Colton Haynes Dons Arsenal’s Red Faux-Leathers For ‘Arrow’ Season 3

arsenal-arrow-hed

When Colton Haynes joined CW's Arrow in season two as Roy Harper, it was only a matter of time before he got gussied up in his best red Arrow cosplay as Arsenal -- given that, you know, that's who Roy Harper is in the comics. I mean, he could have been Speedy or, oh, Red Arrow, I guess, but since Speedy is a daft name and they don't even want to call the main guy in the show Green Arrow, they kind of have to go with Arsenal, though that's a rotten codename too. But I digress.

Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official look at Colton Haynes in his dark red Robin Hood suit. Doesn't he look brooding and moody and serious? And isn't that an awful lot of lacing?

Will Eisner’s ‘The Spirit’ Jumps From DC To Dynamite

thespirit

In a surprising coup, Dynamite Entertainment announced that it has acquired the rights to Will Eisner's legendary domino-masked crimefighter The Spirit. The rights were previously held by DC Comics, which published both a comprehensive collection of the original strips and new adventures from creators such as Mark Evanier, Sergio Aragones, Darwyn Cooke and J. Bone.

Dynamite plans to publish new stories for the character, but has not yet announced creative teams or indicated when these comics might see print. Whether Dynamite has the rights to any archive material or plans to do anything with it remains to be seen. Dynamite Entertainment publisher and CEO Nick Barrucci called the acquisition, "a lifelong dream come true."

Eighteen years after Fight Club first saw print, author Chuck Palahniuk is returning to the world of Project Mayhem for a sequel -- which will take the form of a ten issue comic book series illustrated by Cameron Stewart and published by Dark Horse.
