The issue is a bit of a reunion for all the element of “Team Arrow,” a phrase I hate. I regard it as borne of the TV show, in which a lone vigilante has somehow assembled a team of other heroes, sort of s ub-Justice League. It bothers me to see heroes who insist they are are loners join team after team after team.
In this case, all eyes are on Oliver Queen as he prepares for his coming court battle, which, as is said in the story, is less about the fate of Oliver Queen and more about the fate of Star City. But details of that will have to wait until next issue.
Juan Ferreyra is the artist on deck for this issue. I like his work very much, though it sometimes reminds me of the painted illustrations from Heavy Metal back in the 1980s. That’s not a bad thing, mind you. In the case of Green Arrow, it works quite well. Though I wish there could be ONE artist drawing an entire story arc, soup to nuts. Until DC Comics ends the bimonthly, publishing schedule, I doubt we’ll see it.
