Arrow: The Complete First Season hit stores this past Tuesday, and with Season 2 premiering in just a few weeks (October 9!) we figured it was the perfect time to start leisurely re-watching the entire first season in preparation. Paced out, we'd be able to watch an episode a day, starting with the day of release and ending on the exact day of the premiere. It was the perfect plan.
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.

Shado teaching Oliver how to aim. Slade Wilson mentioning he likes swords. The vigilante telling Moira Queen that she’s failed the city. Huntress raising a crossbow for the first time. The final fight between the vigilante and Dark Archer.
It’s time for another edition of Caption This!, the monthly game from DC Collectibles where we give you the picture, and you give us the (hopefully far less than a thousand) words.
Villains Month continues this week across The New 52, with the likes of Penguin, Clayface, Eclipso, Ra’s al Ghul, Black Hand, Cheetah and The Rogues running rampant in the pages of your favorite comic books.
You know our characters. You’ve read their comics, watched their movies and TV shows and played their games so often that you practically have them memorized, right? Well, we’re about to put that to the test.
