Green Lantern / Green Arrow v2 #86 , 1970 - After discovering Speedy's heroin addiction, Green Arrow and Green Lantern try to address the drug problem firsthand. The thought-provoking cover shows the heroes overwhelmed by the enormity of the challenge. In this conclusion of a two-part storyline, Neal Adams takes great care in layout and pacing. One features a dramatic sequence framed by Green Lantern's silhouette (see interior page below). The artist also employs two full page splashes, including the stark depiction of a junkie's overdose. Adams' realistic style perfectly captures the seriousness of the theme. This story was later reprinted in Green Lantern Green Arrow #6. A golden age Green Lantern reprint by Alex Toth resides in this issue as well. This is number 12 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers.
