It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
This week’s episode, “Legends of Yesterday,” reunites the Flash and Arrow teams, and fully sets the stage for the upcoming spin-off series, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Oh, and everyone dies. Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Brian Ford Sullivan wrote the episode, which was directed by our new name champion, Thor Freudenthal.
Welcome back to Up To Speed, in which Flash TV show veteran Dylan Todd and newbie Ziah Grace break down the latest episode of The Flash, dispense some Flash Facts, and talk about what works, what doesn’t, and where the series might be headed.
This week's episode brings the Flash gang face-to-face with two visiting Earth-2ers with familiar faces; Harrison Wells and Dr Light. Plus, Cisco gets a codename. 'The Darkness and the Light' was directed by Steve Shill and written by Ben Sokolowski and Grainne Godfree.
Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.
This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1980s, the decade that style forgot. But it wasn't all disco collars all the time; the era produced some great costumes as well. And maybe some of them even had disco collars. Right? Right?
the latest episode of The Flash, but this week we're doing something a little different. This is the week the show crosses over with Arrow, so our usual Pointed Commentary recapper, Matt Wilson, will take a look at this one emerald archer style!
This week, Barry gets possessed by the underwhelming powers of the Rainbow Raider, Arrow shows up and is as big a jerk as ever, and the dialogue gets meta as all get out.
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 will be following along to see how he fares.

Despite that, he is still certainly recognizable, and DC Comics' New 52 initiative has afforded the publisher an opportunity to give Vibe a second chance...
Under normal circumstances, one imagines that the announcement of a new Justice League of America series by the creative team of Geoff Johns and David Finch would be pretty huge on its own, but as of today, DC has added an even bigger push to the new series...
Despite the fact that comics continuity wasn't especially kind to Justice League Detroit's famed break dancing/shock wave shooting hero in the past, things are looking up for Paco Ramone a.k.a. Vibe.
