    As for the mystery, Mr. Johns comes up with a tidy solution that echoes in the halls of DC's acquisitions department, but honestly, the mystery is the least impressive element of the book. Hit him again! Hit him again! Read Full Review

    An issue that's a bit light in the plot department, but it does offer up a nice confrontation between Hawkman & Green Arrow, where we see Geoff Johns makes it clear that these two men are never going to get along, as Oliver seems to get an almost perverse thrill out of egging Hawkman on until he snaps. Then again given Hawkman's recent appearance over in the pages of Green Arrow's book, one can look at Oliver's behavior as payback for Hawkman's cautionary comments about Oliver renewing his relationship with the Black Canary. The issue also has itself a fairly nice surprise on the final page, as we see the villain looking to frame the Green Arrow for the recent string of killings in St. Roch, is one who made a couple memorable appearances in the latter stages of James Robinson's "Starman". This issue also allows artist Rags Morales to infuse the city of St. Roch with some atmosphere, and one can only hope it'll evolved into the next Opal City. Read Full Review
