DC Comics' Green Arrow ongoing will be ending with March 2019's #50, according to the issue's listing in the publisher's supplement to next Wednesday's Diamond Comic Distributor's Previews catalog. The "Final Issue" notice, seen at right at the bottom of the text, did not appear in DC's March 2019 solicitation text sent out to press.

"Spinning out of the events of Justice League: No Justice and Heroes In Crisis! When a black ops organization discovers Green Arrow’s long-held secret - a mysterious weapon in the form of a box, given to him by the Justice League - they’ll deploy their top undercover agent: Black Canary!" reads DC's solicitation text for the issue. "On opposite sides of this festering secret, Green Arrow and Black Canary will clash as only two lovers can - by aiming straight for the heart! A mystery six months in the making, the box that can destroy the Justice League will be opened…and the Emerald Archer’s world will be forever changed. This extra-sized anniversary issue of Green Arrow’s life isn’t just ending…it’s burning to the ground!"

Series co-writer Jackson Lanzing tweeted about the series' end, saying "The word is out: Green Arrow #50 will be the last of the series. While [Collin Kelly, Javier Fernandez and] I would've loved nothing more than to craft a robust, long run for Ollie & Dinah, the universe had other plans."

"Very cool, very wild plans," Lanzing continued. "I look forward to reading them as a fan."

Lanzing and Kelly have been writing Green Arrow since April's #38.
