96 DAYS to Arrow Season 5! Here's another classic cover from the 1990s Green Arrow comic. Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow #96

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 96 days left until Arrow Season 5, considering The CW has announced an October 5 premiere date.

Here’s today’s entry.


Green Arrow #96

This 1995 issue happened during the time between Hal Jordan becoming Parallax and Oliver Queen’s death — clearly, both of them got better. Hal reveals some big news to Oliver in this classic story — Oliver has a son, and he had better not tell Felicity. Okay, so that last part didn’t happen.

96 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.
