Comic Cover Of The Week: Green Arrow #44
Delivered to you like a boxing glove arrow to the face is this weeks instalment of ‘Comic Cover Of The Week’, and our spotlight of excellence this week falls upon this stunning Patrick Zircher Green Arrow cover. Stunningly understated, the cover depicts a mean and moody Ollie Queen alongside his newest crime-fighting companion, with the issue exploring the mythology and origin of the emerald archer’s newfound four legged friend. As has become the norm for DC Comics in recent times, this weeks Green Arrow also ships with a variant cover, by none other than the comic book legend that is Neal Adams.
This cover harkens back to the halcyon days of the frequent team up between Green Arrow and Green Lantern, lovingly illustrated by Neal Adams who regularly drew their adventures throughout the 70’s and 80’s. The cover also ties in with the 75th anniversary celebration of Green Lantern, that’s right friends, seventy five years of Blackest Nights and Brightest Days.
