GREEN ARROW IS DEAD FOR NOW
Posted: 040319

Final Story Arc Intended to Jump Off to a Relaunch-Then DC changed Their Mind

Green Arrow #50 was the series' finale but writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly had thought the issue was going to be the beginning of a long run on the series with 50 more issues planned out. Lanzing explained on Twitter that the title was canceled as the two of then were writing the first issue: "As our short run on Green Arrow heads to its conclusion - and the last issue of the series - with issue #50, I want to tell you a story. Iím going try to be blunt about process on a superhero book. Letís get our thread on and talk about writing in a shared universe." He revealed that he and Kelly were hired by DC with the idea of the duo having a long run on the series: "The powers that be supported us, editorial helped us shape it. We were building an engine of new, weird ideas shaded by our social and political reality. But before we got into any of our particular madness, it was important that we acknowledge the stories that brought us to our first issue. After all, we werenít starting at #1 - we were starting at issue #48. The stories that came before mattered - to fans and to us." #48 and #49 were meant to wrap up all threads left by former creators and even story elements from Heroes in Crisis and Justice League: No Justice. But as the duo was writing #48 DC canceled the book and told the writers to rework their story. DC has not announced any plans for a relaunched Green Arrow title.
