Amazon.com: Books: Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection - Volume 1

Amazon.com: Books: Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection - Volume 1

I just finished reading this collection of comics that was originally published in 1971. When I first started collecting comics, GL/GA was an early favorite. Re-reading these today, they come across as dated and hokey, but, the innocence, integrity of the writing and artwork keeps it compelling. The writer, Denny O'Neil also made a real attempt at exploring social issues, which for a comic book at this time was revolutionary. Plus, it stars Black Canary, if you know of a better looking heroine let me know! I read the entire series (that would be vols I&II) in about 5 sittings. Good fun!
