Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow Annual #7 Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow Annual #7
With 7 DAYS to Arrow Season 5, we have another classic comic book cover. Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow Annual #7

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. We were hoping to do this daily, but kind of fell behind a bit.. now we’re back and ready to post more!

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

Here’s today’s entry.


Green Arrow Annual #7 (1995)

Beyond this cover with a classic looking Green Arrow, our memories are foggy but we think this issue might have included the first real mentions or backstory for Oliver Queen’s parents. In any event, we have only a week until Season 5 – check out trailers, an advance review and more on the homepage.

7 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.
