The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Hard-Traveling Heroes, the run of the Green Lantern/Green Arrow book from the early 1970s. This was the reboot of Green Arrow, making him an ex-millionaire and a champion of the downtrodden. We talk about the history of the title, the characters and their backstories, some of the hot-button issues this series brings, the impact of the series on other books (including trade paperbacks), and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
Come hang out with us! We usually have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website We're super excited to announce our partnership with ComicBooks For Kids. Details on the website (and you should be listening to hear more, too 🙂)
What we're up to this week:
Got new comics including Death Metal, a bit of a rant about DC's marketing strategy, The Ludocrats, Batman: The Adventure Continues, Adventureman, "research" for future episodes (hee hee), United We Fan documentary, What We Left Behind documentary, All Things Must Pass (the story of Tower Records)
We added our picks to the website as their own page! It's an easy reference for you to find some cool stuff to read (especially in social distancing mode). So go check it out, and hit the site as you need or want 🙂
Hey, let's do a Q&A episode! Shoot us your questions and we'll answer them on an episode in the near future 🙂
We're getting set up on Discord - details coming soon...
We say "forty years ago" a few times regarding these books - clearly math is hard, because they're obviously fifty years old. Sorry about that 😉
And we're kind of all over the place with the date of publication for this book. Which we kind of did to ourselves by reading a reprint. Again, sorry.

Folklords volume 1 trade (BOOM! Studios)
Sacred Six #1 (Dynamite)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Willow #1 (BOOM! Studios)
Adventureman #2 (Image)
Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass graphic novel (DC Ink)
