Ollie Watch: 10/28

Hey guys! We have a couple GA appearances in this weeks comics.

Blackest Night #4: The dead continue to rise in the 4th of 8 issues in this mini. Green Arrow makes a very brief appearance, where he is seen fighting alongside Black Canary against a tide of undead. He appears again slightly later, when Barry Allen warns everyone to keep their emotions in check, as the undead are attracted to them. He then adds "That means you, Arrow." Poor Ollie, he'll never be able to live down his temper, will he?

Batman: The Brave and the Bold #10: Green Arrow joins The Atom in battle against a giant, mutated Batman! I love Green Arrow's appearances in this comic, and apparently so do the writers! Batman even refers to GA as his best friend at one point. Thanks for all the GA love, guys!

DC Character T-Shirt

Greetings, gentle readers! I was off fishing with a group of friends over the weekend (including Ljacone of Comic Book Bunker fame) and while shopping for odd and ends, I came across this:

As you can see, they managed to cram quite a few characters onto the front of the shirt. The fact that it contains so many of my favorites makes me wonder if the manufacturer is reading my mind :) The characters they excluded, namely Wonder Woman, confused me at first, until my roommate noticed that the images are all men! I's wager that there's a similar shirt in the Ladies section with the Ladies of DC!

Of particular interest to us here at the Arrowcave is the image on the top right, Green Arrow.
Here's a close-up of the image:

I have no idea who the artist on these might be, since I'm especially bad at this (maybe someone out there can help me out?) but the image is very dynamic and attractive. You can see Ollie drawing his bow to down a bad guy off screen!

As an added bonus, we get a double shot of GA family awesomeness. Toward the bottom of the shirt, we have Roy Harper in his Red Arrow costume! Here's a closer look:
Again, we have an archer drawing his bow to fire off screen. I was very surprised to see Roy on an item of merchandising, especially in his Red Arrow costume. Its not something you see everyday!

You can bet that I'll be wearing this shirt with pride from now on!

JLA Monopoly at Once Upon a Geek

Once again, our ood friend and fellow blogger Shag Matthews has written an article about a product featuring Green Arrow. This time, its JLA Monopoly! The set features all the first 8 JLA characters, with spaces for The Arrowplane, Weapons Expert (with Ollie firing his trick arrows) and Archer Extraordinaire. The equivalent of the Chance and Comunity Chest cards also feature Ollie heavily, and he even gets his face on the 1 dollar bill!

Be sure to head over there and check it out!
