DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #9 [1981]


Another “Secret Origins” issue, this one including the Kirby version of Green Arrow’s origin from ADVENTURE COMICS #256 (1959), which I looked at in more detail here. Again, with digests, the reprint was modified slightly for the digest format. The captions and balloons didn’t overlap with the adjoining panels like that in the proper version.


I like Kirby’s detail with the “drill arrow” (obviously the easiest way to get down coconuts), one of the few times you get the idea that that much thought went into one of GA’s gimmick arrows.
