Notes

Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Mirror Master is referred to as Joe Scudder here, but from The Flash (DC, 1959 series) #239 (February 1976) on his first name is Sam and later in #255 (November 1977), the scripter of all these stories, Cary Bates, makes the villain's full name Samuel Joseph Scudder. The Top is also erroneously referred to as Roscoe Neyle here when his established name is Roscoe Dillon.

Synopsis

When Black Canary is hit by a car and desperately needs a transfusion, Green Lantern's search for Green Arrow becomes even more urgent. A report on the wreckage of the Arrow-Plane leads Green Lantern to Green Arrow, but also to a scavenger, who nearly kills Green Lantern before Green Arrow can grab his bow and remember who he really is.
