Arrow????? OH! You Mean GREEN Arrow!

DC Comics and The CW Television Network is doing a BIG crossover with 2 of their shows this week.  It's making big big overnight stars with a couple of characters who've been around for a long, long time.

The Arrow has been on for a couple of years now.  It has a little too much "Dawsons Melrose 90210" in it for my taste, but they're really done a nice job in bringing some comic book characters to life.  Green Arrow, Deathstroke, Merlin and a cast of other with others still on the way,  

I have much more faith in the abilities of DC in creating a shared universe for their characters here in TV than I have in what they're hinting at with their announce big screen line up.

It's actually just pure D dumb fun!  And there's nothing wrong with that.

For all of us kiddies too young to have been around from the beginnings of the character of The Green Arrow, here's a glance back at the 73rd issue of More Fun Comics in 1941 and GA's very first appearance.  Mort Weisinger and artist George Papp wanted to create a swashbuckling Robin Hood for modern times.

He's still around 73 years later, so they must've done a good job.

More on this TV event tomorrow here, just in time for part one tomorrow night,

Talk to you soon.
