* {{Omnibus}}: Green Arrow's Golden Age stories never appeared while DC was producing their Archives line, but DC has recently made up for that with a Golden Age omnibus, the equivalent of about three and a half Archives.

Green Arrow's most prominent live-action media appearance is in TheCW series ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', where Oliver is played by Creator/StephenAmell. It debuted in November 2012 and drew a huge viewing audience. The success of ''Arrow'' led to a series of spin-offs and what has become known as the Series/{{Arrowverse}}.

After Lemire and Sorrentino left, the book was briefly taken over by Andrew Kreisberg and Ben Sokolowski, who are - in addition to being comic book writers - writers for Green Arrow's TV show adaptation ''Series/{{Arrow}}''. Their six-issue run was not well-received - partly due to the trouble anyone would have had following Lemire and Sorrentino and partly because of their efforts to make the book more accessible to fans of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' while simultaneously restoring more elements of the pre-''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' ''Green Arrow'' comics. Even the most generous critics agreed they tried to accomplish too much, too quickly, simultaneously tryng to [[PutOnABus throwing out]] all of Oliver's support team except for John Diggle, bringing Arrow's BreakoutCharacter Felicity Smoak into the comics, reestablish Oliver's friendship with Hal Jordan, reintroducing homeless teen Mia Dearden as a potential sidekick and setting up a new arch-enemy for Green Arrow in the form of CorruptCorporateExecutive John King.

* MasochistsMeal: A very funny page from a ''ComicBook/GreenArrow Secret Files'' issue shows Ollie's famous chili recipe (which is not only an actual recipe, but apparently a very good one, if not really as hot as depicted). The JLA all have horrified reactions to it (including J'onn comparing it to fire and freaking out)... except Franchise/{{Batman}}, who just thinks it needs more crackers: [[http://idol-head.blogspot.com/2007/09/ollie-queens-stupendous-chili-recipe.html Link]]

* FreudianExcuse: In one retcon, Oliver was shown to have suffered ParentalNeglect as a child. As an adult he became a stereotypical bored rich man who spent most of his time avoiding responsibility. After losing all his money he lost the one thing that made him happy, and tried to compensate for it by gaining the love of the masses as a hero for the poor and downtrodden of society. When in reality, he just wants to be loved, but even when he has friends and a family, and he doesn't know how to genuinely hold on to them and gradually drives them away with his jerkass attitude. He doesn't care about social ills, he wants to play the hero so people will love him. He wants love, but he's not very good at returning it in healthy ways.

For the rest of The {{New 52}} era, the book would be written by urban fantasy author Benjamin Percy. Percy would remain on the series as it became ComicBook/GreenArrowRebirth. The new series has proved popular, restoring many elements of the classic series - primarily the romance between Green Arrow and ComicBook/BlackCanary, Oliver's status as a social-justice warrior and [[BadassBeard his trademark goatee]]. The new series has also discarded [[PutOnABus most of the supporting cast]] introduced during The {{New52}} run, save for the characters created by Jeff Lemire like Emiko Queen and hacker Henry Fyff. The new series is focused on Oliver and Dinah's efforts to fight The Ninth Circle - an [[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheSyndicate uber-capitalist cabal]] tied to an AncientConspiracy, with designs on taking over America through [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil human trafficking]] and CorporateWarfare.
