As the holidays arrive and the year comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look back at 2013 and commemorate some of the moments that really stood out in the world of DC Entertainment in a two-week DCComics.com series we’re calling “Ten Moments that Mattered.” Some of these moments were happy. Some were sad. They played out in the pages of our comics, on the big and small screen and in the halls of our office. However, all of them made a profound difference in the world of DC Comics and in the hearts and minds of our fans.
Hey Arrow fans and DC collectors! As you know, tonight is the season premiere of Arrow, so we thought it would be fun to join in the excitement with a special Arrow-themed look behind the scenes at one of most highly anticipated new collectibles.
Arrow: The Complete First Season hit stores this past Tuesday, and with Season 2 premiering in just a few weeks (October 9!) we figured it was the perfect time to start leisurely re-watching the entire first season in preparation. Paced out, we'd be able to watch an episode a day, starting with the day of release and ending on the exact day of the premiere. It was the perfect plan.
It’s official, the countdown for the ARROW season finale has begun with only two episodes left! To commemorate this amazing season don’t forget to check out DC Collectibles, ARROW OLIVER QUEEN STATUE, available for purchase in specialty stores now and online here! The ARROW OLIVER QUEEN STATUE, based on the likeness of actor Stephen Amell, is highly detailed, measures approximately 13.25 high x 5 wide x 5 inches deep, and is hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain.
Millions of Oliver Queen fans tune in to watch the Hood come to life each Wednesday on the small screen, but if you’re only watching the show, you’re only getting half the story. Every Wednesday also marks the release of a brand new chapter of the digital first comic book.
Yeah, we know what many of you are thinking. The comic’s just another television adaptation full of inconsequential stories that don’t have any real impact on the series.
He’s graced the pages of comic books written and drawn by the likes of Denny O’Neil, Kevin Smith, Mike Grell, Neal Adams, Andy Diggle and Jeff Lemire. He’s been featured on the small screen in two popular live action television shows and made memorable appearances on several beloved animated series. His likeness has been preserved in action figures, clothing and collectibles. He’s made playable appearances in videogames, including the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us.
If you love the color green and you love people that shoot other people with arrows—and the idea of those two things together gets you more excited than Wonder Woman at a sword sale—then slip on an extra pair of your excitement pants because right now, it’s all about Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow.
