New comics Wednesday is upon us once again, my comic collecting cohorts, and this weeks cover highlight is; Green Arrow #42, depicting everyone’s favourite emerald archer stalking the rooftops of Seattle. Oliver Queen is more popular now than he has ever been thanks to an influx of new fans through the rather splendid “Arrow” television series, and his “New 52” reboot series has also been a sterling triumph for DC Comics, containing great character development, engrossing storylines and notable artwork.
July also heralds the beginning of DC’s “Teen Titans GO” variant cover month, with a handful of their monthly titles (including GA #42) shipping with alternate covers depicting the popular cartoon network show that stars Robin, Batgirl, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy. The show itself is known for its cheerful and humorous tone and is a fun watch for comic fans of all ages.
Green Arrow #42 is available at your local comic-book emporium right now. Written by: Benjamin Percy. Cover and Interior art by: Patrick Zircher. Variant Cover by: Craig Rousseau.
