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 104 days left until Arrow Season 5, considering The CW just announced an October 5 premiere date.
Here’s today’s entry.
Green Lantern/Green Arrow #104
Dinah Lance, the Black Canary, joins Green Lantern and Green Arrow on this classic comic book cover from 1978, where Hal and Ollie mourn… we’re not quite sure who they mourn, without the issue at hand! This is another issue from the second wave of the Green Lantern/Green Arrow series which relaunched with issue #90 in 1976. Cool Mike Grell artwork, though.
104 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.
