    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jan 3, 2018

    It seems that Benjmain Percy is trying to clear the series of those elements that were introduced in order to better emulate the TV series Arrow. Even if this isn't the case, this is one issue every Arrow-head will want to pick up! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 3, 2018

    This was a great issue of Green Arrow that I didnt want to end. And that was long before that nerve-wracking and very unpredictable cliffhanger. Hopefully the resolution will come in two weeks, but either way its going to prove worth the wait. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 4, 2018

    This issue is drawn by Juan Ferreyra, and that's really all you need to know about how terrific it is. But what makes this issue stand out is that Benjamin Percy delivers a script that's almost as great as Ferryra's art, and the result is one of the absolute best issues of their already stellar run on this book.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 4, 2018

    Ollie's trial for murder still hanging around in the background, and with a killer of a cliffhanger, this certainly isn't the end to this narrative, but Percy appears to be having the time of his life getting us there. We are too. Read Full Review

    This is a strong issue. Percy moves the story forward in an effective and quick pace that is engaging. Ferreyra's art is incredible throughout. I have minor gripes with one scene of dialogue and I'm trepidatious about the ending. But it's an enjoyable story that looks amazing. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 8, 2018

    Green Arrow #36 moves the plot forward to a good degree and has many good moments between its cast of characters. It has some good twists and turns too, and Juan Ferreyras artworks is stunning as always. I recommend this one quite strongly, and you should check it out. Read Full Review

    The team continues to build each other up as they keep going on their fight against the Ninth Circle. Beyond being just a team, they are feeling more like a family together and hopefully their parents don't end up destroying everything they have built. Read Full Review

    While Ferreyra's art has never let me down, I was surprised to find that I was satisfied with the story as well. Percy does a keep job as maintaining my interest and the final page has me excited for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 2, 2018

    Ben Percy puts the story on hold a bit to give readers and rescue and a fight.  It's a quick read that is full of excitement and isn't half bad because of it.  I wouldn't want every issue to be like this, but once in a while is fine. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 3, 2018

    I realizethat may diminish the story some, that perhaps without the betrayal there wouldbe no story. But hey, how good of a story can it be if it hinges on oneover-used gimmick? Do these guys not read each others material? Do they evercompare notes? Dont the editors ever have a sit-down to make sure some of thetitles arent mirroring one anothers narratives? Read Full Review

    Ninth Circle seems like the perfect type of an organization to stand against Green Arrow, representing everything he opposes - totalitarian, corrupt power hungry machine. Sadly, by fighting an apparent multinational giant, and a cartoony one I should add, Green Arrow loses what normally makes him so relatable - being more or less grounded, street level vigilante.

    So far the Ninth Circle centric arcs took him to Bond-like mountain bases, tunnels below seas, outer space, and now, the bottom of the ocean. All of it feels like a sort of Court of Owls ripoff, cranked up to 11 and not planned properly first. The recent issue, unfortunately continues this saga, and even the cliffhanger doesn't seem to save it from being rather forgettable, feeling more like a spy soap opera than an ambitious, emotional run of Green Arrow comics it was planned as.
    On the other hand, if you've enjoyed previous issues, you most likely are going to like this one as well. You already know what to expect from the run, and this issue gives only more of that.

    I really hope this Ninth Circle storyline ends soon. It's just felt like spinning wheels for so very long, with twists and turns thrown in there to keep it 'fresh', only it doesn't work. Red Arrow's 'sarcastic commentary' as Green Arrow puts it doesn't work for me, it's just jarring. I was happy when this book went monthly because I wasn't enjoying it that much, but then I realized it'd just make the Ninth Circle stuff last longer so I lost that one.
