As we were pulling material together for the New 52 launch, in this case GREEN ARROW, we sometimes had to generate artwork before everything was fully defined.
In this case, it was a cover for GA #1. However, we hadn’t yet decided on a final bow design, we were still playing around a bit with the costume, and even more importantly, were still undecided about whether or not Ollie would be sporting the familiar facial hair. Norm Rapmund stepped in to provide the inks as George Perez had yet to come aboard. Enjoy this look at unused art from what was still a work-in-progress!
