Fans of popular CW show Arrow and its upcoming spinoff, The Flash, rejoice - these beloved characters are finally coming to the pages of a comic book! Well, the digital pages, at least. According to an EXCLUSIVE (hggluululuuluummmpphhhhggg) report on TV Guide, Arrow Executive producer Marc Guggenheim will join with Arrow writer Keto Shimizu to bring us Arrow Season 2.5, bridging the gap between Season 2 and the upcoming Season 3. The comic will feature art by Joe Bennett with inks by Jack Jadson, and, since TV Guide made no mention of anyone else, we assume it will be colored by child slaves living in DC's basement. Writers Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak and artists Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur will bring us The Flash Season Zero, setting up for the debut of the TV show in October. Both digital comics will be collected in printed trades in October as well.
This isn't the first time Green Arrow has graced the comics pages. The Arrow digital comic is actually a continuation of the 2012-2013 digital series that served as a companion to the show's first season. Whatever the case, we're glad to see that fans of these shows will finally have a way to read about these characters in comic book form at long last.
