I liked this issue and I like where Lemire is taking this Green Arrow. We’re light years away from the gadgets and Q-Core and all the gee-whizzery of the relaunched Green Arrow. Komodo and his daughter are serious villains and Ollie takes a lot of punishment here. I also like the idea of a significant backstory to explore. The art by Sorrentino feels really fresh and unlike anything else DC is doing right now. That difference is especially welcome when a lot of DC’s books share a very similar art style. Looking forward to the rest of this arc.

  1. I was sorely disappointed with this book. The preceding 2 issues showed a lot of promise and then Lemire drops this turd on us. I feel no like no friggin secrets were revealed and we’re no closer to finding out anything about his dad OR the island.

    I’m all for a slow boil but come on, how many issues do we have to buy to uncover something that could be told with half an issue. It’s over and out for me with this book. It sucked. I’m fine with reading about Ollie solely in the pages of Justice League of America

    • I get that its a slow burn but I like the unraveling of the mystery is slow while the other action of the story is almost frenetic. The difference is complementary to me.
