COMICS: ARROW: SEASON 2.5 And THE FLASH: ZERO YEAR Digital Comics Coming This Fall

The Arrow digital comic series will return on Monday, September 1st with "Season 2.5" and it will be joined by The Flash: Zero Year. Both of these will be set in the same universe as the TV shows and promise to set the stage for what's to come. Read on for details!

On hiatus since last year, Arrow's digital comic book series will return this September with executive producer Marc Guggenheim tapped to set the stage for what's to come in season three. He will be joined by fellow writer Keto Shimizu and artist Joe Bennett. The events of the comic takes place between seasons two and three, and will be made up of two arcs. "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." He also promises that we will be introduced to many of the new characters who will be introduced in season three.

The Flash showrunner Andrew Kresiberg meanwhile will pen The Flash: Zero Year, a story which takes place between the pilot and the first season'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." Will you guys check these out?

@Himura Of course. There's always a small time jump. If you mean a big time jump, 1 or 2 years, then I doubt it.
Klone - 7/9/2014, 2:20 PM

I know. It's "hey, female audience. Watch for more of this" with zero subtly whatsoever. Also pretty funny that S2 had all the men shirtless with weird facial expressions like they belong on the backcover of a 90's porno.

That Green Arrow gif was nice until Grant ruined it!

Jollem - 7/9/2014, 2:24 PM

very nice!!
Klone - 7/9/2014, 2:35 PM
"I don't think that bolt of lighting struck you, Barry. I think it chose you"

Do you people SERIOUSLY think that is good dialogue?? No rhetorical by the way.
Jollem - 7/9/2014, 2:35 PM
phil hester doin' the flash. that's cool. he did a lot of good work on green arrow

@Arrowhead77 - better not be, or i'll be typing mean words in their general direction >:(

@Klone Its one of those cliché platitude lines that fails at trying to dignify fate and or destiny.
EhMaybeSays - 7/9/2014, 3:05 PM
This bland semifinal goddamnit.
Klone - 7/9/2014, 3:06 PM

Exactly... a [frick]ing lighting bolt choosing you? Uuughh!
Jollem - 7/9/2014, 3:15 PM
damn, you kids'll try and find anything to bitch about. there's nothing wrong with the dialogue
MercSoul - 7/9/2014, 3:25 PM
the line is an easter egg to a ....crisis comic book, dont remember wich one, but was when barry dissappear and he go back in time and he is turned into the lightning that impact barry and gave his powers
Klone - 7/9/2014, 3:32 PM
Because as we all know, the great Jollen's standards shouldn't be questioned at all...
Klone - 7/9/2014, 3:33 PM

Still a biazarre thing for a character to say like that. Forced if we're being kind here.
knighted - 7/9/2014, 3:36 PM
Whats funny about those Green Arrow gifs of him jumping off the building is that in the actual ep he doesn't jump off like that. Its a straight forward leap off the building without the over complicated twist.
aRandomSinisterClone - 7/9/2014, 4:16 PM
capt cold better get a shot at TV, not just stuck in the comics. the Rouges are a really cool idea. dudes doing shit to pay for a party lifestyle. new 52 cold is awesome.

That entire scene is cringeworthy.
GuardianAngel - 7/9/2014, 4:35 PM

I am very much a fan of the show, but it has its terrible moments, the dialogue being a huge flaw. They try to make the characters relatable and real, but nobody talks like that. As a DC fan, I've gotta point towards Marvel. Their characters actually talk and act like real human beings.
Jollem - 7/9/2014, 4:46 PM
i thought the scene on the roof was pretty awesome. and they talk like that. what's the problem? and marvel is any better at dialogue? really? okay
GuardianAngel - 7/9/2014, 5:24 PM

You're right. If I found out a friend could run at almost the speed of sound, this is what I would say.

"I think it chose you because you can inspire people, watching over your city like a guardian angel, making a difference, saving people... in a flash."
GuardianAngel - 7/9/2014, 5:27 PM
If they established that this is a world where everyone talks like this, that's more understandable, but there are other instances where people talk more normal. Felicity is a great example of this and even Barry sometimes. You need consistency when it comes to tone. If they establish it as a realistic world where people talk normally, you can't just switch it to Dark Knight dialogue and expect people not to notice.
Jollem - 7/9/2014, 5:42 PM
i think it's just a couple simple lines. it sounds like words someone would say
Spideyinthemcu - 7/9/2014, 5:49 PM
Please go to print
Jollem - 7/9/2014, 6:25 PM
^^that's what i'm talkin' 'bout
