Season 5 Cover Countdown: Wild Dog #3 Season 5 Cover Countdown: Wild Dog #3
With 3 days left to Arrow Season 5, we look at a comic cover featuring a character who'll be showing up on Arrow Season... Season 5 Cover Countdown: Wild Dog #3

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 only 3 days left until Arrow Season 5, considering The CW has announced an October 5 premiere date. We’re almost there!

Here’s today’s entry.


Wild Dog #3

Today’s classic comic book cover features a character who hasn’t had many appearances in his nearly 30 years, but he’s still a fan favorite to those who have gotten to know him — his name is Wild Dog! And what do you know, Wild Dog plays an important role in the upcoming fifth season of Arrow, where he is played by Rick Gonzalez. Look for him to make his debut in the season premiere!

3 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.
