The dirt hits the fan in Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye #3 by Gerard Way, Jon Rivera, and Michael Avon Oeming. Chloe Carson has been revealed as the lost heir to an underground kingdom, something even she didn't know, and the corrupt company Cave used to work for is after her.
But as he rushes to save his daughter from the literal monster that's chasing her in this exclusive preview for issue #3, Cave has three important advantages: a lifetime of adventuring experience, a tricked out car that can burrow into the ground at high speed, and a best friend who happens to be Wild Dog. Oh, and he also has a cybernetic eye, but we're still figuring out what's going on with that thing.
On this week’s episode, “Penance,” Oliver has a secret mission and gets a new outfit, Tobias Church is making moves against Star City, and Team Arrow’s new recruits have a pretty rough time. Dermott Downs directed the episode from a script by Brian Ford Sullivan and Oscar Balderrama.
This week’s episode, “A Matter of Trust,” finds Oliver continuing his quest to save Star City both as mayor and as the Green Arrow --- but will his new team ever learn to listen? Will a news anchor make Thea’s life a living nightmare? Will Cody Rhodes make an absolutely dashing new villain? Gregory Smith directed the episode from a script by Ben Sokolowski and Emilio Ortega Aldrich.
In the last few weeks, DC has seen the return of Extraño, the Subway Pirates, KGBeast, and Harold Allnut, and honestly? If you had asked me to pick four of the least likely returns, those would've definitely been on the list.
Now, though, DC has another one in the pages of Gerard Way, Jon Rivera, Michael Avon Oeming, Nick Filardi, and Clem Robins' Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, on the offchance that Cave Carson himself returning to headline a high-profile title wasn't shocking enough. So in case you missed it... well, read on if you don't mind a spoiler for the issue's last page.
It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, where returning Arrow watcher Chris Haley and newcomer Emma Lawson dig into the details of Team Arrow as they clean up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
This week’s episode, “The Recruits,” finds Green Arrow spread thin between his crusade to fight crime in a costume and his daily duties as the new mayor of Star City. But will his new team of vigilante hopefuls ever be able to work together? James Bamford directed the episode from a script by Speed Weed and Beth Schwartz.
I honestly thought we were past the point where superhero TV and movies could surprise me anymore. I mean, we're two years out from a movie where a Celestial showed up on screen and an Academy Award-nominated actor talked about the Nova Corps, and last year's TV season brought us Gorilla Grodd as a full-on telepathic talking super-gorilla who fought the Flash and an entire show about the Atom, Captain Cold and Hawkgirl flying through the time stream to fight Vandal Savage. We are, I thought, long past the point where just telling me a character's going to show up on a TV show is worth getting excited about.
And then the CW announced that Wild Dog was going to be on Arrow.
If you're not familiar with Max Alan Collins and Terry Beatty's Wild Dog, the simple explanation is that he's DC's version of the Punisher. I don't know if that's exactly what they were inspired by, but it's hard not to look at the two characters and see a pretty huge influence in Wild Dog and how he works, especially when you consider how popular the Punisher was getting in the late '80s.
The thing is, Wild Dog doesn't really feel like he's meant to be an equivalent as much as the product off someone reading comics about a perpetually grumpy vigilante who runs around with a giant skull on his chest and saying, "Well we can do something weirder than that."
Q: What are some concepts in comics you feel were woefully underused? - @daveexmachina
A: There are definitely things out there that never quite got the attention that it seems like they deserve. There are cool concepts that hit at the wrong time and tweaks to the status quo that were swept away in favor of going back to basics, and there's one that I can think of pretty easily that seems like it should've been the next big thing and got dropped like a hot potato instead. And believe it or not, I'm not talking about Wild Dog.
