Arrow_2_20_top

The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson follows along to see how he fares.

In this week's episode, "Seeing Red," Roy goes on a rampage, a relationship reaches the breaking point, and a character becomes far more sympathetic (and on TV, you know what that means).

Obviously, SPOILERS follow.

Kent Osborne Explains How Tony Hawk Inspired ‘Adventure Time: Banana Guard Academy’ (Sort Of) [Interview]

Adventure Time Banana Guard Academy Kent Osborne Interview
Boom! Studios

When Boom! filled us in that Adventure Time head writer Kent Osborne would be teaming with Regular Show: Skips artist Mad Rupert for a new series in July that'd include the show's recently-introduced Root Beer Guy, I was intrigued. When the title of the book was revealed to be  Adventure Time: Banana Guard Academy, I was ecstatic. I finally had a reason to make someone answer a question relating to the Police Academy franchise! Fortunately for ComicsAlliance, Kent is a very good sport. Read on to learn about how Kent crossed over from the world of AT animation into comics, who some of his favorite creators are, and how Tony Hawk fits into it all.

‘Beware The Batman’ Returns May 10, Same Bat Channel… Way Different Bat Time

Beware The Batman

The good news is that Beware The Batman Is Returning to television on May 10. The bad news is that Beware the Batman is returning to television... at 3:00 a.m.

As confirmed by Cartoon Network, the remaining episodes of Batman's ill-fated CG animated series will be slid into the Toonami lineup that airs after the late-night Adult Swim block, starting the show over with the first episode on May 10, and getting to the last half of the first (and I'm going to go ahead and assume only) season starting July 27.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Recap, Episode 19: ‘The Only Light in the Darkness’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-1211111

On tonight's Agents of SHIELD, Phil Coulson utters the line, "HYDRA just released the entire population of the Fridge into the wild". If you think this is going to be an hour of Baron Strucker in a forest weepily shooing away a recalcitrant pack of bacon like John Lithgow chasing off a bigfoot, you're going to be disappointed.

But if you're looking for underwhelming spy drama dancing around the edges of a hugely popular nerd film franchise, boy, do we have a show for you! Spoilers for Agents of SHIELD and Captain America: The Winter Soldier follow. Hail Harry and the Hendersons.

Agents of SHIELD Season 1 Recap, Episode 18: ‘Providence’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-121111

Last week's Agents of SHIELD saw some major changes for the characters, and a major change for the viewers -- it was actually a decent episode!

As the ramifications of Captain America: The Winter Soldier continue to unfold on the small screen, the question we have to ask is, can the show keep up the quality? We're all pulling for you, Agents of SHIELD!

Please note that this episode recap once again contains spoilers not only for Agents of SHIELD, but also for the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Jason Aaron And R.M. Guera’s ‘Scalped’ Coming To TV From WGN America

Untitled-1

You may remember WGN America as the national cable channel where you could watch The Bozo Show, find out about Chicago's often-terrible weather, and watch a huge number of Cubs games, but it's soon to become a channel with original, hour-long dramas, just like every other cable channel on TV. Among its upcoming shows is a TV adaptation of Scalped, the hugely acclaimed Vertigo series by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera with covers by Jock that follows FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse as he goes undercover to bring down a crime ring at the Native American Reservation where he grew up.

Doug Jung, writer of the movie Confidence and quite a few episodes of the undercover-cop series Dark Blue, will write the show's script.

‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’ Producer Giancarlo Volpe Explains Focus Groups In New Comic

Art by Giancarlo Volpe, http://giancarlovolpe.tumblr.com

In his time working in animation, Giancarlo Volpe has worked on some of my all-time favorite cartoons. As a writer, director and animator, he worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender (including directing the pretty phenomenal series finale), King of the Hill, and most recently as the director of the JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time movie. As a result, you'd think he'd know a little something about how to make an exciting and enjoyable animated series, right? But it seems that even he can learn a lot from a focus group!

At least, that was the opinion of the studio during Volpe's time as the showrunner for Green Lantern: The Animated Series, when he attended his first focus group run by the studio. On his tumblr, Volpe recounted the experience in the form of a comic featuring an appearance by Bruce Timm, and to say the least, it does not sound like a fun time. Read a few pages below!

Meet The New Silver Ranger From ‘Power Rangers Super Megaforce’ [Exclusive Video]

SilverRanger01

You may have noticed that here at ComicsAlliance, we are pretty excited about the Power Rangers, and Power Rangers Super Megaforce, in addition to having 300% more adjectives than other adventure shows, is probably the most exciting of all. It's built around the theme of Power Rangers who celebrate more than two decades of the franchise by transforming into past Rangers (and unlocking their secret powers with the help of guest stars returning from previous seasons), and that's definitely something we're into.

That's why we're pretty pleased to be a part of introducing the world to Cameron Jebo, the actor who will be playing the all-new Silver Ranger in upcoming episodes. Check out the exclusive video to meet him and learn a little more about his role in the series.
