Mentor And Partner: Jeff Lemire And David Ramsey On Bringing ‘Arrow’s Diggle To Comics [Interview]

Diggle Green Arrow 24

One of the bright shining lights of The CW show Arrow's first season was the character of John Diggle and the actor portraying him, David Ramsey. Far more than a sidekick, Diggle really took on a life of his own. He's proved popular enough that he has made the transition to comics, in the tradition of Jimmy Olsen (who originally appeared on the Adventures of Superman radio show).

To mark Diggle's brief appearance in Green Arrow #24 and in anticipation of his co-starring role in issue 25, the series' "Zero Year" issue, we sat down with series writer Jeff Lemire and Ramsey himself to talk about the transition.

‘Arrow’ May Be Looking For Its Amanda Waller

AWaller

The CW's Arrow really seems to be expanding its version of the DC Universe in its upcoming second season, and the newest DC character reportedly joining the fold could really blow the lid off things in terms of making the show's TV world a lot like the one in comics: Amanda Waller, who has been in charge of the Suicide Squad and Checkmate in her illustrious career as a sometimes-evil, sometimes-not government powerhouse.

Although no one has been cast for the role just yet, reports indicate that Waller will appear in this season's sixth episode as the head of A.R.G.U.S., the government investigative agency introduced near the end of the first season by way of Diggle's friend Lyla Michaels, a.k.a. Harbinger.
