Green Arrow #46 Review

Green Arrow 46 continues the Citizen story arc, but has a completely different feel than the earlier parts of this story. The issue plays out far more like a police procedural, as Arrow and Black Canary track down the identity of the masked villain.

It’s another very well written tale, and the change of style works very well. I particularly loved Canary being referred to as Lady Columbo.

The pace is good, and the storytelling is intelligent. This is not a matter of finding some obscure clue, this is doing straight out detective work and applying logic and determination.

Not to say that the story lacks action. It’s packs a punch when it needs to, and ends with a very good cliffhanger.

Every issue that the Bensons have written has impressed me. As a long time Green Arrow fan, I am very glad that these women are helming the book at the moment.

German Peralta does the art on this issue. It’s in a highly realistic style, which suits the storyline perfectly. And yet, at the same time, Peralta shows a lot of creativity in the layouts and camera angles, and the action scenes look great.

This is solid storytelling with strong visuals. A down to earth, yet fulling engaging, issue.

Rating: 9 /10
