Season 5 Cover Countdown: Birds of Prey #84 Season 5 Cover Countdown: Birds of Prey #84
With 84 DAYS to Arrow Season 5, here's another classic comic book cover... featuring the Huntress! Season 5 Cover Countdown: Birds of Prey #84

Every year on GreenArrowTV’s Twitter feed and Facebook page, we’d count down to the new season’s premiere with a classic Green Arrow-related comic book cover. After all, it was the comic books that inspired the TV series to begin with.

Since there had sometimes been confusion about the covers without any context, this year we’re going to describe the comic book covers that we are showing. The issue numbers on the comics will correspond to the number of days left before Season 5 begins. For example, there are 84 days left until Arrow Season 5, considering The CW has announced an October 5 premiere date.

Here’s today’s entry.


Birds of Prey #84

VendettaThe Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) is a character who weaved in and out of the Birds of Prey comic book series in its long run, and of course, she appeared on Arrow in multiple episodes as played by Jessica de Gouw. The Huntress even had a story in the tie-in comic books.

Surely partly due to de Gouw’s schedule, we haven’t seen the Huntress in a while, but maybe it’s time again, eh? Especially with vigilantes in Star City being an important part of Arrow Season 5.

This comic book that we posted the cover for was written by noted Arrow expert Gail Simone.

84 days are left to the Arrow season premiere – be sure to come back daily for more countdown posts! Past “Cover Countdown” posts can be found here.
