To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Green Arrow's debut, DC Comics has unveiled a new piece of promotional art featuring characters from Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra’s run on the series -- including Oliver Queen in all of his goateed glory.
This year also marks the 75th anniversaries of DC icons Aquaman and Wonder Woman, who were introduced in 1941's "More Fun Comics" #73 and "All Star Comics" #8, respectively.
Created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, Green Arrow debuted in “More Fun Comics" #73 as a Batman-esque wealthy vigilante sworn to protect his city. Later, the modern-day Robin Hood became the icon of progressivism and, most recently, a voice for social justice.
In their Rebirth run on "Green Arrow," Percy and Ferreyra toy with the question of who can make more of an impact, Green Arrow the vigilante or Oliver Queen the billionaire, as they push the character further down the Robin Hood path.
You can celebrate the character's milestone anniversary with the collected edition “Green Arrow: A Celebration of 75 Years,” which features work by such creators Jack Kirby, Mike Grell, Neal Adams, Alan Moore, Dennis O’Neil, Kevin Smith, Phil Hester, Amanda Conner, Mort Weisinger and George Papp.
"Green Arrow" #7 by, Percy and Ferreyra, is on sale now.
