But, there has also been a few variants on that classic cover!
Here's a little of the story behind those, and they are here...in there full glory!
The New Guys
The journey wasn’t quite as long, but it did go back and forth from Green Lantern title to Green Arrow title (not an option back in the day, as Green Arrow didn’t have his own title back then, which is why he was in Green Lantern's title!).
The story ran from Green Lantern #76-77 and Green Arrow #110-111 as the Hard Traveling Heroes: The Next Generation!
An Alternate Cover
Green Lantern and Green Arrow had a rainbow shift, and were turned red instead. One has to wonder a few things about this doppler shift…like, what color is Hal‘s Red Lantern ring now vulnerable to?
Would Speedy grow up to become “Green Arrow” instead of “Red Arrow“?
What color would Black Canary have been?
Back in Black
Green Arrow was forced to confront some of the things he had done wrong, with the help of his old buddy, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and pretty bird Black Canary.
A slightly darker look at how Green Arrow had fallen hard (and a slight reversal, as it was Green Lantern back in the day who had been the hero who had the ego in need of adjustment, and the hotheaded Green Arrow instead became the man in need of change)!
Read the issues yourself (as they have been collected many times, the entire run in Green Lantern/Green Arrow #1-7, Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection Vol. 1-2 TPB, the Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection HC and the original Green Lantern #76 was reprinted in Greatest Team-Up Stories Ever Told HC, DC Silver Age Classics Green Lantern 76 (#6), and Millennium Edition: Green Lantern 76 (#5)) and then, find out the history of these stories with Back Issue!
