Description
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.'
