The Arrow Cave Needs YOU!

Hi. I'm Aaron. This is my blog devoted entirely to The Green Arrow. Welcome.

I'm currently working on getting a few weeks' worth of material put together to make this a blog worth reading. I hope to have it up and running before the September 7 launch of the new Green Arrow #1

I plan to make this a fun place. I want to post synopses (with commentary) of various stories starring the Emerald Archer pulled from the nearly 70 years he's been in print. I will also be featuring things related to G.A.'s extended family- Black Canary, Speedy, Miss Arrowette, the JLA, etc.

So, what do I need from you, the reader? Well, apart from you stopping by occasionally to read the stuff I write about Green Arrow, I need some additional material and input. See, I have LOADS of Green Arrow comics from the 70's to the present. And I have quite a few Green Arrow toys in my collection I can feature as well as a few bits of Green Arrow merchandise. However, I would love for you, the reader, to e-mail me with photos of your personal Green Arrow collections. Send me a scan of that Green Arrow sketch you got at that comic con, a photo of some dude you saw walking around at San Diego or NY or Chicago dressed like Green Arrow. Heck, I'd even be interested in your stories about how you became a Green Arrow fan.

If I use your stuff, I'll give you credit on my blog and send you some sort of honorable mention certificate or a no-prize or something to be determined later.


  1. Congrats on the new blog! I look forward to following along. If you'd like, feel free to post about my fave Speedy action figure that I blogged about here:

  2. Good to see a Green Arrow fan out there! I heard about you on the Aquaman Shrine. I have to confess a certain fondness for GA just because he has a fascinating history--I've been meaning to get his Showcase Presents volume for a little while now. Hey, once you get settled I can send you an article! I'm thinking it'd be something that would show his evolution from a kind-of Batman spoof, to a JLA member, to the left-wing incarnation, and up until his death and beyond. It could be fun. Good luck with everything!

  3. @ Bubbashelby: Thanks for following. I'd love to use that post, it will save me the trouble of digging out my toys and photographing them! I'll giver you proper credit, of course.

    @ Adam Mudman: Sure, send it over. I'll give you guest-blogger credit if I use it.

  4. If you're taking requests, I love the Who's Who articles and would love to see entries in that vein for some of Green Arrow's lesser-known rogues. Guys like Bull's-Eye, Rainbow Archer, Slingshot, and Greenface.

  5. Jerry: Noted. I have some of those Who's Who entries and planned to post them eventually. I plan on doing a feature on Count Vertigo sometime soon.
