Justice League Action - E. Nigma, Consulting Detective TV review

After the Joker (Mark Hamill) traps Batman and leaves a scavenger hunt of riddles for Green Arrow (Chris Diamantopoulos) and Wonder Woman (Rachel Kimsey) to follow, the pair of heroes reluctantly accept the help of the recently reformed Riddler (Brent Spiner) who is more than a little miffed at another Bat-villain stealing his schtick. “E. Nigma, Consulting Detective” is a fun, if goofy, episode of the Riddler leading the two heroes through deciphering a list of ridiculous clues eventually leading back to the Joker’s hideout.

Arrow - Fallout television review

Despite choosing to end the flashbacks into Oliver Queen‘s (Stephen Amell) lost years before his rescue and return home, the new season of Arrow can’t quite resist an entire new set of flashbacks to fill out the season premiere. Opening five months after the death of Prometheus and the explosions on Lian Yu, “Fallout” gradually fills in some of the gaps of what happened to various characters. Despite explosions on the entire island, the only casualty turned out to be William’s mother (Anna Hopkins) who appears in an awfully clunky death scene just long enough for Oliver to promise to take care of William (Jack Moore). Thea (Willa Holland) may be temporarily stuck in a coma, likely until sweeps, the rest of the team comes back in one piece (more or less).

Green Arrow #30

Green Arrow #30 comic reviewGreen Arrow‘s road trip finally leads him back to his former hard traveling companion. Needing help to get into space to check out the Ninth’s Circle secret satellite, Ollie calls on his old pal Hal Jordan. Writer Benjamin Percy certainly has fun bringing this argumentative pair back together for one more road trip.

After trading a few barbs, Ollie explains the situation and the pair set off into Green Lantern’s realm looking to destroy the evil syndicate’s satellite located on the dark side of the moon. Over the past several issues the comic has teamed-up Green Arrow with various Justice Leaguers, but this is the pairing we’ve been waiting for. And it doesn’t disappoint.

Green Arrow #29

Green Arrow #29 comic reviewGreen Arrow‘s road trip leads him to Gotham City where the reality of being a spoiled rich boy running away from his troubles is put to good use getting him one-step closer to answers as his investigation into Ninth Circle leads the Emerald Archer into the Court of Owls.

Finding himself in the middle of an Owl hunt, Ollie is able to use the time to his advantage to try and shake some answers from his own prey. The arrival of Batman is expected, as is the clash between the two heroes over Oliver’s recent troubles and motives. Nearly coming to blows, the two heroes do end up working together to save an innocent and, despite not wanting it, Green Arrow is forced to admit Batman offers some sound advice as Ollie will need the help of another Justice Leaguer should his quest continue.

Green Arrow #26

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.
