My understanding of TV's Arrow comes largely from reading ComicsAlliance's weekly recaps. Because of that, I assumed that --- Flash and Legends of Tomorrow crossovers notwithstanding --- it wasn't the kind of show that really lent itself to battles against cybernetic spider monsters. Immortal assassins and hooded vigilantes, sure, but cyber-spiders? That's right out.
But now, I have been proven wrong. In the next chapter of the digital-first Arrow: The Dark Archer comic, Malcolm Merlyn is going to be facing off against a reasonably terrifying giant mutant spider. And in case you didn't know, it's a story co-written by Carole E. Barrowman and John Barrowman, the former Doctor Who star who plays Merlyn on the show, and illustrated by Daniel Sampere. Check out a preview below!
Arrow crafted enough upheaval by its Season 3 finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” to leave Season 4 something of a blank slate, but it seems the League of Assassins will remain in play. Not only has John Barrowman confirmed that Malcolm Merlyn will return this fall, but so too will the “Canary sisters” have a part to play in setting up certain Legends.
We've filled you in on last night's Eisner Award winners, but we'd be remiss if we didn't also report who smooched who on the ceremony's main stage. Sandman creator and longtime comic book/novel scribe Neil Gaiman and British television show host/comedian Jonathan Ross took the stage at the end of the show to present its final few awards, but between reading winner names, Ross explained his desire to try kissing his friend again after not quite getting the results he'd hoped for at the ceremony a few years back.
