    One of the best comic book runs of the year finally returns and hits the ground running with even more reverence for Oliver Queen's history than ever. Read Full Review

    Paired with the story, you get something that feels like a throwback for long-time readers and fans of Green Arrow while also being new enough for those who haven't had a chance to truly take in this character. It's just so very, very, very good. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 27, 2023

    Green Arrow has been a solid read for DC since this run got started. It seems like Williamson is about to reveal some significant plot points next issue based on the cliffhanger, which should make for another exciting installment. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 26, 2023

    I do think this series has such a high level of ambition that it can be hard to juggle all the characters and timelines, but I think Williamson handles the task as well as he possibly can. It helps that he's one of the few writers in a long time to really capture Ollie's unique chaotic energy, as well as the fact that he's using so many great deep cuts from DC continuity. This title is really one that needed the expansion to twelve issuesand it deserves it too. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 26, 2023

    Green Arrow #4 continues to prove why this title is one of DC's big winners, especially in this Dawn of DC era that's absolutely soaked in an embarrassing wealth of amazing comics. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Sep 26, 2023

    It's take a little while for Green Arrow to win me over. Its high-concept setting is unique for a character who normally exists to fight street level crime unless he's with the Justice League. But Williams' capable storytelling and its robust emotional foundations continue to drive home what is one of DC's most compelling solo series. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 26, 2023

    Green Arrow #4 felt like it had so much potential with the reintroduction of Parallax as well as the time travel component of the story. However, the easy tropes almost handcuffed the issue and took away from what could have been a pretty epic installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 30, 2023

    The deeper we are getting with this intro Multiverse arc for Green Arrow the more the ambition is showing to be to great for the story to handle. There are a lot of cool elements, such as the Legion of Super Heroes and Parallax usage, but the story is just not hitting with Oliver Queen at the center. Hopefully the way Green Arrow #4 ended will be a sign this story will finally start having positive progress forward rather than going in circles. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 27, 2023

    Green Arrow #4 gives readers excellent art (except for the costume redesigns), cool character moments, and a cathartic fight. That said, the plot centers around a mystery with no clues and no believability, so the entire journey is just plain boring. Read Full Review
