  1. Lemire’s first two issues have felt really over written, not badly written but so many pages have been weighed down by huge blocks of text. Hopefully the plot jumps forward a bit here.

    Great art though. One of the few DC books that really has it’s own look.

  2. I am liking this series a lot, reminds of be Bendis/Maleev Daredevil.

  3. I was really hoping to like this more than I did. The art style just isn’t my thing.

  4. Best looking issue. Those two single page spreads in the middle were gorgeous. That said, the plot’s still moving at a snail’s pace. And you’d think being shot with seven arrows might bother him at some point?::)

    Good issue, 4/5.

  5. Superb issue. Hands down my POTW. I’m glad they changed the colorist from issue 17. It was cool, but it looks better now.

  6. I’m thanking God that Green Arrow has a great writer again……I had never read any of Lemire’s work before, but the hype was true! I’m hooked on GA again (I had dropped it at #9), and it’s good to see that DC has made at least one great choice this year with creative teams.

    I’m loving the “gritty” artwork! Although I’m not usually a fan of that style, it works with “down-to-earth” characters like GA, DD, & Punisher. It just seems (in my humble opinion) to add to the “real” aspect of a man with a bow and arrow fighting for justice. I didn’t like Maleev at first (on his & Bendis’ Daredevil “run”), but it grew on me over time because it was perfect for how & where they were taking the character. I hope they keep this team together on Green Arrow for a while!!!

    @poopyfacetomatonose……it does remind me a little of the Bendis/Maleev Daredevil, but I’m trying not to make too many comparisons. Different creative team, different character, and although DD & GA do share some common traits….I’m trying to see them each as their own “man”, rather than copies. I think in the end, I’ll enjoy GA’s series much more that way.

  7. Loving the art. Loving Lemire. Thank you for saving our beloved Ollie from the DC oblivion to which he was headed. This issue is beginning to make me feel like there’s hope for this book again!
