That’s right folks! The hit series Arrow’s companion comic series will be returning this September with the show’s producer Marc Guggenheim on board to set us up for what’s to come in the highly anticipated Season 3. The comic will be set in between the events of Season 2 and 3 of the show and will introduce us to many of the characters that will be turning up in Season 3 of the hit series. “We’ve tried to put in all the elements that people like about the show, so there will be Oliver and Felicity banter,”Guggenheim said in an interview with TV Guide. “We’re going to see what’s happened to Detective Lance after he collapsed in the season finale. A good chunk of the burning questions left over will get answered in the tie-in comic.”
The Flash’s show-runner Andy Kresiberg will be writing the companion series to the new show that many of us are eagerly awaiting to debut on the CW Network. It takes place between the show’s pilot and it’s second episode. “Barry will [already] be the Flash, he will have his team, everyone will be in that world, and we’ll introducing a new set of villains that we won’t be seeing on the TV show. It’ll feel like the same heart, humor and spectacle that you get watching Flash,” he promises. The series is set to be co-written by Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak and features art by Phil Hester. Mr. Bliss (a character who first appeared in DC’s Starman comic series) will be the main villain, and “He has the ability to manipulate peoples’ emotions. He and his cadre of circus folk have decided that they’ve been pushed around long enough and are going to take it to society.”
I for one couldn’t be more excited to check these out. I’m a big fan of Arrow and can’t wait for The Flash. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below!
