Green Lantern / Green Arrow v2 #84, 1970 - A small town becomes a willing mob, thanks to a small plastic device circulated by a super-villain. Two of the bronze age's best artists team-up on their only full length story. Neal Adams' pencils are generally dominant and exceptionally drawn. Stylistically, Bernie Wrightson has a far different approach but his inks in this case are surprisingly complementary. The first half of the book is stronger aesthetically, particularly the opening splash and Green Lantern's close-up on page 6 (see interior page above). This is number 10 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Green Lantern issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.

Page 6 from issue #84 is the best panel page from the entire classic Neal Adams run on Green Lantern. It's cinematic in scope and a top notch example of sequential story telling at its very finest.
