Titan Magazines has launched an all-new Arrow Comic, based on the hit TV series that exploded on Sky1 last year.
Coinciding with the second series launch in the UK, Arrow Comic hit stores last week, offering original stories written by the show’s creators, crammed with all new artwork from legendary Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters artist Mike Grell.
Featuring four comic stories every issue – including unseen aspects of Ollie’s origin by the show’s creators in issue #1 – Arrow Comic picks up where the TV show leaves off, telling brand new tales of Ollie, Laurel, Diggle and their allies and enemies for the ultimate Arrow experience.
“If you’re a fan of the Arrow TV show, you owe it to yourself to pick up Arrow Comic! – said Jon Chapple, Arrow Comic Editor.
Titan has marketed the title with online and print ads, PR and social media in addition to online and on-air support from Sky1.
