Continuing Dark Horse Comics' tradition of finer reprint books, this is the second volume in our archival collection of Mac Raboy's lengthy Flash Gordon run. This series marks the first time that Raboy's Flash Gordon strips have ever been collected. Beginning his comics career in 1940, Emanuel "Mac" Raboy is perhaps best known for his work on Captain Marvel, Jr. and the Green Lama in the 1940s

Dark Horse Archives completes the entire Green Lama series with this second high-quality hardcover - collecting the final four issues of a Golden Age classic! The emerald-clad freedom fighter returns to mete out further justice courtesy of famed artist Mac Raboy and writer/editor Joseph Greene! And, while this 1940s anthology series is best known for its eponymous Buddhist superhero, it featured an astonishing variety of short comics and prose pieces. Daring do-gooders the Boy Champions, Merlin-powered Lieutenant Hercules, flying ace Rick Masters, and the mischievous sprite Angus McErc together show off the creative experimentation that caught fire in the wake of Action Comics #1!

The Green Lama archives finishes up with Volume 2 in this stunning edition that includes every story from the Green Lama #5 to 8.
Historically speaking, the Dark Horse mission to reprint the Green Lama, Magicman, Tarzan and the earlier Roy Rogers editions is admirable.

Artwise, the Mac Raboy work is amazing. Modern readers who have not seen golden age art of this quality will be amazed not only by the `standard' art but also the water colour Christmas story in issue #7. George Roussos, Joseph Lawrence, Jerry Robinson, and Mort Meskin contribute solid stories that reflect a different time. In talking with Mr Robinson in New York, he commented that Mort Meskin was the most creative artist he ever associated with.

When you read the stories, you quickly realize that this was a different time. For instance, the first Green Lama tale has the Lama teaching a soldier a lesson in tolerance and democracy (the Four Freedoms). Rick Masters travels back in time only to realize that he is being taken for a ride. The Boy Champions are delightful, and a fun read. Angus MacErc is a stylish set of stories that has an Elf out of water theme. The top borders of the pages make these tales a designers dream.

Overall, there is no topping this book. The art is well cleaned, and the colors are bright, and for us `young' fans who appreciate golden age books, this is a treasure.

Mac Raboy is perhaps best-known for his work on Flash Gordon and Captain Marvel, Jr., but this collection of comic-book stories featuring the Buddhist super-hero will thrill any fan of top-flight sequential art. Originally a pulp hero, the Green Lama was one of the best comic book characters of the Golden Age. How well thought of he was is reflected by the fact that he was revived by Dynamite Entertainment as part of Alex Ross' "Project Super Powers" series. My only gripe -- and it's a big one -- is that you get four great comic stories in each of the two volumes in tis series and sixteen filler stories. Well, "The Boy Champions" is generally fun to read, but it is all-too-similar to Joe Simon & Jack Kirby's "The Boy Commandos," "The Newsboy Legion" and "The Boy Explorers." That said, it gets better from volume one, story three onward when the art is taken over by Jerry Robinson, celebrated for his work in the early Batman comic books, plus latter-day issues of The Black Terror and The Fighting Yank, among many others. However, there's not much to recommend Lieutenant Hercules, Rick Masters or Angus McErc. Still, truly great art is not something one generally associates with comics of the 1940s and "The Green Lama" has it and then some. I'm not sorry in the least that I bought it on Amazon -- and I'm going to purchase volume one, as well.

This second and final installment of the Spark Publications run of Green Lama is a continuation of the first in quality as well. I would largely repeat my comments made for volume one here, so let me just say pretty much ditto to all the reviews preceding mine. There's a lot to admire in Mac Raboy's artwork, but that in the supporting stories -- these archives reprint entire issues (minus, I assume, out-of-house advertisements) -- is great as well, and the Lama stories are decidedly above average for the era. Recommended.
Still In Mind
It's fitting that Dark Horse puts Featuring the Art of Mac Raboy as part of the title of the Green Lama Archives. The artist, who died in 1967, earned a key place in comics history and deserves accolades still, all these decades later.

You've probably seen Raboy's art in many classic series, from Capt. Marvel Jr. to Flash Gordon to this: A progressive World War II-era series that starred a Buddhist superhero who fought Nazis and intolerance at the same time. Perhaps that's the reason most people have never heard of Green Lama--he tried to help everyone get along at a time when fear and anger toward other cultures was a pretty regular part of life.

In the series, Jethro Dumont (would you be surprised to discover that he is a wealthy playboy?) travels to Tibet to study the ways of the Buddha. He also tinkers somewhat with radioactive salts (well, he had to get his powers somehow). And although the science behind that particular aspect of the comic may be a little suspect, the Buddhist element is surprisingly reverent and fairly accurate.

Green Lama has been reinvented over the years by a couple different writers, but this second volume of Green Lama Archives collects the stories in issues #5 through 8 of Green Lama (published in 1945 and 1946). In its nearly 200 pages, Green Lama Archives, Volume Two combines some of the most charming and engrossing elements of the era's superhero offerings. Since the art already reminds the reader of Raboy's Capt. Marvel Jr. work, it's no stretch that it also has glimpses of Batman and Superman comics of the mixed in. All of those qualities are worth treasuring. If you haven't read these original stories from six (nearly seven) decades ago, you'll find them pleasantly surprising with a wholesome, innocent quality.

Another superb volume, a follow-up to the first volume, which includes the complete issues of the Green Lama magazine, #5-8, again featuring the mysterious hero, The Green Lama, written by editors Ken Crossen and Joseph Greene, and again illustrated by the superior Mac Raboy (with the help of Harry Anderson on one story).

Other features include Lt. Hercules, Rick Masters, Angus MacErc, the Boy Champions and more, written and illustrated by the likes of Horace Gold, Irving Tirman, George Roussos, Jerry Robinson, Mort Lawrence, and more.

Another must have volume to add to the first.

Nice repackaging of a semi-lost gem from the Golden Age. Mac Raboy drew Captain Marvel, Jr. before this and Flash Gordon after it. Definitely worth a look. Om mani padme hum.

Lovely Raboy art. So, plenty of past-ups but there's so little of his stuff out there affordable it's still worth it. Stories are meh.
