Green Arrow #26 comic reviewFramed for murder by the Ninth Circle, Oliver Queen hits the road to prove his innocence. This leaves Seattle in the capable hands of Ollie’s friends. Taking its name from Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams’ famous run (minus the social commentary), part one of “Hard Traveling Hero” catches up to Green Arrow on the road where his investigation crosses paths with another member of the Justice League: the Flash.

Despite the continued use of the awful costume redesign (seriously, this yellow piping has to go), it’s fun to see the Flash here. DC Rebirth keeps to the DCU’s history in that despite both being close friends with Hal Jordan, neither character gets along that well with the other.

Arrow - Lian Yu television review

The Fifth Season of Arrow comes to a close in an explosive season finale that returns Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) to Lian Yu to save his kidnapped friends and put an end to Prometheus (Josh Segarra) once and for all. And with the deck stacked against him, he’s not going alone. It’s homecoming week in the season finale as Ollie enlists the help of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law), Digger Harkness (Nick E. Tarabay), and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). The final choice is a bit odd, considering the last dozen times we’ve seen him Deathstroke has been murderously intent on killing Oliver. Apparently sometimes prison rehabilitation works, as Slade is less murdery and crazy than we saw him last. While one of Oliver’s rag-tag band betrays him, Slade proves to be worthy of his trust.

Arrow - Missing television review

Desperation makes strange bedfellows. As Oliver‘s (Stephen Amell) loved ones start going missing in a coordinated attack planned by the imprisoned Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra), our hero is forced to procure Chase’s release and put together his own team to take on the likes of Chase, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig), Black Siren (Katie Cassidy), and Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin).

Arrow - Honor Thy Fathers TV review

The reveal of Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) as a serial killer creates all kinds of new trouble in Star City as dozens of criminals prosecuted by Prometheus are set free. Meanwhile, Oliver‘s (Stephen Amell) attention is drawn to the madman’s latest mind game involving an unearthed corpse delivered to city hall of a man killed by Robert Queen (Jamey Sheridan). Returned to town just in time for the twisted surprise (wow, what a coincidence), Thea‘s (Willa Holland) belief in the father who raised her will be tested as the truth comes to light. Even behind bars Prometheus’ games haven’t stopped. What else does he have up his sleeve?
