"LESS THAN" part one! At Superman's request, Green Arrow escorts Parasite back to Stryker's Island Prison, but Parasite feeds off the super-powers of the other inmates, breaks away from Arrow and causes a prison riot. On his own, with only the arrows in his quiver, Green Arrow will have to keep all the villains at bay and take out an overpowered Parasite!

    This is a fun issue. It's fairly over the top which works in its favor. Ollie is so outmatched that it's actually fairly comedic when he succeeds. I think Scott is aware of this and the intention was to create a fairly outlandish story. It absolutely works; I had a good time with this. The art's great too so definitely check this one out.

    I'm looking forward to the Bensons sisters' run on Green Arrow, but if this issue was any indication, hopefully Scott has more opportunities to write more of the character in the future. And with DC in general. Read Full Review

    But what the heck, this issue looks so damn good that it is worth picking up, even if the following issues dont pan out the way I would like. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 9, 2018

    Green Arrow #41 is another charming, fun, and engaging issue from DC's most opinionated hero. The plot is simple yet great, and the Ollie Queen is once more well represented in the comic. The art is solid too, and the comic earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Clayton Hinojosa Jun 6, 2018

    This issue was both action packed and filled with just the right amount of humor. Some suspenseful things are brewing for Green Arrow as he secures Stryker's underground as he continues his hunt for Parasite. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 6, 2018

    Thanks to that, and Mairghread Scott's flawless portrayal of Oliver Queen's inner voice, the execution is far better than the base concept. The artwork is also amazing, with Matthew Clark, Sean Parsons and Jason Wright offering up a classic comic-book running battle that unfolds with a clearly defined sense of style and a perfect sense of pacing.

    This issue might not pack the overall punch that last week's Green Arrow Annual did, but it's still a pretty enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Ian Cameron Jun 16, 2018

    This two-parter begins fairly well writing-wise, as Mairghread Scott shows she knows how to show off Green Arrow's more compelling character-traits, and conveys his snarky attitude when stressed pretty effectively. However the book might've benefited from a different art team, or perhaps a bit more lead-in time to prep the pages, as the prison feels a bit to spare in details for my taste, and the action, while overall cohesive, isn't particularly visually interesting. Overall, it's an efficient, enjoyable start to a Green Arrow story but maybe not one too memorable. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 6, 2018

    With the series in between big stories, Scott takes a minimalist approach to her Green Arrow story, paring back the supporting cast and focusing solely on Ollie in a tense, intimate story that pits him against an army of supervillains. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Jun 16, 2018

    A nice offering from a creative team I was unfamiliar with. Worth picking up as you wait for #43, but if you choose to pass it over, you wont be worse for wear for missing it. Read Full Review

    It might not be on the same level of social relevance as the last run, but I was entertained and I have a good feeling about the next issue! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jun 6, 2018

    It's hard for me to get behind a hero like Green Arrow being trapped in prison with powered people and all it takes is a bunch of trick arrows to dispatch them. There's no sense of desperation, or feeling that he might not make it out of this. Like I said, by the numbers. Thankfully, Matt Clark's gets to play with the different powered villains, trick arrows and a certain situation in a vent that's pretty funny. His art is this issues saving grace from total mediocrity. Hopefully, next issue's conclusion to this story offers more surprises than the beginning did. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 6, 2018

    This is just a generic placeholder until the Bensons take over the book in August.  While the art was good, there was nothing here that felt fresh and even though there is plenty of action, the overall feeling I had reading it was boredom.  Unless you are collecting this entire Rebirth run, you can skip this entirely.
