Adventure Comics #256 - Jack Kirby art


Adventure Comics v1 #256, 1959 - Recalling his time being stranded on an uncharted island, Oliver Queen recalls how he came to be the Green Arrow. Jack Kirby does an admirable job illustrating the origin story. There's a crispness to his work from this period and this one is no exception. Atypically, he also appears to be responsible for both the pencils and the inks. This is the last of his Green Arrow back-up tales in Adventure Comics. This story was later reprinted in Secret Origins of the Super DC Heroes. Other artists in this issue include George Papp. See today's posts or more Kirby or Adventure Comics issues.
