn't a bad issue by any means, but it does nothing special at the same time. The art is almost mediocre while the story is fun but not as deep as I thought it would be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Eric Nov 1, 2017

    The issue was a bit scattered. Overall there were a few to many stories. The art is just as gorgeous as ever. I highly recommend this series, even with this arc being a little convoluted. The rest of the series more than makes up for it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kasandra Miranda Nov 9, 2017

    Storyline was ok, I know this issue was building up for the next one but it didn't seem like the scenes were pieced well together and were kind of all over the place. The cover was deceiving but the artwork was great and very detailed. Next issue should hopefully be smoother and show more action. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 3, 2017

    The whole plot involving Moira's resurrection has killed the momentum of Oliver's trial and I'm eager for it to be resolved so that we can move on to more interesting stories. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 1, 2017

    Ben Percy seems to be relying on past plot points and characters to tell his story, but it all feels unearned and uninteresting.  I liked the art in this issue, but this book needs to move on to something more interesting...stat! Read Full Review
