Overview

Over 40 years ago, writer Dennis O'Neil and artist Neal Adams raised the expectations for and expanded the idea of what could be accomplished with mainstream commercial comics. Now presented in a beautiful, oversize edition, with an introduction by Dennis O'Neil himself, the relevance of those stories can still be felt in Green Lantern/Green Arrow: Hard-Traveling Heroes Deluxe Edition.

What does it take to be a superhero? Where should a superhero stand in society? What is important to a superhero? These are all questions Green Arrow aims to ask Green Lantern by forcing the space cop out of the stars and onto the ground where real issues are festering. Together, these hard-traveling heroes traverse America, and a few alien landscapes, to understand how the world is not black-and-white. Poverty, corruption, pollution, racism and drug addiction are only some of the issues the emerald warriors face.

Collects Green Lantern #76-87 and #89 and the backup stories from The Flash #217-219 and #226.

About the Author

Dennis O'Neil began his career as a comic book writer in 1965 at Charlton, where then-editor Dick Giordano assigned him to several features. When Giordano moved to DC, O'Neil soon followed. At DC, O'Neil scripted several series for Giordano and Julius Schwartz, quickly becoming one of the most respected writers in comics. O'Neil earned a reputation for being able to "revamp" such characters as Superman, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel -- and Batman, whom O'Neil (with the help of Neal Adams and Giordano) brought back to his roots as a dark, mysterious, gothic avenger. Besides being the most important Batman writer of the 1970s, O'Neil served as an editor at both Marvel and DC. After a long tenure as Group Editor of the Batman line of titles, he retired to write full-time.

Born on June 15, 1941 in New York City, Neal Adams began his comics career immediately after high school and has worked in the field ever since. He joined DC Comics in 1965, where he quickly became one of their top cover artists, contributing radical and dynamic illustrations to nearly every title the company published. His first interior work was done for editor Robert Kanigher's war titles, but it was his celebrated run on a new title called DEADMAN that began to build his reputation as a revolutionary creative force. In addition to his pivotal artistic and business roles, Adams has also been an outspoken supporter of creators' rights in the comics industry and was influential in convincing comic book publishers to return original artwork to the artists who created it.
