DC Comics declares Oct. 10 ‘Arrow Day’

DC Comics has declared Wednesday, Oct. 10 as “Arrow Day” to celebrate the premiere of the Arrow television series on The CW.

What’s Arrow Day, you ask? Well, when fans visit direct-market stores on Oct. 10, they’ll receive a free Arrow #1 Special Edition custom comic — it’s characterized as “the perfect companion for the show’s premiere that night” — as well as a six-page preview of Green Arrow #0, which was released earlier this month. The publisher is also providing retailers with promotional posters and bags for the TV series.

Readers will also be able to download the first chapter of the new Arrow digital comic series written by the show’s executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, with art by Mike Grell.

Developed by Guggenheim, Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, Arrow centers on wealthy young bad boy Oliver Queen, who after being marooned on a remote island for five years returns to Starling City with a mastery of the bow and a determination to make a difference.

The series stars Stephen Amell (Hung) as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn, Katie Cassidy (Supernatural, Melrose Place) as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey (Dexter) as John Diggle, Willa Holland (The O.C.) as Thea Queen, Susanna Thompson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne (24) as Detective Quentin Lance.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.



You could call it free money and blow jobs for Richard day, and i still wouldn’t give a shit about this show. Nice one DC, take a character i fucking love, then wreck the character in comics as well as a TV show.

The powers that be at what currently passes for DC are seem to be so ashamed anyone in their IP catalog that isn’t Batman that if they ever made a live action tv show for Green Lantern they’d call it Ring and it would be 10 seasons before he ever put it on his finger. In the meantime though they’d dress him in a green T-shirt from American Apparel so fans could still delude themselves into thinking the series gave a damn about the source material.

my only reaction to the previews I’ve seen for this:

We are not the demographic they’re looking for.
