The script by Jake Coburn is action-packed and well-paced. I particularly enjoyed how he found a way to bring back one of the few trick arrows we've seen Ollie use in the show in a way that makes sense. There are some contrivances in the script - such as Ollie having brought his Arrow gear with him to a football game and just happening to look back and recognize a football player ex-con acting suspiciously - but none so bad as to strain credibility completely.
The artwork by Xermanico is far better than what we saw from them previously in Arrow #14. The established cast is well-caricatured as before but the inking issues I noted before have been corrected. There is still some loss of detail in the middle-ground characters but it's less annoying this time as the focus is on generic mooks rather than our main characters.
Bottom Line: This issue of Arrow is easily worth the one dollar download. It's not perfect, but it's a solid Green Arrow story.
