2016 brought an increasing number of comic based programs to television. Josh joins me in discussing a large cross-section of what both worked and did not these past twelve months.
Cosmo: This year, the DC/CW brand continued its bold expansion, launching one new series (Legends of Tomorrow) and annexing a another (Supergirl). Before we get to those, and the Arrowverse’s namesake, let’s begin with what I feel remains the most consistently successful of the CW shows: Flash.
Josh how are you feeling about the series?
So, it looks like Cosmo will be watching more of Arrow this fall . . .
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Rory Regan, aka Ragman, will be appearing in the fifth season of the CW’s Arrow. He will be played by Joe Dinicol (Blindspot, Grey’s Anatomy, Betas).
Ragman was created by Robert Kanigher & Joe Kubert for their 1978 series of the same name. While the title only ran 5 issues, it is a classic well-worth reading. Since then Ragman has surfaced occasionally throughout the DCU, most notably headlining a limited-series in the early 90s.

Thought that there were a fair amount of comic book based TV series last year? Well, this year there were even more. So, let’s dive right in and revisit what excelled and what was meh in home viewing in 2015 . . .
Cosmo: So, I was thinking that we should start with Marvel’s pair of Netflix series as they were the most high-profile comic book TV projects of the year. As I stated in my reviews, I feel that Daredevil & Jessica Jones both really raised the bar on what a superhero series could be. They were among the best TV of any kind I saw in 2015.
Josh:I have to agree, and not just because Game of Thrones was so-so and Fargo Season 2 has been a slow-burner.
Marvel’s Netflix is shaping up to be the dramatic counterpoint/compliment to their films.

Tonight is a special occasion for DC fans of the CW’s Arrow, and the occult anti-hero John Constantine whose self-titled series on the NBC network was cut short. Tonight, the “Arrowverse” gets a bit bigger by inviting John Constantine into its less darker world to share in a bit of magical mayhem. Seems like a good time to look back on Johnny boy’s last outing and what brought him to this point in the comic book zeitgeist.
Right now, the CW has the most ongoing comic-book shows of any network. With three already on its plate, there is at least one more definitively coming bringing it to a total of four. So let’s look at its two most recent hits before its newest shows debut, The Flash and iZombie. Continue reading The CW’s Finest: Flash and iZombie Seasons 1
