In the second part of this story arc we see flash and green arrow tracking the ninth circle, the cabal responsible for decline of Seattle and rise of Star City. Side note, in a differentiation between GA and Batman it is the flash that uses his forensic skills to get clues as Ollie is not a detecting vigilante. I found that little tidbit interesting, but am probably reading too much into Percy's script. Oliver then travels to D.C. where he is confronted by wonder woman. And this doesn’t seem like a gimmick cameo cashing in on the success of WW movie, after all this comic was presumably made before the movie was released.

Meanwhile Black Canary and Emi are battling the ninth circle beneath star city.  This issue has a good amount of action and minimal hero fighting hero so there is that. Basically The Green Arrow squad, or team Arrow are fighting the cabal on two fronts in DC and Star city. There wasn’t a lot of revelation in this issue but there was some classic Oliver Queen exposition. It seems like Percy not only “gets” green arrow, but is determined through both the main character and his interactions with his supporting cast to return the hero to his roots. In fact this arc is a subtle and not so subtle homage to the classic O’Neill green lantern green arrow series.

The art is truly gorgeous unlike that in most comics. It seems inspired by Alex Ross but it is different enough to be appreciated for its own style.

Rating: 7.5 /10
