Titan Magazines Launches Arrow Comic Based on Hit TV Show

Titan Magazines will launch a comic book based on the television show based on a comic book!



Source: Press Release

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a snake or dragon eating its own tail that first appeared in the 14th century BC in the Egyptian Enigmatic Book of the Netherworld. Later, Ancient Greek philospoher Plato described the meaning behind the symbol thusly:

The living being had no need of eyes because there was nothing outside of him to be seen; nor of ears because there was nothing to be heard; and there was no surrounding atmosphere to be breathed; nor would there have been any use of organs by the help of which he might receive his food or get rid of what he had already digested, since there was nothing which went from him or came into him: for there was nothing beside him. Of design he created thus; his own waste providing his own food, and all that he did or suffered taking place in and by himself. For the Creator conceived that a being which was self-sufficient would be far more excellent than one which lacked anything; and, as he had no need to take anything or defend himself against any one, the Creator did not think it necessary to bestow upon him hands: nor had he any need of feet, nor of the whole apparatus of walking; but the movement suited to his spherical form which was designed by him, being of all the seven that which is most appropriate to mind and intelligence; and he was made to move in the same manner and on the same spot, within his own limits revolving in a circle. All the other six motions were taken away from him, and he was made not to partake of their deviations. And as this circular movement required no feet, the universe was created without legs and without feet.

 

It's in this spirit of one's own waste becoming one's own food that Titan Magazines is releasing a new Arrow comic book based on the hit WB TV show (that also airs on Sky1 in the UK). The comic is in stores now and will remain on sale until the second issue comes out on November 13 (13 November as they say in the UK). Here's the press release:

That was what I was wondering too. I am guessing they worked out a deal with DC to get permission for this.
