This month, the Emerald Archer entered a new era with GREEN ARROW #17, which marked the debut of the acclaimed new creative team of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino. If you’ve read it, you know it brought both a change in tone to the series as well as the start of a gritty, street-level Green Arrow story that promises to reveal much about Oliver Queen’s past.


In honor of Green Arrow Week, Jeff Lemire has given us five signed copies of Green Arrow #17 to give away. Even better, each of them has a unique Oliver Queen sketch cover drawn by Jeff.



So how can you get your hands on one of these? Well, fortunately you won’t have to spend five years on a deserted island. All you’ll have to do is take a picture.

The comics we’re giving away have original sketch covers, but the regular cover of Green Arrow #17 is pretty darn cool as well. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it.



To win a signed and sketched Green Arrow comic, all you need to do is...


1) Follow @DCComics on Twitter.

2) Tweet us a picture of you recreating the pose shown in the above cover between 10 a.m. PST on Thursday, February 28th and 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday, March 3rd. Be sure to use the hashtag #ArrowGiveaway in your tweet to have your entry counted.


Costumes and props in the photos are more than welcome, but not required. After the deadline, we’ll pick the five best photos and winners will be contacted on Twitter prior to being sent their comics (so check those direct messages!). We’ll post the winning photos here in THE SOURCE next week.


Good luck and hold those bowstrings taut!
