Recently, me, my brother (AkronAwol17) and my grandmother, started watching the CW show, Arrow. We are currently season 2, episode 11, I believe, and I've gotta say, I have really enjoyed it so far. Rich, deep characters, a cool (if a bit cliché) setting and concept (the whole "I'm the only one who can save my dying city, regardless of whether it sees me as bad or good" thing), with lots of interesting twists on the original concepts of characters, such as Deathstroke and Black Canary. I can't wait to watch more and go further into the story.
With that being said, I'm considering the idea of starting to read and follow the current Green Arrow comics (Vol 5). I'm hoping that I enjoy the comic version as much as I've been enjoying the CW series.

A bit late with this news. Then again, comic book news is not my forte.
A crossover of Suicide Squad and Justice League is coming. It's written by Joshua Williamson with art by Jason Fabok and Tony Daniel.
Plot: The story deals with the day Amanda Waller knew was coming: the Justice League has discovered the existence of Task Force X. You can imagine DC's biggest heroes fighting for truth and justice won't agree with the idea of a government black ops team of supercriminals forced to go on missions with bombs planted in their heads.
DC Comics and IDW Publishing are releasing Love is Love, a graphic novel anthology which supports the Equality Florida in its efforts to help victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
It set for December 2016.
Announced today via The New York Times, the anthology is the brainchild of Marc Andreyko, known for comics work such as Manhunter and Batwoman, who says it was inspired by the collaborative charity efforts of the ’80s such as We Are The World and Live Aid. Among those initially announced for the anthology are comedian Patton Oswalt, Lost’s Damon Lindelof, Superwoman‘s Phil Jimenez and The Unworthy Thor‘s Olivier Coipel.
While the New York Times article is sparse on creator announcements, several more have confirmed their involvement via Twitter. Steve Orlando will contribute a story with Iain Laurie, James Tynion IV will team with Molly Osertag, and James Asmus, Ryan Ferrier and Ming Doyle are also working together as part of the project.
The anthology will clock in at 100 one-or-two pages stories across 144 pages, and will retail for $9.99.

trailer for anyone who wants an introduction to Super Sons
Plot: “When I grow up” part one! The sons of Batman and Superman have graduated to their own monthly comic-but if they want to survive, they’re going to have to share it! Writer Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAN & ROBIN, SUPERMAN) teams with rising-star artist Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2) to bring you the adventures of the World’s Smallest. This debut issue looks at the lives of Robin and Superboy and their destiny to follow in their fathers’ footsteps, while we meet a new villain whose ascension parallels the boys’ own understanding of their powers-except that he believes it’s his right to rule over every being on the planet!
Kotobukiya announced the first two figures in its new Ikemen line to the delight of hunky superhero fans everywhere. The first figure is a 1/7-scale sculpt of Batman's former sidekick Dick Grayson as Nightwing.
The figure has alternate face options including an option with and without his domino mask. First edition figures will also come with a third face option where Nightwing appears to be mid-sentence, lips pursed. The figure will be released in March for 8,000 yen (US$71).
The second figure in the line-up is Jason Todd as the Red Hood. Details like price and a release timeline will be announced soon.
The Nightwing and Red Hood figures are based on artwork by illustrator Ricken. Ricken drew covers for Birds of Prey #22 and #23 and is credited as an artist for DC Universe Presents #17 and Volume 3: Black Lightning and Blue Devil, and worked as penciller for Teen Titans #13 and #14. In their profile they list their interests as "masks, capes, and buttocks."
Kotobukiya's Bishōjo line expanded outside DC properties to include Marvel, Tekken, Street Fighter, and American horror film characters. Fans will have to wait and see which guys get the Ikemen treatment next.
There is a movie called PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN? which comes on October 13, 2017
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940's. While Marston's feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her 'sexual perversity', he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research -- while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!
Jan 19, 2020 20:44:07 GMT
Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
Jan 19, 2020 22:50:13 GMT
Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
