PLUS: All of GA’s decade-tribute covers in one place…
DC’s next 80th anniversary 100-pager is due June 29 and it spotlights everyone’s favorite Emerald Archer, Green Arrow.
Naturally, the anthology issue features a run of decade-tribute covers — including this Neal Adams piece reuniting Green Arrow and Green Lantern, with a cameo appearance by the Arrowcar, GA’s cult-fave Batmobile knockoff.
Nice to see these buddies back together again, even if only for a variant cover.
Oddly, though, the cover is dedicated to GA in the ’60s — which was before our Hard Travelin’ Heroes hit the road in the ’70s. Then again, Adams’ redesigned Green Arrow did debut in 1969 on a Brave and the Bold cover that featured a logo similar to the one above:
So even if the decade tributes are often imprecise, the fun ones really capture the spirit of an era.
The $9.99 issue is due June 29 and here are the rest of the covers. (I’m particularly taken with Michael Cho’s ’40 job that reminds us that Speedy is also celebrating his 80th.)
