The “drug issues” launched 50 years ago…
The famous Green Lantern/Green Arrow “drug issues” — 1971’s Green Lantern #85-86 — are 50 years old in 2021 and comics historian Arlen Schumer’s latest webinar is dedicated to the landmark story by Denny O’Neil, Neal Adams and Dick Giordano.
Here’s the official description:
THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREEN LANTERN-GREEN ARROW DRUG ISSUES free webinar!
WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 6:00pm EST
At the dawn of the 1970s, legendary comic book artist Neal Adams forged brand new artistic identities for several mainstream comic book characters, including Batman and the X-Men, as well as two distinctive DC heroes, Green Lantern and Green Arrow.
Adams’ photorealistic visual acuity enabled the artist and his writer/collaborator, Denny O’Neil, to break new ground telling the kinds of reality-based stories that could be told in “superhero” comic books, and in doing so, made their Green Lantern-Green Arrow run of (only) 13 issues one of the most honored and esteemed, memorable and influential in comic book history.
Hosted by award-winning comic book-style illustrator and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), this webinar will feature comic book panels, pages and covers that will make you look at those Green Lantern/Green Arrow comics as if for the first time!
