DC icons Green Arrow and Aquaman are collaborating in a new series named Deep Target featuring in October.
Hello, it doesn’t have a similar ring as Green Lantern/Green Arrow, yet basically the two of them wear green.
The new seven-issue series was affirmed by DC however first declared by means of Twitter by author Brandon Thomas, who will likewise write the upcoming Aquaman solo limited series Aquaman: Becoming.
“Arthur Curry & Oliver Queen team up (and throw down) in Deep Target, a mind-bending, worlds altering adventure that launches in October!” reads Thomas’ tweet.
The series will be delineated by Ronan Cliquet and Ulises Arreola with covers by Marco Santucci and InHyuk Lee.
The two characters are without solo series right now, albeit the pair are as of now spending time as partners in Brian Bendis’ Justice League series.
The original Aquaman Arthur Curry will show up in Deep Target, yet seems to be surrendering the title of Aquaman to the current Aqualad Jackson Hyde in Thomas’ Aquaman: Becoming limited series, while Green Arrow figures conspicuously in Bendis’ Checkmate limited series.
Albeit not traditionally characters with ‘deep’ ties (sorry), they really share one of the deepest ties of all – the two of them appeared in November 1941’s More Fun Comics #73 with a common co-creator, Green Arrow by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, and Aquaman by Weisinger and Paul Norris.
Obviously, that implies they’re both celebrating their 80th anniversaries in 2021 with June 29’s Green Arrow 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 and August 31’s Aquaman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1, respectively.
Curiously, however Aquaman and Green Arrow appeared together and have been long-term partners in the Justice League, the two heroes have infrequently adventured all together, and definitely haven’t shared a single featuring title previously.
Green Arrow and Aquaman have likewise evolved as two of the tentpole stars of DC’s TV shows and films – however absolutely separately, existing in various universes. Green Arrow was, obviously, the longtime star of Arrow, which launched the CW’s DC TV universe and ran for eight seasons, and got many other DC heroes – however never Aquaman.
In the mean time, Aquaman has his own blockbuster film (with a spin-off in progress), with star Jason Momoa purportedly set to be one of the few actors from the Justice League film who will proceed in their role in the future on DC film universe.
The pair will at last meet up as co-headliners on the page when Aquaman/Green Arrow: Deep Target debuts in October.
