Showcase Presents: The Green Arrow: Volume 1
Oliver Queen mastered the bow and arrow as a matter of survival. Trapped on a desert island, the millionaire crafted his own weapons to forage for food until he was rescued. Back in his home of Star City, he chose to use his newfound skills as the costumed champion Green Arrow. Green Arrow and Speedy are DC Comics' swashbuckling team supreme. This collection of their offbeat adventures from the 1950s and 1960s shows why they were so popular that they were featured in two top titles. It's the Emerald Duo tackling bandits, chasing crooks and solving conundrums with energy, style, and the occasional boxing glove arrow! Thrill as a young Oliver Queen meets Superboy, years before the archer's elected to stand beside the Man of Steel in the Justice League of America. Witness classic team-ups with J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter and the Dark Knight himself, Batman. These stories feature a who's who of the day, and include tales from writers Ed Herron, Jack Schiff, Bob Haney, and Gardner Fox along with art by Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, Lee Elias and Mike Sekowsky.
