You know, I still haven't read this famous story arc myself, despite having become quite a Green Arrow fan thanks to the relaunch (before Judd Winnick took over and turned it into a giant suckfest).

I've been meaning to read up on Green Lantern and Green Arrow run. I hope there are a few trades out there.

I remember reading a copy of this years ago online. It may be dated, but it's truly an amazing work.

WOW! So, this is where American comics started to "grow-up".

This story sound very cool, and I wonder if DC publishes any paperback collections that might contain this groundbreaking story.

Seems really cool and groundbreaking. I need to check it out sometime.

anyone knows where I can find this online? Or is there a TPB copy of this?

This comic made me want to be a smack addict.

There are multiple trade papers that have it, although I don't really know which ones are in print at the moment. The whole Adams/Oneil run on GA/GL has been collected probably more than any other series. If you find one, do make sure what you're looking for is in there before you buy it, as the run has also been packaged a number of different ways, but honestly I don't think you can go wrong with this stuff if you're into the history of comics.

The only thing I'd warn you about is despite the fact the dialouge was groundbreaking at the time, it's pretty badly dated.

I've recently gotten back into comics, and read this as part of my revival.

For those of you wondering, there are two TPBs collecting the adventures of Green lantern and Green Arrow, including this arc.

I gotta' say, no matter how cheesy the dialogue may be, the impact of the story is still there.

Tetsu Deinonychus Mar 27th, 2008 01:57 AM

Great! I'll have to track them down (I've been interested in the whole O'Neil/Adams run on this series since Max Burbank's 2nd "hey Dork" column).

I don't mind cheesy dialogue either. Hell, I write comics myself, and while I like to think my plot-lines are great, I think my dialog is absolutely terrible (though I am working on changing that). So, I'm sure it's at least better than mine.
