So, here's a look back at the comic book history (in tandem with the TV show), focusing on Green Arrow #5 issues!
Green Arrow #5 1988
This series lasted from February, 1988 to November, 1998, and for a time was suggested for mature readers, due to its graphic, realistic storytelling techniques; introducing Shado; and much later in this series, they established the split story technique, with Oliver teaching Connor Hawke archery at a monastery in issues written by Chuck Dixon.
Green Arrow Annual #5
Green Arrow had seven Annuals from 1988 to 1995, with the last focusing on Ollie's origin on the island, in a story by Chuck Dixon, Rick Burchett, Chris Renaud, Eduardo Barreto and Gerry Fernandez.
Green Arrow #5 2001
This series lasted from April, 2001 to August, 2007, and carried on the idea of Green Arrow fighting Deathstroke the Terminator (Slade Wilson), that had started in a couple of issues of Ollie's over 130 issue run.
Green Arrow/Black Canary #5
This series lasted for 29 issues from December, 2007 to April, 2010 (with a few solo Green Arrow issues after the pair split and some machinations of Prometheus). This series also had Green Arrow and Black Canary face Ra's Al Ghul, and introduced the female archer villain, Cupid, who even attacked archer Merlyn (in issues written by Andrew Kreisberg, who Arrow fans should recognize from the CW show's credits).
Green Arrow #5 2010
This series lasted for 15 issues from August, 2010 to October, 2011, at which point, the entire DC Universe was hit by Flashpoint, changing the characters histories....
Green Arrow #5 New 52
This series lasted 54 issues from November, 2011 to July, 2016, with the introduction of the archer Komodo, as well as a reintroduction of Count Vertigo, as well as eventually having Felicity Smoak and John Diggle be his support team. This series also sent Ollie back to the island to rediscover himself (though that needed work even beyond what Ollie found....).
