New Comic Book Shows Heading To TV

What a great time it is to be a comic book nerd! Not only are comic book movies dominating the theatres, they are now heading to our television sets. DC has already earned success, with Arrow, which is the most watched show on The CW, and Marvel launched Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., last year, to a tepid response from audiences.

It was obvious that both Marvel, and DC would launch more shows after the success of those two projects, but who would have thought that we’d be seeing the launch of this many comic book projects. DC alone is launching four comic book shows this year, while Marvel has announced the launch of the long rumoured, Agent Carter TV show, and will be releasing Daredevil next year to begin the road to their The Defenders mini series.

Arrow: Season 1 Review

*Review contains spoilers* 

After ten years, the story of a young Clark Kent was wrapped up with Smallville. Now the CW, needed their next superhero to fill the void Clark Kent left. It may have seemed a strange choice; I know people who dismissed it right away when hearing that it was only about the Green Arrow. Now, it seems to have paid off, becoming a hit for the CW. I being a massive DC fan was excited just to be getting a new live action entity of some kind. It took me a few episodes to completely fall in love with this show, but now I am swooned.
