Comic Review: Arrow: Dark Archer #5

This issue is my favorite so far.

Synopsis: Malcolm Merlyn a.k.a. Arthur King’s secrets continue to unravel after he and his partner survive a brutal sandstorm!

Review: This issue is my favorite so far. The reader is given a mix of exposition and rising action. One character is revealed to be an external meta-human with magic-based powers (giving the bats their due), and another is revealed to be a mole. The clues are also continuing to mount for yet another secret child story line in the Arrow universe. C’est la vie. Additionally, Daniel Sampere Juan Albarran, and Kyle Ritter continued to beautifully render the landscapes for the caves and the Hindu Kush. I’m looking forward to Issue #6.
