Move over, Final Crisis! Get out of the way, Crisis on Infinite Earths! DC Comics is tackling the biggest Crisis event of our time in November: the Opioid Crisis!
That’s right, DC will reprint a facsimile edition of Green Lantern/Green Arrow #85, famous for revealing that Green Arrow’s ward and sidekick Speedy had become a heroin junkie! Oh no! This 1971 comic claimed to attack “youth’s greatest problem,” but as we know the opioid crisis has only gotten worse since then, so it’s a good thing DC is bringing it back. Unfortunately, this issue was only the first part of the two-part story, which means Speedy’s addiction will go unresolved… which, now that we think about it, is the perfect metaphor for the opioid crisis facing America today.
