Silent Auction Saturday Morning – Oct. 4

grell_arrow_4_webWelcome to another installment of Silent Auction Saturday Morning. This is your chance to get the scoop on some of the items we’ll be featuring in our silent auction. Feel free to browse (drool at your own risk) while the spouse and kids are still in bed.

Our featured item this week is a personal favorite. Green Arrow (as he is portrayed on the hit TV show) by comic book legend Mike Grell. Mike first drew the Emerald Archer as a back-up feature in the mid-1970s, then later as part of an ongoing Green Lantern/Green Arrow series. In the mid-1980s, he re-invented the character with The Longbow Hunters, leading to the character’s first solo series.

We’ve been fans of Mike’s since he entered the comic book field back in the early 1970s. He is best known for such titles as Superboy & the Legion of Super-Heroes, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and for creating the Warlord for DC Comics. He was at the forefront of the independent movement in the 1980s, launching such titles as Starslayer, Jon Sable: Freelance, and Shaman’s Tears.

Look for the season premier of Arrow on the CW this Wednesday, Oct. 8.
