Arrow: About That Reveal...

Wow…well, it looks like I have my work cut out for me tonight—even though I was hoping for impeachment. :)

But be honest, who saw tonight’s reveal coming? Quite the shocker!

Let’s discuss and break down what happened. And I’m going to put a big SPOILER ALERT here for anyone who hasn’t yet watched the episode. Time to peace out until you’ve seen it.

Okay, for those of you still here, let’s talk about “Fighting Fire with Fire’s” big turn:

Curtis’ husband slapped him with divorce papers!

Arrow: Maskless

We could have a really long, drawn out discussion debating whether life imitates art or if art imitates life. Honestly, I only have a very surface-level understanding of those concepts—or what I think they mean, at least.

That being said, I believe tonight’s episode leans on the idea of art imitating life. A lot of times when different artistic mediums tackle real-life hot topic issues, they can leave the audience split because it can feel contrived or somewhat cheesy.

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.

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.

Ten Moments that Mattered in 2016

To make your mark on the future, it helps to take stock of where you’ve been. 2017 promises to be an exciting year for DC and its fans, but before we celebrate the new year, we thought we’d look back on 2016 and consider some of the places we’ve been. DC made some bold choices in the worlds of comics, film and TV, and many of them set our course for the months and years ahead. The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.
