Comic Review: Arrow: Dark Archer #7

The art justified the chapter when the script was merely serviceable.

Synopsis: After a fierce explosion rocks The Hidden’s base camp, Arthur King, a.k.a. Malcolm Merlyn, discovers a traitor in their midst!

Review: This issue contained more set up. Characters react to the explosion. Characters react to the traitor. Merlyn is caught in a lie. Ra’s al Ghul had the only character beat that stood out to me, during which he acted like his comic canon counterpart. The art justified the chapter when the script was merely serviceable. Daniel Sampere and company went into full Indiana Jones mode. I loved the final panel of leaping spectral snow leopards as the tomb shook.
