    Marcio Takara does the art on this issue, and it is perfectly suited to the tale. Grim and gritty, Green Arrow is placed into a wasteland of ruins, and all of the characters look like they have seen better days. One can feel the dirt and sweat on all of the characters. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 4, 2018

    Green Arrow was one of the most consistent Rebirth titles so I was leery of the new creative team coming on board. This first issue is promising and suggests theres plenty of reasons to be excited about the new Green Arrow creative team. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 3, 2018

    Green Arrow #39 is a promising first step for the new creative team, capturing the adventure mixed with political commentary that makes a truly great Green Arrow story. Takara and Maiolo bring some impressive talent to the table too. This one gets a recommendation. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 4, 2018

    All in all, I am glad I jumped back on Green Arrow. The new creative team is delivering a very interesting story. Green Arrow is fighting against a new villain in Nothing and by the end of Green Arrow #39, the emerald archer is in some deep trouble.Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly create a good jumping on point for new readers and start this new story off with a bang, whileMarcio Takara andMarcelo Maiolo deliver some superb artwork. I hope the bi-weekly schedule does not throw Takara off of Green Arrow for the next issue. But, the story is interesting enough in its own right to hold me for another issue at least.

    The art was good in this issue. It helped the war torn towns look their part and gave awesome visuals to the last fight scene. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 4, 2018

    It's perfectly readable, but it's trying for a lot of the same social commentary as Priest's Justice League and Deathstroke. It's just not nearly as smooth about it. Read Full Review

    This issue is fine. There's a lot of potential and good ideas. The art is solid. Ultimately, it doesn't do much for me but I am still curious to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 3, 2018

    This was a boring issue and it should be skipped. It's clear this is just nonsense filler work so you'd best save your money until the Bensons and Fernandez jump on. The story is paper thin boring, and the art is even weak. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 4, 2018

    I realize this issue is a placeholder to get to the Benson's run this summer, but it doesn't have to read so much like one.  The story is cliched, the situation is over-explained and yet under-explained at the same time and while I liked the art, I would suggest you skip this.  Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 2, 2018

    Green Arrow #39 does not negate Percy's work on Green Arrow. It would be giving the creative team far too much credit to suggest they were even capable of that. Green Arrow #39 does stand, however, as a stark reminder of the sorts of comics that made DC Rebirth necessary in the first place. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Apr 4, 2018

    Overall this was a very mediocre and dissapointing issue altogether, which sucks because it had some really good ideas but not enough time to really make these ideas work. This arc very much feels like the filler that it is until the new creative team takes over but they still could have put more effort into it. Read Full Review
