The Art, Colors and Letters:

The artistic team of Phil Hester, Eric Gapstur, and Sean Izaakse brings Green Arrow #12 to life with stunning visuals. The night sky scenes, where Oliver narrates his sacrifices and future expectations, are particularly breathtaking. The concept of the stars forming the shape of what is missing in Oliver’s life within smaller panels is a brilliant touch, emphasizing his sense of emptiness.

The depiction of the Arrow Family sharing the pages throughout the story is beautifully rendered, capturing the essence of their reunion. The fight sequence with Merlyn is a highlight, showcasing the beloved dueling arrows panels that fans adore. The beat-for-beat choreography of the battle is both dynamic and satisfying.

Troy Peteri’s lettering enhances the narrative flow, intensifying the pace during fight scenes and slowing it down during the emotional family moments. This careful pacing allows readers to fully immerse themselves in the story’s highs and lows.
