This character got his start in pulp magazines in the early 1940’s and made his first comic book appearance in the pages of Prize Comics #7 (September 1940).  He appeared in this title for 24 issues and eventually got his own book, and a new look, in Green Lama Comics #1 (March 1944).  This title ran for eight issues, until 1946.

The Green Lama was drawn by the great Mac Raboy whose most notable work was on Captain Marvel Junior for Fawcett.

  1. Oops. Right off the bat I said “61st” episode, when this is really the 62nd. Oh well, you know what I meant!

  2. David Akers says:

    Wow, I didn’t know he had been drawn by Raboy…makes him almost a cousin to Cap Jr.
