    While it's unbelievably bittersweet that this series is coming to an end, this issue simultaneously feels like a fitting finale, as well as really intriguing groundwork for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Mar 6, 2019

    Almost three years later, this fitting conclusion isn't just a rousing last hurrah for a character, but a reminder that Ollie Queen will always remain the bleeding heart and the conscience of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Its only a matter of time before Oliver Queen gets another book. I hope its as strong as the last few issues of this run have been. Read Full Review

    I don't know what DC has planned for Green Arrow in the future. After the loss of Roy, Dinah's betrayal, and the box's contents have definitely impacted Oliver: similarly to his time on the island. He survives this issue to become a different man. Whatever happens with the Justice League, he may play a role. Green Arrow gets an ending fitting of the life of Oliver Queen. A ton of action and misfortune for the Emerald Archer makes for a good read. Read Full Review

    Javier Fernandez shines in these sequences with his dynamic art providing an intense adrenaline rush. Green Arrow was a good for for his hyper kinetic and dramatic style and Im hoping DC has another appropriate title for him. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 13, 2019

    Ollie's discovery at the end of the issue cements his disappointment with all things hero related, apprently moving the Emerald Archer off the grid (again). Hrm. As for Black Canary, she does help Ollie escape but can't go with him as DC opens a new path for the character to explore sans archer. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    For a final issue, this is somewhat underwhelming. Obviously Green Arrow isn't going away forever but this issue feels more like a season finale as opposed to a series finale. It leaves major cliffhangers instead of resolving any kind of mystery. The consequences of Ollie's decision on his relationship with Dinah is really engaging and I like those scenes a lot. I do appreciate that the final issue feels as personal and intimate as this does. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 6, 2019

    There's a lot going on here, and it feels like this arc had to be wrapped up several issues early. I'm not sure what comes next for Ollie, but this wrap-up didn't quite stick the landing. And we still don't know why Emiko left! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 8, 2019

    Recently I have criticised Marvel for the number of times books like Captain Marvel have gone through a restart, failed then restarted again. This phenomenon isn't just a Marvel trend; Green Arrow is certainly on the same list. Additionally, for such a popular character, this is the second book within a year featuring Black Canary that has been cancelled, not counting her own pre-Rebirth book. Maybe these types of characters, Green Arrow included, work better as ancillary characters, characters that can bounce of others. Hopefully this isn't the last the we see of Ollie and Dinah, but for their books to work the pair need top tier creators. Read Full Review

    This is worth reading. It's fun to think about what could have been in store for Green Arrow under this creative team, but this little three issue run was overall a success for me. Strange choices were made, the storytelling didn't always make sense to me, but there was a clear passion for this run and this character and for that I need to give it props. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 6, 2019

    The story just kind of fizzles out, while the art doesn't do it any favors in my opinion.  There was a lot at stake it seemed here, until there just wasn't, but things are still left open in a way that leaves me frustrated because while answers are what you obviously want out of this issue...... it seems like the questions in general were just ignored to give an all out battle for Green Arrow, while leaving the character whimpering by the end.  Not a satisfying ending.
