    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson May 23, 2023

    Green Arrow #2 is an excellent issue. Fast-paced writing that gets into the main character's head and knows the supporting cast without fail. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 23, 2023

    It hasn't taken long for this title to warrant inclusion onto my most anticipated monthly titles list from DC. The fresh scenario and compelling secondary plot has Green Arrow and friends locked up for what hopefully should be a lengthy and entertaining run. Read Full Review

    Another slam dunk in this monstrously successful revival of the Emerald Archer. Fast, fun, what's not to love? Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 23, 2023

    This is an incredibly promising issue, and the second great one in a row. It could be the A-list run Green Arrow hasn't had since the heyday of Kevin Smith. Read Full Review

    The storylines lack solid firmament, but the overall quality of the writing, character work and art make this an enjoyable comic to check out. Read Full Review

    Joshua Williamson, Sean Izaakse, and Romulo Fajardo's Green Arrow continues to be a lot of fun with flashy fight sequences and an emphasis on the found family dynamic. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg May 23, 2023

    Issue #2 brilliantly builds on the foundations of last month. It's clear that Williamson has a plan for Oliver and the rest of the Green Arrow cast but at the same time he isn't revealing all his plans right away. The various elements feel more balanced this month as the story digs in to its Dawn of DC connections and sets up some interesting storytelling for next month. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 23, 2023

    Sure, its still incredibly early in the story to get all our answers. However, some direction or story nuggets need to be addressed in order to keep fans locked into the story. Truthfully, its not a bad start, however, it could be a bit better. Right now, I think fans are still just riding high on the fumes of a revitalized Green Arrow title. Nevertheless, those fumes can only last so long before fans are going to need something a bit more substantial to sink their teeth into. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz May 23, 2023

    Williamsons giving us a serviceable mini, but hes trying to throw in everything and the kitchen sink into the plot that its starting to become a bit of a drain on the flow of the book. On top of the plot, were also dealing with a cast that is too bloated to get any kind of significant character development here, and the characters and fans are the ones suffering for it. Fortunately Sean Izaakses art has helped me overlook some things, but if Williamson cant pull this together, I fear Ollies first solo in six years will be a bust. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 23, 2023

    Green Arrow #2 is a generally good comic with great art, great action, emotional weight, and gobs of character motivation. However, issue #2 isn't as good as issue #1 for a few reasons - namely, over-designed costumes, over-used tropes, and yet another unnecessary appearance by Peacemaker. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 5, 2023

    The second issue doesn't attempt to make sense or shed light on events of the first issue. However, we do see what Oliver Queen has been up to since being stranded on an alien world (his basic street-level heroics taking on space mobsters and the like) and Cheshire Cat joins in on his latest run-in with a paid enforcer to take Ollie down.
