The Green Arrow-George Papp-1948

Journeyman artist George Papp, an illustrator in the tradition of "Bob Kane," was the perfect choice to draw the early Green Arrow, a character very much in the tradition of Batman! This colorful 1948 story in particular, "the Red, White and Blue Arrow," evokes the style of the Dynamic Duo's tales from the mid-forties on. Papp would later go on to a long, successful but not particularly memorable run on SUPERBOY.
