Arrow: Mo Metas, Mo Problems

Before I jump into the meat and potatoes of this column, I want to touch on something…

Metahumans.

I recently wrote a chapter-by-chapter look at GREEN ARROW VOL. 1 for DCComics.com where I gave my feedback and thoughts regarding the newly released trade that collects Green Arrow’s first Rebirth storyline.

Arrow: We're Back, Baby!

Welcome back, guys!

Hope everyone had a nice break. I’m trying to thaw out from the frigid Midwest cold and ice, but ready to bring this column to you.

I guess the best place to start would be with the obvious: Laurel!

Errr… fake Laurel, that is.

I sort of thought something was up when we saw her at the end of last episode. Part of me believed it could really be her, but another (bigger) part of me knew it had to be some kind of work.

This Just Happened: Green Arrow Sees Red

Seattle’s a great city, but in the pages of this week’s GREEN ARROW #15, it’s also a city under siege, and the one man who can help has seen his life destroyed and his reputation tarnished. Much of it has been at the hands of Queen Industries CFO Cyrus Broderick, who orchestrated Oliver’s professional and personal downfall. Now the shaken hero finds himself questioning his entire mission in life at the start of Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra’s action packed issue.

Chapter-by-Chapter: Green Arrow Vol. 1

When I was sent the first volume of GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH and asked to share my thoughts on it for the DC website, I was pretty psyched. I write about Arrow for the #DCTV Couch Club, and I’ve been wanting to read the new Green Arrow book for a while, so everything aligned perfectly.

After reading, I think it’s best if we break down my thoughts issue-by-issue. So beware, spoilers lurk ahead!

The Archer and the Canary: The Not-So-Secret History of Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance

Oliver Queen’s dashing facial hair isn’t the only big return for him in the just released GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN—his utterly hopeless (and sometimes completely embarrassing) devotion to one Dinah Lance, aka the Black Canary is back too, and the two of them are well on their way to reclaiming their status as one of the DC Universe’s most iconic power couples.

Reader Recaps: The Joker and Harley Quinn...Together Again?!?

With Rebirth now in full swing and so many exciting new titles to try, we can’t blame anyone for needing a reminder of what happened in the last issue. Or maybe you’re looking to add a new book to your list and need to get caught up on earlier chapters? Either way, we’re here to help. Every week, we’ll be recapping the prior issues of that week’s new Rebirth and Hanna-Barbera comics, as well as sharing our favorite moments. It’s a quick, easy way to ensure you’re up to speed and ready for New Comic Day.

Justice League Action - "Shazam Slam" (clip)

The world’s greatest DC Super Heroes are heading to Cartoon Network in the premiere of Justice League Action, an all-new animated series that will kick off with “Shazam Slam,” a four-part special event debuting, Friday, Dec. 16 at 6:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on iconic DC characters, Justice League Action will premiere new episodes Saturday mornings on Cartoon Network, beginning Dec. 24.
 
In "Shazam Slam," the villainous Black Adam battles Batman on the Rock of Eternity and unleashes a horde of Djinn determined to turn the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state.   Affected by the otherworldly powers of these primordial monsters, Batman becomes possessed and is turned into a giant flying Batmonster laying waste to the Hall of Justice, with only Superman capable of taking the fight to the Dark Knight. One by one, the Justice League - with the help of Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and The Wizard (voiced by Carl Reiner) - must hunt down and defeat each Djinn in order to yet again save the world from destruction.
