"THE KILLING TIME"! In a tale from happier but no less dangerous times, Green Arrow labors to train a new apprentice who's every bit as deadly as his fiercest villains: a teenage girl. But before Emiko and Ollie can embrace as brother and sister, they have to save Seattle from a foe that can see the future of anyone he chooses-anyone, that is, except for Emiko Queen...

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 22, 2016

    This new Green Arrow series embodies the strength of DC Comics new Rebirthline. This book is both easily accessible to new readers while illustrating everything that made these characters beloved icons in the first place. If you're an old-school Arrow-head who has been left wanting over the past decade of lackluster Green Arrow and Black Canary stories, rejoice! Your homecoming is here. Read Full Review

    Overall, I cannot wait for the rest of Percy's story and, who knows, maybe a potential shift in artistic tone to something a bit lighter? It is a great time to be a Green Arrow fan with not only this fantastic Rebirth, but also the show returning on the CW (hopefully back to its street level roots form earlier seasons). ComicsVerse and GA fans, be on the lookout for my articleon what I wantin Season 5 of GREEN ARROW in the next few weeks! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Sep 21, 2016

    This conclusion to the brief interlude following the restoration of Oliver Queen to “life” is a terrific character-based entry that really gives us a flavor of what Percy has in mind for the Green Arrow “universe” as a whole. More than that, by the end of this issue, we can see how a few extra characters from bygone eras of Arrow can be dragged back into the world, and that is incredibly exciting. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 21, 2016

    Ben Percy ends his Sins of the Mother mini arc with a whole lot of action and while I had fun, it was a bit forced.  Still, it doesn't take itself too seriously and it looks amazing!  This Emiko story has put Green Arrow back up their with my favorites of Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 21, 2016

    Those minor gripes are hardly enough to not recommend the issue. Even when it's not dead-on target, Green Arrow continues to be one of DC's best titles and easier recommendations. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Sep 22, 2016

    Credit is due to artist Stephen Byrne, because whether or not you enjoy this brief interlude before we rejoin Ollie in issue #8, at least it features some great art. Emi's present day battle in The Arena is the more compelling storyline, and as such Byrne's art pops off these pages. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of fun and action packed content to be devoured in this issue. Most importantly, you'll come away respecting and liking Emi more than ever. Read Full Review

    And whilst Emi herself proves to be the one saving grace ofGreen Arrow #7, the issue's villain is a huge let down. Emerging from out of nowhere, and then revealing himself to be a dragon. And by dragon – we do mean, scales, claws and fire-breathing. It all feels a little too much. It's as if the writers had too many ideas for sub-plots, and crammed them together to create a disorientated story that jumps back and forth a little too much. IT looks like the next issue will circle back around to Oliver again, thankfully. And whilst it's clear that sometimes it's good to break off from the norm,Green Arrow #7 just isn't one of those instances. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Oct 7, 2016

    While the stories inconsistencies have been problematic the artwork has remained pristine. Every time I get frustrated with the words on the page I take a step back to appreciate gorgeous pages. I am happy to see this story arc end. The downside to that is Bryne will not be on the next book. Otto Schmidt is going to have a lot to live up to after these past few issues. Read Full Review
