A Story from Mike Grell about Green Arrow, The Longbow Hunters, and Frank Miller

Meeting Mike Grell

I met Mike Grell at the Santa Rosa ToyCon in September.
It was an unplanned trip and an unexpected meeting. When I turned a corner and saw him drawing an original Warlord commission I was starstruck.
But the moment I stopped at his table to introduce myself Mike greeted me with a smile and a handshake. He’s known for reimagining The Green Arrow’s origin in a profound and humble series called The Longbow Hunters.

I first discovered him through a comic series called Shaman’s Tears.

The impact of his work can be seen in the storylines for Green Arrow that followed Mike’s miniseries. The most recent incarnation is in the CW television show The Arrow, which its creators have said many times is grounded in the foundation of Mr. Grell’s seminal masterpiece.

Knowing all of this, I was stunned when he told me to ask him anything.
What followed is a story about Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters and Frank Miller that I will never forget.
