Verdict - 3.9

- We have a nice battle cover of Hawkman and Green Arrow fighting some Thanagarian Guards. I really enjoyed the art and coloring of this issue. I did have an problem with this issue like I did with Deathstroke #14 - Hawkman: Wanted, Part 3 of 6 in that I was confused how we were back with Green Arrow after Green Arrow #14 - Hawkman: Wanted, Part Two: Skywar. After reading the issue it becomes a little clearer but this is a big failure on DC's part. They could have done a better job IMO of setting up the issues so it became one fluid read. Even their own solicit seems confused about what's going on and what order to read it in. What we are left with is the issue that continues from Green Arrow #14 and finally concludes with what occurs at the end of Deathstroke #14. Personally I would have made this issue Part 3, remove the elements of Deathstroke and add more content about Green Arrow and Hawkman's interactions, before concluding with Deathstroke and Hawkman's battle. This would have flowed better into Deathstroke's issue and then into Hawkman #15. Overall though it was a good story, and the reason I'm reading Hawkman is because of the crossover with Green Arrow. It will be interesting to see how this are concludes next two issues.
