Snowbirds Don't Fly: Green Lantern/Green Arrow #85 and #86
Woo! First post to the new community. I did come here to post some scans of Golden Age Black Canary, but I saw uadlika asked for some scans from Snow Birds Don't Fly, so of course I had to.
Oliver Queen is having a bad day. He references something about Dinah talling him she's "not going to be home when [he calls] anymore..." which I guess means she's [gasp] decided to have a life of her own or something. So he's moping, then he gets set upon by wannabe muggers. Which should be nothing for the Green Arrow, except this happens:
He struggles off to a hospital, where he decides this is the kind of thing you call your best friend about:
There follows four pages of the horrors of withdrawal, the squalor of addiction-related poverty and how racism drives people of colour to drugs. Then:
There follows: PLOT. Ollie is a hothead, Hal doesn't tell him to shut up. They both end up accidentally taking junk, and Roy rescues them.
Dinah doesn't actually appear until the next issue. The issue is 25 pages long, so I'm hoping 8 pages of it is OK; I didn't want to leave any of this out:
After Ollie shows off his coping skills, he goes a-beating up bad guys, leaving his apartment free for one of Roy's friends to break in, OD and die. Hal, meanwhile, puts two and two together regarding what Roy was talking about and goes looking for him.
Time -and plot - passes. The OD'd friend of Roy's has a funeral.
I'll be back later in the week with some scans of Dinah's mother, who is just as awesome and has just as bad taste in men.
