Green Arrow shows Green Lantern the plight of the people living in the tenements of slumlord Jubal Slade. But when the Guardians of the Universe observe GL roughing up Slade, they bring him to Oa and reprimand him. Against their orders GL returns to Earth and collects evidence to put Slade away. In response, the Guardians contact Green Lantern, but Green Arrow argues that there are serious problems across America that have escaped the attention of Green Lantern. The Guardians confer, and decide to send a representative to accompany the two heroes as they go on a journey of discovery.

Indexer Notes

Though the splash page still features only a "Green Lantern" logo, the cover logo changed to "Green Lantern Co-Starring Green Arrow" with the original printing. Page 6 is a 2/3 page; page 16 is a 1/2 page; and page 23 is a 2/3 page. The Guardian who is assigned to accompany Hal Jordan is generally called "The Old Timer" in this series, though he is later given the name Appa Ali Apsa. Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics (April 2007).
