So what's the show Arrow based off of? I understand it's good old GA or a modernization of him I guess, and it's an origin story, but is it correct?

Does it follow up comically?

If so, how close and accurate is it?

If not, what is it based off of?

I enjoy the show a lot, but I always find myself asking this.

Care to enlighten me?

According to the behind-the-scenes features on the first season DVD, it's based primarily on Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters by Mike Grell and Green Arrow: Year One by Andy Diggle and Jock.

And yes, John Diggle is named after Andy.

@xwraith: I never got around to year one, but I can definitely see it being based off that. TLH also makes sense. I was gonna ask who diggle is based of haha. Thank you!
