Freedom Fighters: The Ray - Comic-Con 2017 Sneak Peek

Catching the Comic-Con crowd by surprise, producers of FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY unveiled the first look at footage from CW Seed’s newest, animated DC Super Hero series, the first Super Hero show to feature a gay character in a title role. The reel was full of familiar faces, including evil alternate versions of Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, as they battled title character Ray “The Ray” Terrill and his team of heroes.

Preview Monday: Green Arrow #24!

In this week’s issue of GREEN ARROW, Seattle has fallen. Oliver Queen is all too familiar with the destruction and betrayal the city has endured.

With the city in ruins, Oliver must avenge his friends and fight against the Ninth Circle – taking back what his family has built. Will Oliver be able to salvage what’s left of the city. Find out more in this week’s issue of ARROW #24 from writer Benjamin Percy with art by Juan Ferreya and Nate Piekos of BLAMBOT (letters). 

Arrow: The End is Nigh

You might need to bear with me a bit on this one, folks.

A long time ago—my first blog, actually—I wrote about how I’m a newcomer to Arrow. As such, some of the references in episodes require me to do some (usually a lot) of research to connect the dots from other seasons.

After tonight, I found myself doing quite a bit of digging to understand who Malcolm Merlyn is and how he connects within the Arrowverse.

But first…

Arrow: Not Done Yet

High drama in Star City tonight.

Thea returns. Rene still can’t decide if he wants to be a dad. Ollie’s dad is an accidental killer. The flashbacks return…

I was really excited to see Cody Rhodes’ character, Derek Sampson, return.  I’m a little bummed he wasn’t really used as much as I thought he would be, but that’s how the cookie crumbles, I guess.

 

Overall, tonight had a lot of moving parts in it. 

Arrow: Ollie's Law

It’s been phrased differently over time, but Murphy’s Law basically breaks down to this: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

It’s safe to say that this pretty much sums up tonight’s episode.

But I’d like to step back for a brief second. I saw something in the comments section of last week’s column that I’ve noticed for a while now and it looks like others see it, too.

Curtis aka Mr. Terrific—err, Mr. Comedian?

Arrow: Who Is Cayden James?

Annnnnd......we’re back!

After a little hiatus, Arrow has returned. I have to admit, though, this episode left me feeling a little like Homer after he joins the Movementarians and they show him the brainwashing video.

Homer: “Wait, I’m confused about the movie. So, the cops knew that internal affairs was setting them up?”

Movementarian: “What are you talking about? There’s nothing like that in there.”

Maybe the gap between episodes kind of threw me, but I found myself a bit confused at points tonight.

Chapter-by-Chapter: Green Arrow Vol. 2

Hey, hey! Matt Ross, here. If you don’t know me, I cover Arrow for the #DCTV Couch Club. A few months ago, I wrote a readthrough that looked at GREEN ARROW VOL. 1, so when I heard Vol. 2 was out, I was excited to jump into the new trade!

After opening, I did what I think most of us do and immediately flipped through the book as a way to get a feel for what I was about to read.

Of a Feather: Julie and Shawna Benson Soar with Batgirl and the Birds of Prey

It was just about a year ago that BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY was announced as a part of Rebirth and DC fans were introduced to its sibling writing team of Julie and Shawna Benson. Since then, we’ve seen the newly reunited Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress take on—and eventually team up with—a slightly shady new Oracle, outsmart a crime lord who happened to be Helena’s mother and go toe-to-toe, figuratively speaking, with the sinister Snake Gang. And that was just in the very first story arc!
