ATTENTION Green Arrow Fans! (Arrow Heads?) While checking some of my traffic sources for this blog, I found a great blog connected to a podcast called "Behind the Panels". They are currently running a great series on the history of the Emerald Archer. Stop by and check them out here
I stumbled across this little beauty at Target (LOL- Where else would you find a Green Arrow, but in a Target?) while shopping with my kids. Sadly, I couldn't take him home, but he's on my list! It's so nice to see Green Arrow represented in a current, children's toy line. They also now offer a Cyborg/Red Tornado two pack! What's next? Dr. Fate? Firestorm? Composite Superman? Who knows?
For the fist time, Green Arrow and Speedy are not sharing the cover with the stock art head of The Spectre, nor is there any mention of Aquaman or Johnny Quick. I'd say our heroes have arrived. Or I would if it wouldn't take another 40 years for GA to get his own title!
And so begins Speedy's willingness to experiment with recreational pharmaceuticals.
"Time to get down to Earth, you in the tin pants!"- Yeah, well at least he's wearing pants, Ollie!
The (obvious) idea of teaming the Battling Bowmen up with Robin Hood and his Merry Men is such a natural it was done again in the Silver Age and once more in the early 90's!
I thought, with this being Valentine's day week and all, that we'd go with posts that show the Emerald Archer's more... romantic side.
While making out with the girlfriend of a guy who can burn you to a cinder with a dirty look may be dangerous, it's not all that hard. After all, as Lana Lang knows all too well, Lois will spread 'em for anything in tights.
Now, now, calm down! Actually Lois is kissing Green Arrow (and Batman and Aquaman) for a very good cause which is fully laid out in Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane #29.
I've already used the wonderful cover to this for an earlier post and this issue is a particular favorite of mine. I know it's a big hit with my wife as well. That's no surprise though. Not only is she a huge Lois Lane fan, I'm pretty sure the inside of her imagination looks like this 90% of the time:
