He started his career by illustrating early issues of Superman.
George Papp began his comic book career with the occasional feature and cartoon in early issues of the Superman line of comics. "Pep Morgan" and "Clip Carson" were the first features he worked on for Action Comics. Papp's comics work was primarily for DC Comics but he briefly worked for Columbia Comics and Harvey Comics as well. He and writer Whitney Ellsworth created Congo Bill in More Fun Comics #56 (June 1940). Papp and Mort Weisinger co-created Green Arrow in More Fun Comics #73 (Nov. 1941). World War II interrupted Papp's comics career and he joined the U.S. Army. In 1946, Papp returned to DC Comics and drew the "Green Arrow" feature in both Adventure Comics and World's Finest Comics until 1958. He drew the "Superboy'" feature in Adventure Comics from 1958–1963 as well as the Superboy solo title until 1968. Bizarro's first comic book appearance, in Superboy #68 (Oct. 1958), was drawn by Papp. Robert Bernstein and Papp introduced the Phantom Zone and General Zod into the Superman mythos in Adventure Comics #283 (April 1961). His other work includes some of the early appearances of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He drew the Green Arrow character for the final time in The Brave and the Bold #71 (April–May 1967). Papp was fired by DC in 1968 along with many other prominent writers and artists who had made demands for health and retirement benefits. His final new work in the comics industry appeared in Superboy #148 (June 1968). He then worked in commercial art and advertising.
