The MANY trick arrows of Oliver Queen.

OK, so between classes I've been reading through Showcase Presents: The Green Arrow Volume 1. First off, this tpb is HILARIOUS! I love the old, super dramatic, 1950's way of comic book storytelling, and that is in full effect here. Thus far, I've read about 18 different GA stories. I just wanted to list the MANY trick arrows Ollie(or other archers)has used so far in this tpb. Luminescent Arrow- Illuminates a target

Vine Arrow- Releases a vine to wrap up a target

"Big Ben" Arrow- A time bomb arrow

Lava Arrow- Duh, it spews lava

Spotter Arrow- Places a falcon's hood over someone

Boxing Glove Arrow- THE famous arrow with a boxing glove attached

Flashlight Arrow- Shines some light on a situation

Rope Arrow- Helps GA and Speedy reach lofty heights, or wraps up their enemies

Bazooka Arrow- Arrows that explode like bazooka shells

Oven Arrow- Causes an object to become red hot

Ink Arrows- Arrows that explode with ink

Ring Arrow- Wraps a ring around GA's foes

Tumbleweed Arrows- Fires tumbleweeds that stir up dirt and sand. NOW, I've seen it all...

Hoop Arrow- Form a hoop to wrap up someone

Sun Arrow- Causes a ball of blinding light

Gun Arrows- Arrows that fire bullets

Ice Cutting Arrow- An arrow that, you guessed it, cuts through ice
