Hal and Ollie Take on Child Abuse

Dennis O'Neil (writer) and Neal Adams (penciler) don't tread lightly when it comes to tackling issues of the day in their run on Green Lantern/Green Arrow. During their time on the title they address the issues of racism, child abuse, cult followings, and more! Seems simple enough today, but back in the 70's comics had never seen this type of raw expression before in comics.

In this issue, a controlling old man who goes by the name of Grandy, uses a little girl for her powers of mind control. With her powers, Grandy attacks people, commanding the little girl to "Make them sorry!" Our heroes, along with Black Canary (who gets a topless shot, oh yeah!) are determined to get to the bottom of the situation...

For a late Silver Age comic, this issue is a great read, as is the entire O'Neil/Adams run on the book!
