As well as Oliver, stories will showcase Black Canary, Connor Hawke, Arsenal, Red Arrow, Speedy, Onomatopoeia, and Count Vertigo.

Created by writer Mort Weisinger and artist George Papp for “More Fun Comics” #73 (cover dated November 1941), Green Arrow has proven to be one of DC’s most enduring characters, but he hasn’t starred in a solo comic since the end of his last series in March 2019. The special will be released on June 29, and retail for $9.99.
Like DC’s previous ’80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectaculars,’ the book will be available with variant covers from different artists, emphasizing each decade of the character’s comics:
1940s Variant: Michael Cho
1950s Variant: Daniel Warren Johnson
1960s Variant: Neal Adams
1970s Variant: Derrick Chew
1980s Variant: Gary Frank
1990s Variant: Howard Porter
2000s Variant: Jen Bartel
2010s Variant: Simone Di Meo
The variants will be revealed by DC on a later date.
