DC Comics Celebrates Arrow Day

DC Comics Celebrates Arrow Day

By Kevin Mahadeo Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Today marks a really awesome day for comic book fans. Yes, it's Wednesday, and therefore new comic book day, but along with that, DC Comics is also celebrating Arrow Day! Why today? Well, we're glad you theoretically asked! It's because there's some awesome Green Arrow greatness going on all day long!

 

Check out all the stuff happening:

 

Tonight marks the premiere of the highly anticipated CW television series Arrow, which stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen and Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance. Be sure to give the episode a watch and return here tomorrow for 5.2 Reasons, where we'll be breaking down the episode and fans can share their thoughts in the comments!

 

However, before tonight's premiere, we recommend heading over to your local comic shop where you can get a FREE copy of ARROW #1 SPECIAL EDITION, featuring an original 10-page story tying into the television series and a preview of GREEN ARROW #0! And for those who can't make it out to the store, worry not! Head over to the DC Digital Store where you can get the 10-page Arrow story also for FREE!

 

Speaking of the DC Digital Store, today also marks the release of the very first issue of our weekly digital first Arrow comic. Written by series writers and executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, our new Arrow comic tells crucial in-continuity stories designed to fill in important details about the series’ characters and give fans an even deeper glimpse into the world of Oliver Queen. And with a first chapter drawn by legendary Green Arrow artist Mike Grell, it may be fair to call this comic a can’t-miss.

 

Finally, today’s also the last full day of our Green Arrow 101 Sale, which has over 100 Green Arrow comic book issues featuring the eagle-eyed archer—all for only 99 cents each! The sale ends tomorrow, so act while you can.

 

With all the options available to you today, Oliver Queen fans don’t need to be world-class archers to hit the bullseye. Don’t miss out!
