The CW’s superhero series Arrowre-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 will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, a certain unit that's more of a squad makes its TV debut, Ollie turns to Russian mobsters for help, and Dig gets involved in a moral quandary.
Of all the redesigns that took place for DC's "New 52" relaunch, the one that was most disappointing to the staff of ComicsAlliance was undoubtedly the one that hit Amanda Waller. Rather than the short, stout, and impossibly tough woman who appeared in the pages of John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell's Suicide Squad, the redesigned Waller was young, slim and sexy. She was, in other words, just like every other "idealized" body type in superhero comics, and lost a bit of what made her unique.
Well, it seems our disappointment has found us in good company, alongside no less than Ostrander himself. In a column at ComicMix that went up this week, the writer expressed both a love of the character he shaped for over 60 issues, and a dismay at how the character's redesign conflicts with his original intent.
Well, the makeup of that Suicide Squad has been revealed in some new photos posted to CBR. The members appear to be (from left to right): Bronze Tiger, mad bomber Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Waller, and Deadshot (Michael Rowe). Also present are A.R.G.U.S. agent Lyla Michaels/Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson) and, surprisingly, none other than Team Arrow member John Diggle (David Ramsey).
Michel Fiffe's Copra, a strange, superheroic adventure inspired by John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell's classic Suicide Squad, just completed its initial 12-issue run. In that time, Fiffe wrote, drew, lettered, published and even shipped every issue himself, once a month. As he says, it was essentially all he did for an entire year, but the end result was unquestionably one of the single best comic books of the year, if not the decade.
Fiffe plans to continue the series, but during his self-imposed vacation, I spoke to him to get his thoughts on Copra, the year of his life he spent doing exactly the comic he wanted to do, and why he wants to continue.

John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell's run on Suicide Squadin the late '80s is one of my all-time favorite comics, and has a pretty legitimate claim on being the best team book that DC ever published. In the wake of Crisis on Infin
It's been over a week since DC Comics announced any creative team changes on their New 52 superhero line, so we were pretty much overdue when the publisher's The Source blog announced several pencil artists coming and going in a series of posts Thursday. The affected books are Animal Man, Birds of Pre
Just when you think things couldn't get more ridiculous for hammer-wielding Juggalette Suicide Squad member Harley Quinn, along comes the recent Suicide Squad #3 from writer Adam Glass and artist Cliff Richards, where Harley has sex with Deadshot in a bathroom and apparently compares her own vagina to a clown car.One of the most noticeable things abo

Q: Which casualty of the original Suicide Squad run do you feel was done best? -- @MikeTubbington
A: For those of you who have never read Suicide Squad, one of the hooks to the book was that in order to live up to the name, a character was killed off in e
I'll be honest with you: I'm probably about as far from the target audience DC's going for with the new Suicide Squad #1 that came out this week. Not only am I the opposite of a new reader, I'm specifically a guy who has a lot of attachment to The Way Things Used To Be. John Ostrander's 66-issue run on Suicid
