Green Lantern/Green Arrow

So I bought the hardcover version of the Dennis O'Neil/Neal Adams run of Green Lantern/Green Arrow a few weeks ago. It's really good (no surprise).

But I just ran across this - the restarting of the title a few years later by O'Neil and Mike Grell! This book features the first 17 issues (90-106) from when the series relaunched in 1976. I can't wait to get it! Of course, I'll have to wait, as it doesn't come out until next January...




I'm betting it's worth the wait.

I've thought about getting the Absolute version.

I was disappointed in the Absolute version.

The Deluxe HC wasn't available when I got the it, but that looks to contain everything in the Absolute in a slightly smaller size at half the price.
If you just want to read a collection of the material in form slightly more permanent than a softcover, that would be the way to go IMO.

The only extras the Absolute has are the six covers from the '83 Baxter reprint series. Nice covers, but the Absolute also uses a matte stock that doesn't do much any of the art inside.

Wow I remember reading that series when it first came out. I have it digitally, so I should really revisit it and soon.

I have a near-complete run of that series somewhere in storage. Green Arrow was always my 3rd favorite DC hero (after Superman and Robin/Nightwing) so I tried to collect every Bronze Age and beyond appearance. Great stuff.

Back in the late '70s/early '80s, those Adams original GL/GA issues were wildly expensive. I never could afford them. I first got them in a paperback book collection, as I recall.
