Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Is the Kid a Killer?"

Father of ten-year-old rodeo star Kit Cody asks his old friend Alan Scott for help: he's seen Kit in the company of some very unsavory types and is afraid his son's getting involved with crime. Alan follows Cody and does indeed see him hanging around some gangland types, but doesn't try to fight back when they spot him because he's tangled with them as Green Lantern and doesn't want to take the chance of them recognizing his fighting style out of uniform.

Later Kit himself comes to Alan Scott's residence, as he's handing out free magazines door-to-door. After the pages are opened he and Doiby are knocked out by a strange gas, and wake up to find the house robbed. A curious clue is left behind: the free magazine, whose pages are blank. GL and Doiby track the gangsters to their hideout and capture them, then the hero explains to his sidekick what was going on: the ink on those free magazines was made of chloral hydrate, which evaporated and became knockout gas when the pages were exposed to warm air. The boys handing out the magazines were just pawns, and Kit Cody's not becoming involved with crime. He just wanted to hand out the most magazines to win a puzzling prize: a free cowboy costume.
