What’s New In The New 52: Introducing Kodiak

By Bob Harras Friday, November 15th, 2013

Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.

“The Outsiders War” kicks off next month in the pages of GREEN ARROW. In December’s issue #26, you’ll be introduced to an all-new villain named Kodiak, who is the head of the Shield Clan. When Golgotha (the leader of the Outsiders) learns that Green Arrow and Shado are coming to their headquarters in Prague in an attempt to take down the Outsiders, he recruits Kodiak and his army to preemptively strike before Ollie’s plans can become fully realized. And in issue #27, when Kodiak and the Shield Clan battle Green Arrow, the first major fight of “The Outsiders War” will end in bloodshed and shocking revelations.

A 6-part story, “The Outsiders War” also has ties back to Ollie’s time on the island. But having already had so many bombshells about his past revealed over the past few months, is there still a part of Green Arrow’s origin story that even he is unaware of still? And what does this have to do with The Outsiders?

In the gallery above, take a sneak peek at Kodiak’s first appearance in GREEN ARROW #26, as well as at an interior page from issue #27 that features Oliver facing off against the Shield Clan.

See you next week!
