"Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino hit the bullseye perfectly with Green Arrow. Sharply written and featuring beautiful artwork, this is another hidden gem in the New 52 crown."--Craveonline
"Great writing, awesome artwork, fun premise and looks of cool action? Yep, Green Arrow's got it all."--IGN "Sorrentino is quickly headed for superstar status with his work on Green Arrow, and his partnership with Lemire---who is also a skilled visual storyteller---is pushing the artist to new levels of excellence."--A.V. Club/The Onion "This is most certainly going to be one of the best looking books of the year if Sorrentino keeps getting scripts from Lemire that show off his best work."--Comic Book Resources
