More Fun Comics No. 82

DC Comics published issue No. 82 of More Fun Comics in August 1942. George Papp illustrated the cover that depicts Green Arrow and Speedy battling a gangster with a tommy gun. Green Arrow has disarmed the tommy gun by shooting three arrows into the barrel. This issue’s stories featured Green Arrow in "Robin Hood's Revenge," Doctor Fate in "Luck for Sale," Radio Squad in "Puzzle of the Devil Deaths," and Aquaman in "King of Convict Island.' Other stories feature Clancy the Cop, Johnny Quick, and the Spectre.
The More Fun Comics anthology comic series began as New Fun in February 1935, changed to More Fun in January 1936, before becoming More Fun Comics from March 1936 until November 1947. Superheroes were phased out of More Fun Comics in issue no. 108 as the series switched to an all-humor format.
