Green Lantern v2 #76 - Neal Adams art & cover

Green Lantern / Green Arrow v2 #76, 1970: In what seemed radical at the time, two established superheroes delve into the social issues of the era. Writer Denny O' Neill and artist Neal Adams begin their historic run, bringing social relevance to comics. The provocative cover employs a monochromatic color palette, uncommon for the time but nicely reinforces the lead characters. Inside, Adams' artwork is exquisite, particularly in his renditions of ordinary people. Green Lantern's encounter with an elderly African-American man (page 6) is especially poignant and masterfully drawn. Not surprisingly, this issue won a bevy of industry awards and accolades. This story was later reprinted in Green Lantern Green Arrow #1. This is number 2 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Green Lantern issues.
