Title: Green Arrow
Post by: Perry on March 30, 2015, 07:20:58 PM
So I started reading Kevin Smith's 2001 Green Arrow again (along with DC Legacies, Dark Horse's Star Wars Tales, Batman Eternal, my monthly books, Earth 2, Futures End, Earths End, Waid's Flash and some of PAD's Hulk run (331-376) ... I think that puts me at 493 titles I am now reading  :D) and I just noticed something I had never noticed. Artist Phil Hester made a obvious boo-boo on issue #2.

Our recently returned from the dead Green Arrow, breaks into a Senators house and saves a 15 year old prostitute (Kevin Smith, remember?  :D) from said Senator. While tending to the young lady, the Senator makes a break for out running out of his bedroom and into the living room. Well our beloved Ollie being the great bowman he is, listened through the bedroom wall and then shot a bolo-arrow through that wall, into the living room successfully entangling the perverted elected official.

But the way it is drawn does not match up correctly. As you can see in the second panel, Ollie shoots this arrow through the bedroom wall about a foot to the right of an outlet and about 2 feet or so from a door that was the entrance to the bedroom. However, as you can see in panel three, the arrow comes through the wall that has a window close to where the arrow came from ...

Hey Hester, I know it is too late now, but ya missed on this one, buddy.

Wasn't that hard of a shot if there was a window in that wall, I guess!!  :D

 :D Right?

I am going to say it is really a picture on the wall instead of a covered window ... one that looks just like all the other covered windows. Maybe the Senator commissioned a painter to create a painting that looks like the other windows?

A No-Prize! Those are the Senator's Honorary degrees from colleges within the state, and Hester simply kept his minimal state going by merely showing them as pieces of paper instead. ;)
