As a person who has recently come to terms with the fact that I like shows about pretty people with problems, I have to say I’d probably watch all of the shows mentioned in today’s page.
That said though, I do have to admit that after the first couple of episodes I lost track of Arrow. I hear nothing but great things though, so I’m looking forward to checking it out when it hit’s DVD or Netflix. The CW has oddly done a pretty good job when it comes to adapting comic characters. Smallville was a juggernaut that I don’t know can be equaled in terms of longevity, but if Arrow stays hot who knows? It’ll be interesting to see how the upcoming SHIELD show will fair, being from a more “traditional” network like ABC.
I’ve always felt that comics lent themselves better to TV adaptation than to movies. Since they are originally published in episodes, it makes perfect sense that comics would work as TV episodes. Plus, it’s a much more cost-effective undertaking. I mean, I’d be much happier to see Preacher or Y: The Last Man end up on HBO or AMC than I would in my local movie theatre.
Today’s page comes to us from the skies high over Chicago via Thomas Zahler:
Thom Zahler, ladies’ man, man’s man, man about town, is also the creator of the Harvey-nominated, beloved superhero romantic comedy “Love and Capes.” He also just wrote and drew the inaugural issue of IDW’s My Little Pony micro-series featuring Twilight Sparkle. A graduate of the Kubert School he currently travels the backroads of the country going from convention to convention, kind of like Reno Raines in “Renegade.”

Have a great start to the week, friends! Only a few more sleeps until Iron Man 3! AND Free Comic Book Day!
