As promised yesterday, Speedy, as usual, needlessly ejaculates Green Arrow from the Arrowcar with the catapult, hoping that Ollie either goes through an open window or remembered to update his will.
|Green Arrow isn't Batman. He doesn't skulk in shadowy corners and sidle up behind you to spook you, he bursts into your open window in bright colors saying "HERE I AM!"|
Batman and Green Arrow are like the Vega Brothers in Zorro, The Gay Blade (1981).
|No joke: that's great Golden Art composition there, viewed from just over Ollie's left shoulder.|
Naturally, Green Arrow is oblivious to the fact that's a guy in a devil costume lurking on the ledge preparing to shoot him. Fortunately, the Boy Backup is there to save his bacon, as usual.
|Seriously: Golden Age artists really knew how to compose. |
Those panels are brilliantly parallel AND opposing.
|"That Nervy Kid." See? Ollie can't remember his name, either.|
While Ollie ponders how to make the most dramatic entrance possible, That Nevry Kid finds the Red Devils and starts beating the snot out of them single-handedly.
|Speedy is the best sidekick ever. He's DOPE. So to speak.|
Ollie makes his dramatic entrance, narrowly avoiding landing face-first on the hood of his comedically large yellow car:
|"I'll park the Bananamobile under this tree, where no one will notice it."|
The Red Devils retreat up the rollercoaster rather than get a growly lecture from Ollie about how they have failed this amusement park. So Ollie does, as usual, the least sensible thing imaginable.
Gonna give you a second to imagine what it is.
|Ollie, you DO know that the rollercoaster cars come BACK to where they started, right?|
Green Arrow DRIVES the Arrowcar, America's largest personal conveyance, UP THE ROLLERCOASTER.
What could possibly go wrong?
TOMORROW: What goes wrong.
