It's Oliver Queen's time to shine at Comic-Con. The emerald archer is targeting the San Diego convention this week with a pilot screening Wednesday evening (July 11) and much more — including recently unveiled plans to release an "Arrow" tie-in comic book.
"It's almost like a little mini episode after the pilot but before the next episode," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told TV Guide about the just announced "Arrow" comic, a collaboration between Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Geoff Johns, as well as artists Mike Grell, Randy Mayor and Omar Francia.
"To us those 10 pages are canon," said Kreisberg, "and [for] anyone who grabs a copy: Hold onto it and as the series progresses, you'll appreciate it more and more."
As for what readers will learn about Oliver Queen, Kreisberg said: "People tend to think of Green Arrow as a little more lighthearted and sort of a ladies man ... and the Oliver Queen that we're doing a show about is a little bit more tortured, a little darker and lives more in the real world."
