Flash Arrow

Article by Gregg Katzman

The first part of the latest Arrow and The Flash crossover has finally arrived! Instead of strongly connecting to the two stories going on in their respective cities (e.g. Zoom and Darhk), this all-star team up is here to mostly build the hype for The CW’s upcoming DC show, Legends of Tomorrow. And build the hype it most certainly did! The episode offered cheerworthy action scenes, gave Vandal Savage a memorable introduction, and clearly had fun introducing Hawkman and Hawkgirl’s mythos to The CW universe. There was a lot to like about the episode – and obviously, we’re looking forward to the second part of the story in Arrow – but to us, there’s three things that made the episode especially enjoyable.

Martian Manhunter cover

Article by Gregg Katzman

Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. The Flash. Those are just a few of the names that immediately come to mind when people talk about the DC universe. Despite appearing in comics since 1955 and being absurdly powerful, J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter, has never reached the same level of popularity as his heroic peers. He doesn’t have a movie on the way, either (or at least one hasn’t been announced yet…). Despite not being a household name, DC is giving the martian another chance to step into the spotlight in his very own series. The Earth is once again at risk (when is it not in the DCU?), but don’t let that familiar story element fool you because Martian Manhunter is one of the most entertaining and gripping titles DC is currently publishing. A good comic book should never fly under the radar, so we want to help spread the word about this great story!
