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: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.
Mar 20, 2020 17:28:01 GMT
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
