    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 9, 2008

    Considering the situation with Connor being kidnapped and critically injured, you'd think there'd be some sense of urgency or at least some emotion from these people. They're all laughing it up and by the looks of things, they don't seem to be in any hurry to find him, if they even recall that's what the point of this whole thing is. Under different pretenses, this could probably be a decent, light hearted romp, and the opening with Hal was perfect, when taken out of context, but right now, this boggles the mind.

    As I've said a million times over the last six months of Green Arrow/Black Canary reviews, all this book really needs is a singular direction. Winick nearly achieved this with this issue, and honestly, if he'd used this comedic approach within the context of a less serious subject, it might've worked for the whole story arc as well- a revelation, I believe, which might bode well for the title's future, assuming that the author continues to veer away from such melodramatic gimmickry with his next main plotline.

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Apr 14, 2008

    The battle with Mace Boy is underwhelming, and the final revelation only underlines what weve always known: Green Arrow is a Batman imitation. Because hes the imitation, he has more flaws, and he gets to have a wife (rather than just doomed girlfriends). But must he have the same villains, too? After all the changes of One Year Later, and then the gritty recent mini-series, this more humorous and fluffy title has yet to find a way to balance the jokes with any sense of urgency. And though Dinah has had some showcase moments of physical prowess, shes definitely a supporting character in her husbands story. Can we expect her turn to come, given their shared billing?
