Dennis O'Neil talks classic Green Lantern / Green Arrow, Roy Harper, & social relevance

As part of DC’s 75th Anniversay panel at San Diego Comic Con, several DC legends talked with fans. Dennis O’Neil, whose name CBR misspelled, was his usual insightful self.

On the topic of his and Neal Adams’ classic GA/GL run, here’s what was heard:

One fan thanked Denny O’Neill for shaping Roy Harper, aka Speedy, and the man he became. He then asked if O’Neill knew at the time how important those early “GA/GL” issues would be.

“Not really, we were aware that we were pushing the envelope and all of a sudden we were getting all sorts of attention,” O’Neill replied. “When they reprinted it in hardcovers and a slipcase edition a few years ago, I could not in my wildest fantasies have imagined it would even be remembered.”
