Synopsis:
If the Green Lanterns have an interplanetary Corps, the Green Arrows deserve at least a convention in Vegas, right? Only problem is, it's a whole lot easier to fake being a Green Arrow than being a Green Lantern. And there's definitely an imposter afoot at the World's Green Arrow Convention . . .

Synopsis:
In Dimension Zero, GA discovers that it's a world just like his--sorta. On this Earth, his counterpart is known as "Xeen Arrow", and he helps find a way to get GA and Speedy home.

Notes:
Reprints Adventure Comics #253

This tiny little story--both parts totaled only 12 pages--is of fairly large significance. Although DC celebrates Barry Allen as the "discoverer" of the multiverse, in fact this story predates the Flash's adventures on an alternate Earth by three full years. The Flash #123 had a cover date of September, 1961, while part one of this story, "Mystery of the Giant Arrows", appears first in September, 1958.
