Green Lantern v2 #83 - Neal Adams art & cover

Green Lantern / Green Arrow v2 #83, 1970 - A child with psychic powers is manipulated by a devious adult for his own gain. Interestingly, he strongly resembles Spiro Agnew, the only US vice president to resign in disgrace. Neal Adams delivers several fine sequences, including an unlikely attack from a flock of birds on pages 2-4. This reference to the 1963 film is further reinforced by the appearance of director Alfred Hitchcock on page 4 panel 3. One of the final scenes depicts a group of mindless children, converging to finish off the helpless Green Lantern and Green Arrow. They stand eerily over the heroes, their fists clenched without the knives that were apparently too much for the censors. Adams' draftsmanship nonetheless remains sharp. This is number 9 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Green Lantern issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
