Episode 0 - The Comics


MP3 File

Hey guys, in lieu of an episode, we get a special Thanksgiving episode of Rogue Arrow where I talk about the history of the comics and Green Arrow in particular.

The beginning of DC's Golden Age of Comics.


Green Arrow and Speedy's first appearances in More Fun Comics 73 in 1941. Notice the very Robin Hood feel to their costumes!


An interesting easter egg is that in Episode 5, Damaged we see this:


Check out the numbers and the date above. Pretty neat, eh? 
Thanks to Mr. Morbid's House of Fun! for sharing that.

Anyways, here's a cover for one of Green Arrow's first Silver Age appearances:




He then is collected in Green Lantern/Green Arrow
Then came Crisis on Infinite Earths! Which, along with Longbow Hunters, recreated the image and story of the Green Arrow.

Then Green Arrow died.

And was brought back by Kevin Smith in Quiver!


If you want to check out more Green Arrow stories go over to TradeReadingOrder.com.
Again, the top story recommendations I have are:
Green Arrow: Year One
Green Arrow: Longbow Hunters
Green Arrow: Quiver
Green Arrow: Archer's Quest
Justice League: Cry For Justice
Justice League: Rise and Fall
Green Arrow Brightest Day: Into The Woods
New 52 Green Arrow: The Midas Touch

Over the mid season break I will probably do a further in depth review of these and other books for you guys. As always thank you for listening.
