Wrote a fun piece on DC Comics’ New 52 “Red Hood and the Outlaws” character, Roy Harper being a Los Angeles Kings fan based on his hat’s logo. Kenneth Rocafort, the artist who designed the logo, even weighed in with his thoughts!

“DC’s Roy Harper: Los Angeles Kings Fan?” — Click to read full article

“DC Comics’ Roy Harper confronted his past and old mentor Green Arrow in ‘Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual’ #1, and this Saturday, Darryl Sutter, the head coach of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings is facing something out of his own history as well — his former team the Chicago Blackhawks, who the Kings face in the Western Conference Finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs, a club he played left wing for from 1979-1987, then later commenced his coaching career with from 1992-1995.

On the surface, Roy Harper and the Los Angeles Kings don’t have any direct correlation, but upon closer examination something becomes obvious — the arrow slinging outlaw of the DC Universe is an LA Kings fan.

Since DC launched its New 52 continuity, Harper is often seen wearing a baseball cap with an ambiguous logo, but in certain images it strongly resembles a LA Kings logo, granted one that has been retired towards the end of this post-lockout NHL season. Check the evidence provided below!”
